Hello I'm new to the province and only know of j and l for fish stores that sell coral. Are there any others around Richmond, Vancouver or Burnaby worth going to? I'm also looking for colourful mushrooms, rics and green polyp toadstool if anyone has any for sale. Thx. I live in downtown van

I would avoid buying coral from stores and just get frags off this board - cheaper and much better quality.

Oceanic Corals is my favorite by far. Its The guys that work there are awesome and you can get some awesome frags. Every frag I have purchased there is thriving. Its in Aldergrove so its a bit of a journey but worth it a few times a year...

J&L is like the costco of saltwater. If you need something they'll have it. I've had a few dud corals from there but their fish seem really healthy. Its a good place for equipment...

Island pets in Burnaby used to have a lot of fish and coral but now just a bit. The richmond store has more coral but I was there last weekend and the fish stock is really low for some reason.

Aquariums West in downtown vancouver is great. Really friendly and knowledgable staff. They are getting in more coral in October from what they tell me. For equipment its hit and miss, they carry a lot of stuff but really seem to specialize in fresh water. I've purchased a lot of coral and a few fish from there and everything has turned out great. I like that its mom and pop rather than the J&L vibe myself.

King Eds pets is an adventure in itself. The saltwater section is in the basement and sorta weird...lol There is an older guy who works down there and you wonder if he's ever let out or if he's some sort of saltwater prisoner? One thing I noticed there is the prices seemed really reasonable. Coral was cheaper there so I bought more...:)
