    I'd like to get some extra clean-up crew snails. Any recommendations on the best/least expensive place to buy them online?

    Just got my order in yesterday. The money I saved from not buying them at the LFS covered the shipping and even on top of that I saved money from if I'd gotten the exact same order from the LFS. :)

    Good luck, I see you've found a place.

    I just wanted to comment on your use of those two words in the same sentence. Best and least expensive don't usually go together. You will often have to sacrifice one for the other. ;D

    Don't know how their shipping prices are, but Otty, Kogle and I go up to Premium Aquatics (Premium Aquatics INC - live rock and aquarium supply) for a lot of our stuff. They definitely whoop up on the competition in our area, but we pick up. They are also a sponsor of 3reef so you can help the cause at the same time!! Might be worth checkin em' out..

    I agree, was trying to find a balance which is usually possible.
