phishybusiness.com

I am just curious to know if this is a credible online vendor. I didn't see any remarks about it in the vendor section so I was just wondering if anyone could share opinions or experiences.

thanks

You might need to adjust how far back threads are shown (down at the bottom there is a drop down box in case don't know) because Phishybusiness comes up a lot. I haven't ordered from them yet but every thread I've seen has been outstanding. One of the best online vendors out there (or so I've heard ).

I've never used this vendor and I'm not sure if this info will help, but, I was just in the nano forum. There is someone logged in as mattsin30. His signature says Fishy Busniess along with a phone number. I'm not sure if he owns it, works at it or whatever. But, I just seen in like 2 minutes ago and noticed it. I just went back to that forum and he was still listed as being logged in.

I ordered from them once... item I wanted they showed on their web site at a very aggresive (low) price... I placed the order... they billed my MC... I waited for the item to arrive... a few/several days after I received confirmation of the order they sent me an email advising they gave me a MC credit as they no longer have the item... meanwhile I lost the chance to buy the item on anotehr sale price from another vendor and ended up having to pay regular price... I will never deal with them again... it just isn't right to advertise items you don't have, can't get and will never honor.

They seem unorganized. I bought a light from them, they shipped it with the wrong ballast. They replaced it, but I was a little annoyed because I had paid for express shipping.

i live 2 hours away and drive there every weekend just for a few frags. i spend no more than 100 at a time. they are amazing! their employees are knowledgeable, prices are great for what you get, and if you would ever go to the store then you'd see that they actually care for and take care of what they have. i'd definitely recommend them.

I personally have never ordered any livestock via the net at all. I've read that some people use liveaquaria.com or petsolutions.com. I know they both offer cuc's, but that's about all I know.

Sorry...and good luck
