IMO, Aquabid charges too much for shipping as does Liveaquaria. I'd rather support my independent LFS. If there is a certain fish I'm looking for, I can count on my independent LFS to order them. I have purchased a few fish at Petsmart as well. Not all Petsmart stores are bad.

If you ask your LFS they will usually order what you want. I have done this and then they call when the fish arrives and i go and pick it up. It will be in the bag from the shipper and less stressful for the fish going from Shipper to store tank then to your tank. Just like having it shipped to your house with out hassel.

actually aquabid does not charge a shipping fee at all..aquabid does not ship fish...
when you buy from aquabid ,you are buying from fellow hobbyists and fish stores...and not all of them charge a lot of money for shipping..and very often their prices are far lower than local shops.yes , some do charge high shipping prices , but not everybody...
i have yet to find a better place to buy my fish...

You WILL find cool stuff on Aquabid every day that your local store simply cannot get for you.
Honestly, I wish I could build a new store down here and form a partnership with some of the better sellers on Aquabid to stock my store with all the cool species that my would-be competitors could never hope to find. That would be awesome.

Mine doesn't leaves them in bags. Any request of certain fish species is ordered, he usually orders a few to sell in his store. Once the order comes in, he calls me the fish are in. Any fish ordered are put in tanks to sell that way I get to choose which one I like.
