On-Line Shopping recommendations?


AC Members
Hi All,
If you have not already heard, Drs. Foster & Smith was closed by Petco last month. I did a lot of my on-line equipment purchases there.

Any suggestions from the group of another reliable on-line dealer to shop at?

(moderator, sorry if this question is in the wrong section, wasn't sure where to put it)

Are you talking about equipment? or fish? I'm sorry Drs . F & S is gone, an awesome Co.

For equipment ,check out kensfish. For fish, the wetspot in Portland, OR.

I too hate to see the Docs go away. I know I've bought a bunch of stuff from them over the years. Like said, Ken's is great. There's some good ones on eBay as well.
If you are looking for fish, Liveaquaria.com is still around.

Otherwise it depends what you are looking for,

I quite like buying from trade shows and conventions, and auctions too.

retail I'm likely to go with supercichlids.com for food, hanaquatics.com for plant or shrimp needs, most all fauna has come from msjinkzd.com, I've bought a couple of things from brooklynhardscape.com too.

But it really depends what you are looking for. for cheap dry goods, without any sort of urgency, I'd suggest a combination of amazon and camelcamelcamel.com
