Hey Guys & Gals I'm coming out there for a visit.... I'm going to help my brother setup a SW tank (his first tank)... but the problem we don't know where any of the good local fish stores, my brother he's located in cobble hill. We are looking to setup a 30 gallon from scratch... we'll need LR, powerhead, hhhhmmm lighting possibly-I'm going to check some local connections for the hardware but the LR will have be local...Please point us in the right direction.


thanks,

Eric

The two stores on the island I frequent. To the north In Duncan you have Island Pet Zone, it's in a little plaza on the corner of York and Beverly, right behing McDonalds.

In Victoria is Safari Pets and Aquatics.. Cloverdale and Blanshard in the same plaza as the Futureshop.

HTH! :mrgreen:

Get your rock at IPZ for sure best price on the island.

Safari is good but youll pay for it.

Theres Creatures great and small at the corner of Bay Blanshard.
They seem to get a little more of the fish / invert selection you see on the mainland. Need a "creature card" to get a discount though.

Lastley theres Hillside aquatics on the corner of hillside and quadra.
I'll just say "no comment" and leave it at that.

is it cheaper there or better rock? I have always though Safari had a awsome selection of rock.

7$ pound for indo.
Lots of macro and life when it first came in. Even after a month and a half I picked some up not much macro left but i got some hitchhiker corals. A few diffrent things that ive never seen before. One resembles a cup coral another has 5 plate type pieces fanned out, (no visable flesh though), Ive no idea what it is never seen anything like it.
The rocks nice shape Ill have to get off my lazy ass and get some pics of the new aquascaping.
