So we are heading to the island on the 29 of the month for New Years. And since Iam going to be there for 10 days I wanted to check out the local Fish shops. We are going to be in Duncan, but have a car out there so we would be able to travel between Victoria and Naniamo.

So if you know of a good store to hit up please post the address and name.

Thanks L

Hi Again ,
Scott at Island Pet Zone ........Very Knowledgable and friendly advice and good deals !
You should not miss Japarto's tank on the counter at Safari.....stunning , as well as the large displays.
Cora at Hillside usually has a comprehensive display.
Creatures is worth a visit usually has a nice selection of shrimp and a lot of live rock.

I will be in the market for some live rock when we are out there.

I didint get a chance to swing by Safari pets this past summer when we were out but have seen his tanks before. I actualy flew live rock back a couple years ago from both Island pet zone and Safari. Customs didint know what to make of it.

I had more rocks and water in my carry-on then anything else.

I cant wait to get back out there. Thank you to every one for the info.

Oh one more thing are there any get togethers that I might be able to sneek into durring that week, like fish shows or auctions?
