Anyone know a good site to buy some small plecos and invertabrates? I was looking online but all i could find were those otto cats that probably would get eaten by my cuddas.. I need something kind of like a bristlenose pleco or something like that..

Shipping is very expensive for fish. Anywhere from $25-40. People do buy very successfully online it appears and orders generally arrive the next day before noon. But make sure what you order is worth the shipping charges.

You're also find fish on Ebay but then again, will pay almost as much for shipping for 1 fish as you will 20 so if you do go online, make your order worth it's while.

Shipping is one of the reasons I go to the planted tank and or aquabid.

There is no reason to pay for plants or most invertabrets to arrive by next day air. priority mail is fine in most cases. I have received all of my shrimp, endlers, and all plans I ordered online that way without a problem.

Just make sure that if they are sending you critters they ship them in breather bags.

I know that I can go to the swap and shop on the planted tank and get 20 Red cherry shrimp for 20 bucks. And most sellers will throw in a 5 extra in case of DOA.

Fish are a whole different ball game, but you will most likely get a better rate through a private seller as opposed to a company.

Yeah i actually really wanted to get 20 cherries for 20 bucks but then the kribs would probably eat them lol.

Thanks for the tip tho!
