Oh yeah! they send a paper catalog too. They usually do free shipping of orders of $50 or more. I love that place. Its like the Grainger for fish.
I have never purchased fish but a bunch of equipment and supplies.

they are okay but certainly not the cheapest!!! i prefer bigalsonline.com. they are a canadian company but ships out of new york. over $75 ships free and there are coupon codes you can find to get an addition 10% off.

I found Foster & Smith to be more expensive then the others. Compare prices is the best thing to do. Also I have a wholesale credit with these guys. There prices are pretty good. http://www.lonestarpet.com/Default.aspx

Whisper your not comparing apples to apples. Lone Star Pet is a wholesaler. Foster is not.

Dr F&S has the best fish/coral guarantees in the business they maybe are not the cheapest but you get what you pay for especially when it come to marine livestock. I have never heard anything good about saltwater fish .com they have had many many complaints so I steer clear of them. I drop 3-4 hundred on fish and corals every time I place an order so I want the healthiest specimens I can find with the best guarantee Dr F&S can't be beat for that...Blue Zoo Aquatics is the next best..

Ok sorry but I still say Foster and Smith are more expensive then some of the others. I never order from them because there are so many more that are much more reasonable for the same product.

Dr. F&S gets first pick of fish from Quality Marine. Largest importer of saltwater fish in LA. Foster is located in the same building. When buying livestock quality is what your looking for. Not price.

I just got a notice from Drs. F & S liveAquaria they just marked down some of their fish prices in the divers den it's not a huge amount but it's better than full price.
