With Christmas right around the corner, we’re all scrambling to get those last minute gifts for our loved ones. Some go straight to the local fish store to get their goods, but others try to take advantage of online deals and shop the internet stores. Either choice is great, obviously, but when shopping the web stores so close to Christmas, be sure to get your purchases and spring for the faster shipping methods to make sure everything gets in on time. Also, shoot the store owners an email and double check to see when the item could be shipped. Some online stores have cutoff times for same day shipping, and buying an item close to the weekend could delay the shipment all the way until the following Tuesday. So, pre-plan your shopping experience and hopefully there will be some aquarium related items under the tree.
