I'm starting to see more and more of this supplier. Apparently a lot of local fish stores use to use them before they went public. Does anyone have any experience with recent shipments in regards to the quality and health of fish? I'm thinking of buying some, but there isn't a lot of feedback yet.

I would prefer to order through one of the more reputable established retailers than one that decides to spend their money on filling my facebook ads.
From what they are saying they are either a new or established wholesaler who wants to get a cut of the direct to consumer action. What makes them better than any of the other companies that already do exactly that?
My understanding is Liveaquaria is the public facing selling side of QM and Saltwater Fish is the equivalent for SDC, Same exact people that the stores are buying from. What wholesaler is more reputable than those two?
Maybe I am just salty about the spam of advertisement form them, but I would prefer to see new retailers offering value to customers with their spending. I would prefer to see new retailers making a name for themselves to, provide well conditioned fish, like Divers Den, TSM, Marine Collectors. over spending money advertising their spot in the race to the bottom on fish price.

I checked them out thinking I would pay no shipping charge by having the fish shipped directly to a lfs. I thought that was what seperated them from Live Aquaria and others. Win win win...distributor, lfs and me. I never could get the shipping to work, so I gave up. Interested to see someone's experience.

I have placed 4 orders with them. The draw for me was the value of what I was ordering.
First order I ordered was destroyed by ups. Which sucked because I had ordered a huge colony I couldn’t get from anywhere else. Money refunded promptly. Second order was right on time and fish were larger than I had expected. Third order I had ordered some anemones. Ended up getting fish. They responded and sent out the order again. Again it was mispicked and I got fish. They offered a refund and keep the fish or keep the order and they would try again. This time no problem. The last order I got last week was delivered on time. The mother colony was huge and the fish were big and healthy and I couldn’t find them anywhere for the price I paid. It’s also the only place I have shopped that will let you break the payments up into 4.i really like that option.

Liveaquaria and Salrwater Fish are not owed by either QM or SDC.

Yes I bought from them about 2 months ago. Great fish! Everything loved, packaged extremely well. The only problem, their website has been down for over a month! I’ve wanted to reorder but I have no idea when it will be back online.

any idea what happened to their website or if I can order over the phone? I can’t find a phone number for them.
