Online source for cool fish

Where I live, I basically have petsmart/petco. Thats it. There is one other place but it's not much different in terms of selection.

Any recommendations on places I should look to order fish on line?
I already familiar with AZGardens by experience, and by google search. Anywhere else I should look?

(if you have strong anti/pro reviews, please don't post the review or you'll invoke Mod "actions". Please just PM them to me :P)

They have a huge variety and a lot of wild caught specimens. I've personally been in the store when I lived in Portland and they have an excellent facility. I've only purchased in person but they do ship fish and plants. They have a lot of stuff on too.

+1 for Wetspot. They are on the other side of the state for me, and I either have fish shipped in the fall/spring or will head over there in the summer. It's totally worth it. They have tons of odd balls, and a huge variety. They have some of their fish listed on Aquabid.

I haven't ordered from msjinkzd but I will +1 her because she stocks cool fish, mostly nanos though from what I've seen. is another one, I've never ordered from him either though.

and of course you can always check the sell/trade section here, or ebay/aquabid
