Online Shopping

Post by Myaj » Mon Sep 18, 2006 3:04 am

Figured I'd put together a list of online supply stores. Its often a good idea to comparison shop to find the best prices.

I'll start the list with stores that I know of, please feel free to add to the list by replying and I will add those stores to the list here, to keep them all in one place.

Can I assume that the links each of you have posted are reliable trustworthy sites that you have purchased from or know someone who has purchased from them?

I would not recommend azgardens.com, as several people I know of have had bad experiences with them and their "guarantee" sucks.

I've had good experiences with AZgardens, including having to use their guarantee.. but that was years ago. I feel bad if they are not as good anymore...

Within the last year, there have been several people I know of who have received dead fish packed in muddy water, dead plants, dead shrimp, etc. I dunno what their guarantee was but now its only good for in-store credit of sorts, only good on future purchases from them. And after getting fish in mud, who'd want to order again? So basically they threw their money away.

"Your Fish Room Supply House" is their tag line; they have "Products geared to the Ornamental Fish Breeder, Aquatic Pet Store, Importer, Researcher and serious Hobbyist."

They're a good source for bulk fish food, whether freeze-dried, flake, pellet, or frozen. They also carry Cyclop-eeze, medicated fish food, a good selection of fish meds, and even fish food ingredients if you want to make your own.

They also have an interesting selection of hardware.
