I've had things shipped from the states (not just aquarium supplies) and the problem is that they often charge an extra fee for international shipping or simply over-inflate the shipping, plus you have to pay duty and sometimes a brokerage fee (if it comes other than by Post). AND sometimes the item gets held up at customs for a long time.

It's hardly worth it, better to find places like those listed above that ship from within Canada, even if the postage seems higher than US companys charge.

I've been happy with plants from Aquariumplants.com, and with orders from Big Al's, Pets & Ponds and MOPS:Aquarium Supplies Category List
