I'm thinking about getting back into the aquarium hobby. We don't have a big selection where I live and while I see there are some sites to purchase fish online, I'm curious if anyone has had any experience on that. Any sites you recommend or don't recommend? Also I'm assuming when you order fish online you have to be at home when they deliver since I'm sure you can't just leave those at the post office? Curious how that all works. Thanks.

Hi there. We have two salt water tanks that we have had and maintained for over a year now. I started watching a ton of YouTube videos as we were getting into the hobby and expanding our salt water fish selection. One of the websites that kept coming up was this one: https://m.liveaquaria.com/divers-den.

They have live fish that you can purchase and have delivered to your house. We have not actually bought any fish from them because the shipping was quite expensive for us, but it may not be as bad for you. They are who I would check out if I were looking for a particular fish that I couldn't find at our nearest pet store.

Saltwater huh? I'm not that ambitious although I certainly love a good saltwater tank. I had to sell my 65 gallon freshwater tank when I moved and have been missing it for quite some time. I need to move to a bigger place first though. Unfortunately the selection isn't the best here so I have been trying to see if buying online is an option. Apparently you can even do it on Amazon. Not a big selection but I was surprised. I think it was a third party type of thing.
