retail stores in Ont/Mich for corals, fish, anemones etc.

Can someone help me! I live in Ireland and will be travelling to see me Son in Windsor, Ontario this October. It's difficult to obtain certain coral species etc here in Ireland, I would like the opportunity on my visit to pick up some corals etc to bring back to Ireland. Which are the best places to shop for Corals/fish/anemones between Windsor to Toronto and Windsor-Detroit area? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Josh (from Dublin)

Oi!! I don't know about Detroit, but about 3 hours west in Grand Rapids, MI we have a couple places with a nice selection of sw stuff. If you can make it this way, drop me a pm and I'll hook you up with all the appropriate info.

WELCOME TO AA!

The first thing I would do would be to check up your customs laws on importing live animals into ireland. At a minimum I would suspect you would have to place them in a federal quarantine for a given amount of time if they let you keep them at all.

IMO, don't shrug it off as a "minor infraction". I don't know what the customs laws are in Ireland, but in a recent incident in Australia a woman was cought with some fish and was facing over $80,000 in fines.

unless, of course, that would make me an accessory to fish smuggling...
