Now there's really just 3 and a half. It's kind of sad but it is what it is.
We are seeing it down here in Lethbridge as well. There used to be 3.5 stores and now we are down to half a store that's over pricing sick fish.

I wish the hobby would bounce back to its former days but I don't see it happening. We have a pretty strong community here that's SCREAMING for supplies, healthy livestock at market value. If someone was opening a store this would be a great market.

Nice. Kinda jealous, we don't have such lucky or luxury here in Calgary It's probably because Canada hates us. I can't blame them

I used to rely on Calgary for having a good selection of fish stores. Edmonton, well not so much. Now I would say Calgary local reefers… although some have priced up as if they are @candy

I actually ordered some stuff from CuddledCorals a few weeks back. It was amazing! Everything turned out great. This was the first online coral order I had done in over 5 years? These vendors have definitely stepped up their game since the last time I ordered stuff.

Oh well that’s good to here! Went by their store but they didn’t have very many SPS to choose from.

YOu're right they didn't seem to have a tonne of branching SPS. I grabbed a bunch of encrusting SPS (monti's, etc).
