Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College
6100 Leslie Street, Toronto (south of Steeles Ave.)

According to Anthony Calfo, “ He has a greater knowledge of the inner workings of the aquarium business than perhaps anyone. From retailer to reef club and from manufacturer to consumer, Steven is a champion for the greater good.”

Steven is well known in the aquarium industry for staunch consumer advocacy and organizational consultations. He has worked at almost every link in the chain of custody for marine ornamentals; from retail and custom design installations to wholesale and manufacturer representation. He has published over 40 pertinent articles and lectured more than 50 times to national conferences and hobby clubs across the USA. Few people have the extraordinary perspective of Steven on the handling of aquarium products (livestock and drygoods alike) from source to consumer. This unique gamut of real world experience makes Steven an invaluable resource to manufacturers, retailers and consumers alike.

should be a fun event :)

always interested in thinking about greenhouse coral propagation after seeing one in Michigan ... but I think at least for Toronto our electricity cost is too high for that.

I am sure that all of us across Canada out side of the GTA would appreciate hearing what Steve has to say. Anything you can communicate to us would be appreciated.

Tropicorium by any chance? I visited them some ten years ago and it was impressive back THEN. I can only imagine what it's like nowadays..

Yes, Tony, it's Trop, I think they are still pretty much the largest in Michigan , it's great for those guys that can build a greenhouse on their farm-land and do both the home/business thing together. Last I research, I think there are 3 of these greenhouses operating in the US.

Anthony Calfo and Steve Pro both have one, but I don't think theirs are on the top 3 list, I will ask him when he come over.

Sounds like an amazing discussion. If it ends up being recorded and stuck up on youtube, or somewhere else, I'd love to see it.
