Canadians Unite! Haha

Hey!
I've noticed there aren't too many Canadians on here, or none that I've really run into. So I thought it would be fun to start a Canadian Thread

I'm from Ontario, whoot! And had a few questions about what pet stores you shop at for your fish, and fishy stuff. As I am looking into getting a 2-5 Gal tank for my new guys (eventually, currently job hunting as I just graduated from college). Any suggestions on tanks and where to get one?

There are quite a few of us... if you know where to search!

Oh.. and big als for a heater and compare their tank prices with petsmart! I've seen them have a 5.5gal on sale for about 15. (just the tank). Kijiji is also your friend. Got a full 10 gal, heater, filter, stand, 25$ Just had to pick it up.

Why thank you! I never seem to think of Big Als... probably because there isn't one in my city. I shall have to make a trip there!

Yay Canada!

So far I've used the local pet shops, Pet Valu and Paulmac's. Going to try Petsmart for my new setups (when I have the money) and maybe Big Als! So stoked to own Betta's again, and actually care for them properly

Hey all, from alberta here. The stores I like are big al's,pisces pet emporium and petland. Of all the three I am just amazed at big als, they're betta selection is always breath taking. I was in there one day and a girl who worked there came over and said she noticed I had been looking at the bettas for a while. She asked if she coudl help at all and I said I you could help by getting everthing I need to take all these bettas home. I was so mesmorized. Is anyone else her in alberta.

thankfully we have a LFS for lots of other supplies. And a pets unlim can't tell the difference between a male and a female and have no clue what a plakat is.

Oh, and a LPS that tries to order in "tri-colour" bettas
