I used to recommend Aquatic Arts to everyone. I have not had good luck with them as of late. When they started out they were in-home breeders like some of the people we have here. They expanded to try to meet demands for other fish and are now ordering in. My first order was sizable, Fish and plants, when they arrived they came in a Seacrest Farms box. The mailing lable to them from Seacrest was still on the box on the inside flap. If I wanted to buy from Seacrest Farms, I would go to PetCo or Petsmart. I would certainly not be paying their exhortation shipping cost. (Not one of those fish survived over a year) My second order was shrimp during their Relocation Sale, several deaths...I was almost out of shrimp. I went to Aquabids for dream blues, that tank is going gangbusters. (To clarify, after the fish loses, I went on aquabids and ordered the same fish. These were not new tank set ups either. My Aquabid fish have been great.)
My first batch of cherry shrimp was from Aquatic Arts. They ended up having scutariella which while not fatal is still a huge pain. Ended up buying my next batch of Neos from Flip Aquatics. Had 2 DOAs but Rob always packs extra shrimp and there were even new babies in my bag. No sign of scutariella or dreaded ellobiopsidae.
My next shrimp will probably come from BuyPetShrimp.com, looking for some nice-looking Taiwan Bees.
