Thanks but south surrey is a bit far.
I just wonder why toronto, calgray, Edmonton even Victoria has decent frag stores but no in Vancouver, weird.

Victoria has quality frags? News to me. The lower mainland has plenty of quality and high end frags, they are just in the tanks of guys who are serious coral hoarders.

Blue world aquarium maybe? We used to have few choices besides J&L, like Oceanic corals and Ocean Aquatics for frags, but unfortunately they were both closed.

Wouldn't matter. One was in Delta and the other Aldergrove.

Aldergrove? You could take a flight from YVR to Abbotsford I guess. About 10 mins in the air.

I was in Blue World about 3 weeks ago, and I didn't see one coral worth mentioning.

You're lucky Blue World was even open for you. No such luck for me the time I went there.

Luckily our sponsors here have some incredible pieces. Look at the ones Fragbox just added, and Big Show always has great stuff too.

Theres a really well stocked frag seller in Victoria that deals out of his garage. Maybe thats what he's referring too? But he's not a sponsor on here and I don't want to start anything so thats all I'll say about that.

Frag Garage.

Yeah, that's the one I meant, at least the website looks decent for me.

I am surprise there is no similar stores in Vancouver area, cause the market is HUGE. It's sad that people here need to mail order from other provinces all the time.

I know lots of people here have nice collections of corals, but sometime I just want to go to a LFS to kill time, without making appointments :)

Start a frag garage in Vancouver, anyone?
