Where do you buy fish online?


I'm curious as to where most of you guys and gals get your fish online. I only have one or two LFS left around here (best freshwater store closed a few years ago to retire) and I try my best to steer clear of the chains.

I love freshwatertropicalfishonline.com for all of my cories and pleco needs

The only other place I've ordered from was wetspottropicalfish.com as they get tons of new stuff all of the time. I got a trio of red eye dwarf puffers last year and I'm waiting for more to come in on their list. They also have chocolate gouramis and all sorts of hard to find species. Let me know where you go as i love looking for new things.

I buy from others via Aquabid, or go through breeders. I like to have wild type bettas though so sometimes it is much easier finding a person rather than an online outlet.

If you decide to look into North American fish, zimmerman's fish, sach systems aquaculture, and Jonah's aquarium are all helpful.

Aquabid is the best. It depends on what you're looking for though. If you go aquabid, just check the seller make sure they have positive feedback. Another really good place is Wetspottropicalfish.com. They have a really good selection of fish and plants. If you are looking for african cichlids there are places like daves rare fish or little africa aquatics among others. Between my brother and I having ordered from a number of places and speaking with others some places definitely have better specimens than others so just really check out what you're ordering online. Myself personally I stick with the places I listed but there are others like bluegrass aquatics and a number of other places.

www.wetspottropical.com from my personal experience has the best varieties of rare cichlids/dithers and plecos. Their pricing isn't bad and their shipping is top quality.

I've been waiting to buy from pt member msjinkzd (also has a website with that name). Unfortunately the several types of fish I want to buy (including dwarf puffers) are currently out of stock. I tried contacting her about when a new shipment might be in but sadly have not heard back from her yet. Even with the added wait I'd rather buy from her than other sites/people as she properly quarantines, de worms, and acclimated fish and inverts before selling. She also lives decently close to me.. too far to drive there and back to get fish myself but close enough it should be a quick trip for fish shipping.
