Hey,

I am going to Toronto in a couple of weeks and am wondering what stores are nearby that I should check out? I have no vehicle so it would have to be near public trans...

Thanks!

Unfortunately there are only a few LFSs that are readily accessible via Toronto Transit (TTC) in terms bus frequency and convenience. It's also worth noting that several of the more popular and exotic stores (among reefers and marine focused hobbyists) would require 2 or even 3 transfers across different regions.

The most readily accessible via TTC are a few big box stores (Aquarium Services - Big Al's) and North American Fish Breeders (NAFB). NAFB is worth the trip since it is accessible and if they have recently received a shipment.

Some of the others worth noting that require a car or transfers are:

Rivers 2 Oceans (R2O) in Mississauga*
Reef Raft in Mississauga*
Aquatic Kingdom in Mississauga*
*These three stores are along the same street

Sea U Marine (SUM) in Markham
Coral Reef Shop in Burlington
Advanced Reef Aquatics in Milton

Good luck and safe travels. Cheers.
