Online vendors for Canadians - updated 22/06/2013

Hi everyone!

Just figured it might a good idea to make a list of online freshwater fish vendors for Canadians. I know that pickings can be pretty slim up here, our aquarist communities don't seem to be quite as strong as they are in the States and that shipping is murder, but I figured that someone else might be able to benefit from my fruitless searches while I've quested for chili rasboras.

Please feel free to add any sites you know of in the comments, maybe with a few quick details about them, and I'll do my best to keep this list updated.

Here is the current list in no particular order, based on everyone’s input, updated as of 22/06/2013.

Livestock and plants
Angel fish, plants and supplies
