Online fish sources

Are there any good sources online for fish? My only local fish store has a very limited selection (cannot get SAEs, rams, etc.), and must think the fish are made of solid gold based on the prices.

I wish I could find an online source with a good selection, quality items and shipping practices, and good prices.

Here are the ones I know about.

http://www.liveaquaria.com/ - moderate selection, relatively high prices
http://www.azgardens.com/ - lots of horror stories, high shipping cost racket
http://www.thatpetplace.com - looks good, out of almost everything I want

What are your experiences, and sources? Anyone order from wholesalers out of country? I have a lot of fish I would like to order, so will consider all choices out there.

azgardens is ok.... The high price shipping is for the well being of your live critters (overnight).

I've heard nothing but good things about this one.

again, the shipping is HUGE! but it's worth it. And try not to buy live things in the middle of winter & summer.

I second the vote for http://www.franksaquarium.com/

See if you can find some people in your area that are also looking to order from there and splti the shipping cost!! Its a great way to meet people in the area that share your hobby.

Any local breeders in your area? Many of them have imports so you may be able to get the fish you are looking for.

Nope. Thanks for the idea though.

Anyone else with online fish sources?

Well what are you looking to order?

I can check my buddies stocklist and see what is available. Shipping runs about $35-$40 for overnight (about the only way to ship most fish at this time of year, plus coming directly from a wholesaler).
