Hello from Canada


Hi all I just joined the forum yesterday. There sure is alot of really nice tanks here. I have been enjoying reading alot of the tank journals and other informative posts here.

I started a thread that was supposed to be a sort of introduction but it ended up reading more like a tank journal. Please feel free to come check out my thread and please offer up any knowledge. Always happy to learn from knowledgable members or just feel free to check it out and let me know what you think so far.

Looking forward to getting to know the members here

Trevor

Hello and thanks!

Glad to see fellow members from Canada. Good call on the thread link, I am not the most forum savvy person, but I am learning. I may be contacting you in the future to get some links for plant vendors in Canada.

Bah, let's be proactive
www.theplantguy.org in Winnipeg. Not tried yet, but heard good things about him.
www.angelfins.ca, somewhere in Ontario. Has plants and equipment. Ordered a few times, satisfied.

Hello fellow Canadian!
I have ordered from both the Plant Guy and Angelfins for plants. Both were satisfactory and pricing seemed ok.
However, the best plants that I have received on line were from Aquariums West in Vancouver. A little pricier but there is a discount, which often makes up for the shipping. I have ordered twice, both times plants were shipped next day. All were Tropica brand.
I have also been eyeballing Shrimp Fever for plants but not ordered from them yet.
PS - I like Angelfins for the equipment choices, ordered twice now

Another Canadian here I have bought plants from theplantguy.org and Aquariums West, both are great! If you are looking for equipment, www.jlaquatics.com probably has the best prices in Canada.

Canucks are coming out of the wood work! Welcome to the forum.
Another good equipment place is Pets and Ponds.

WoW Thanks everyone for the links!

I have ordered from J&l as well as pets and ponds but have yet to order from angelfins which seems more planted tank oriented. I also just purchased a set of lily pipes from the plant guy fairly cheap on clearance I believe.

You look as though you are no stranger to discus yourself. Love the fish in your avatar.
