Did some research and just wanted to share with this group.
I have no experience ordering from these companies, but here are some possible fish sources in Texas:

Also, looks like only Mozambique tilapia are legal in Texas...
Just an update. I went to Pond King today and picked up about 8 catfish and 6 hybrid Bluegill. They were friendly enough and didn't mind a small order. I was hoping for albino catfish and tilapia but they were out. They had a few dead fish floating in the tanks. They bagged my fish and all were alive when i put them in my tank about an hour later. I have nothing to compare Pond King to, but would give 4 out of 5 stars.
I drove to Overton Fisheries from Waco (about 2 hour drive) and purchased four (4) lbs. of tilapia fingerlings and have had them just over two weeks. They survived the journey back in the oxygenated bag - did just fine in adjusting to tank as well, and they are growing. Overton is very knowledgeable and helpful.
here is one more I have found but I haven't used.
they have a minimum order of 25 fish.
I found a local source for red composting worms in Richland, Tx. They have a link to a nifty DIY worm bin at the bottom of their page.
I have purchased from these guys in the past. Great to work with and close if you live south of San Antonio.
HERRMANNS FISH FARM
4977 County Road 83, Robstown, TX 78380
I have also purchased from:
Kenneth Henneke Fish Hatchery
1267 Country Road, Hallettsville, Texas 77964
I have delt with overton and have had excellent experience with them. Any problems with the fish, they always make good. I would highly recommend them. If you are in the Houston area we also sell Mozambique tilapia. (greenlifeaquaponics.com)
Aquaculture of texas also a very good outfit. This guy knows about everything there is to know about freshwater shrimp. I have been working with him on ways to increase density in raft cultures.
I purchased 25 or so blue catfish fingerlings from Danbury and had a good experience. I'll use them again unless I find somewhere closer...
