I have been to Aquarium West on a few occasions, but only if I'm passing it. The one thing they have that I like is the Pfertz line (though, it has gone up in price).
I find the store very neat and organized, but the prices are rediculous. I think they are overpriced, but are reflective of their demographic location (Kitsilano).
My favourite place in Vancouver is Aprils Aquarium. You can't beat her prices, or her generousity.
If you want 10 fish, she scoops out at least ten, then whatever else is in the net, she just goes "well, just in case, you can have these guys".
RCS, Cardinals, Rummynose, etc, are all only $2. Amano shrimp are the same price, unless they are jumbo, which means they are $3.
Celestial Pearl Danios, $4. Boraras Merah, $2. Like, its unreal.
I do like Aquariums west though, as it is a very clean and upkept store, and the service has been good the few times I've gone in- it's just their prices reflect their location.
