Aquariums West - Vancouver LFS

Aquariums West is by far my favourite LFS.

Their tanks are always clean, their fish usually healthy (things happen, and if they see the fish are ill, they will quarantine the tank).

And they have the best selection of plants I've ever seen. Healthy plants. There are times when they have just a few in stock (they sometimes have problems with their suppliers not delivering on time). They have plants from Tropica, as well as bunched plants from other suppliers. Usually their plant display tanks are completely full (they have four large tanks specifically for plants), and their fish tanks are also planted. All plants are for sale.

Unfortunately, they don't always get around to labelling their plants and fish. And depending on who you ask, they may not be able to tell you much about them. But if you can get the woman who owns the place to sit still for a minute, she can answer all your questions. They also have plant books lying about for reference.

The store is located on Burrard just south of Davie. Keep in mind that this is a prime downtown location, so expect prices to be a bit higher than what you might find elsewhere.
