    I don't think I would be comfortable ordering from them online...even in the stores their stock is many times unhealthy...not to mention there are too many "assorted" descriptions for me. There would be no way on some of the fish to have any idea what you might get...then might be fun to open a box full of something unknown and surprising!:)

    i didnt really take a look, i just thought it was interesting, The shipping at liveaquaria and thatfishplace is 5 bucks more, but your right about the prices. crazy...... There is this petco out here where i live that actually has some really healthy fish, the angels fins are actually flowing and long and there wasnt a dead fish in any of the tanks, there live plant selection is also very green, and there is also some variety. Theres a petsmart out here too that has really healthy fish. maybe SOME employees do care? haha
