congrats, once u buy online you never go back!
man let me know what website you went on so I can order from there because this is going to be my first to order on linelab911 said:Just got six new peacocks in the mail this afternoon and so far so good. The water was cold so no one had color until I floated the bag for 1/2 an hour and released them. They all have colored up now and look terrific. I am so pleased! This was my first time getting fish on line and I was a bit nervous as to the quality.
Here is what I ordered:
Got all of them at $12.95 each and all guaranteed Male and 2.5 inches! The shipping was a great price too! $30.00!!! Well, I just wanted to share my excitement with other fish nerds, I'm going to go back downstairs and enjoy my new fish.
This is why you buy it from localDMWave45 said:I thought the shipping cost was insane too but it's not bad depending on where the place is and what service you select. Also eeven if it is expensive, if you buy small fish the prices are generally lower than LFS so it balances out. AND the quality is almost guarenteed to be better.
The problem with that (atleast for people like me) it would cost me more in gasoline to pick up the fish than if I had them shipped to my house. Of course I live all the way up in Traverse City.beezer720 said:I'll tell you what, I've never ordered online, though I have wanted to. I assume you can't go wrong there. But what I recommend, look in your area for local breeders. That is where you get GREAT fish and GREAT deals, and for the most part, the people are really cool and helpful. You get near wholsesale prices and you know exactly what your getting as you are picking them out. And I can't stress the quality of the fish I've been seeing at these places. I assume most of the online places are local breeders as the ones I've been going to ship nationwide. Most specimens are F0-F2. In the Detroit area there are at least like 5 that I know of, and I'm sure there are countless others I don't even know about. Inquire locally about some near you, as on top of the great fish/prices it's always fun seeing peoples setups and what they have available.
