I was just curious if I were to find an AB seller that's actually in my state, is it cheaper to ship to me than if the seller was in a different state? I'd really like to get one some time from around the area but if it's going to still wind up costing $35 to get it to me, then I'd just stick with the cutesy impulse buys from the LFS's.
Thank you for the fast responses. I should look for local breeders and see if they'd be willing to meet up with me. It would definitely save the fish added stress of shipping, however I don't know how comfortable it would be for a breeder to meet up with a customer in person.
