I'm curious about what fellow Canadians consider the best coral and fish stores in Canada?
Why?
Online?
Local?

So far, mine would have to be FragBox, online for me, great delivery and packaging. I've only ordered inverts from them so far, but I can just imagine the fish delivery will be the same.

Of subject. Anyone up there ever see any red arowanas? That’s a dream fresh water fish! Impossible to get here in Oregon.

I'm relatively local to Fragbox and find them to be pretty pricey to be honest. A few of the Big Al's locally usually have the same inverts at half the cost.

I have ordered from ND aquaculture and Mitchell is fantastic. Corals are great, excellent packaging and shipping. I'll be placing another order with them in a few months when I'm ready for some new fish.

I went there about 2 years ago in the Toronto area... Went to a few LFS and saw some small red ones. They were pricey though anywhere from $2-3K. Saw some different variants too that weren't red but would look amazing when fully grown that were in the $1-2K range.

I just did another order from @Fragbox Corals
I have ordered from Candy corals, Aquarium Depot and Reef Supplies.
All have been great, easy service. They all had fast delivery and great packaging, whether it's live or dry orders.

I'm actually happy lately with the selections available in Canada.

Have ordered for shipping from Fragbox and gone to store to p/u . A bit pricey imo, but always good quality stuff. NAFB in Scarborough, is a LFS I frequent, friendly and knowledgeable staff family run. I will do the Big Als, Scarborough, Newmarket , Thornhill, and Whitby locations as well. I prefer Scarborough location on the whole, more variety and I can price haggle with the fish room manager there, he's a good young fella....

Is there a LFS for you in Thunder Bay?

I haven’t seen candy corals in a few years . But at the time thought his were a little on the higher end and pricy .
