I only ever visited Blue World before the ownership change and it sounds a lot better than before. When I was first learning I went into Safari pets and they were really condescending and a visit a few months later when I knew more they were just rude even when I knew what I wanted.

(Luckily I live in Burnaby now and J&L is in my back yard. :wink:)

I have just been in there since the new owners took over. But my experience with them has been great. the whole crew always willing to go above and beyond. PLus if you go on a saturday around 11 i think they give you a free tim horton's coffee and donuts.

Progressive is the same way. Huge retail space and lots and lots of goodies both coral and supplies. Ronnie , Gareth, and jesse do a really good job.

Back to the op. You pretty much can't go wrong with any of the shops here. Just depends on what kind of stuff you are after.

There is a haunted castle can't remember the name but that was cool and Butchart gardens although it costs like almost $100 for 2 adults.

Yeah I would agree with progressive and Blue world they are both amazing. But so far the best frags I have ever bought have been from borderjumper. Great stuff and amazing colors.
