For me half the fun is being able to select the pieces I want. Repped anyway for posting an aquarium deal.

Notwithstanding this, liveaquaria has really gone down hill with their new policies.

What would you recommend as a better alternative for freshwater tropical fish? I don't have any good local fish places in my area.

Thank you very much! Going to check it out.


I don't need anything that complicated... a small school of Corys and Rasboras. I'm starting my kids in the hobby with a small freshwater. When I had my cichlid tank (couldn't take it with me when I moved) I used to order from Live Fish Direct which I was happy with, but they only sell cichlids.

Our local place in Portland, Oregon does online fish sales. The wet spot tropical fish. Pretty neat place.

Driftwood is something you REALLY need to see in person.

Anytime I've ordered online, they send out the worst pieces that none of the walk-in customers wanted.

If you are talking purchasing fish, I have found many good deals and unique/exotic fish with local fish groups on facebook. That said facebook has since banned fish sales. However I'd find some local fish groups on the book and ask if the groups have moved fish sales over the band platform as many of my groups have done.

Also your local fish groups will usually have details on local fish swaps. Fish swaps are usually where you will find the very best deals.

If you're looking to save money, and don't mind buying in larger schools, AquaHuna is a fish distributor out of Washington State. Unfortunately, you have to buy in schools (usually 10 or a dozen, but it varies with the fish). But they have consistently have some of the best prices AND the cheapest shipping. They also have a bunch of the somewhat harder to find nano-fish like rasboras. This probably isn't the best time to be shipping from or to the north, since they ship priority mail only, although I think they use heat packs in the winter. But if you can wait until the spring, they're a really good option.

Since this is for a kid and you don't have any fish stores nearby, you might want to try to focus on fish that can easily reproduce in your tank?

dwarf shrimp, guppies, mollies, and swordtails all breed without you even trying.
Shrimp are actually a really neat new addition to the hobby. Neocardinia species(red cherry shrimp) are prolific breeders and can double their population every month. They come in an array of colors and are very unique. However, fish will limit your breeding success.

Corys can even be bred pretty easily. Just make sure you get a hearty species. Some of the cories(like Panda Cories) actually have pretty demanding care requirements.
