+1. Most people see no problem going to their LFS to buy fish. Well, how do you think they get their fish? They order them and they're shipped through the mail; same thing if you place your order online.SnookMan88 said:Ordering from the internet is quite safe... Most fish you see in a store have been sent through the mail SEVERAL times already. Lets say its a fish bred in asia: 1. shipped from asian farmer to asian distributor 2. shipped from asian distributor to US distributor 3. shipped from US distributor to US company distribution 4. sent from US company distribution to chain store for sale... If you can find a US breeder then the fish should only be shipped once from the US farm to your door!
