Where to buy

Hey im new at the salt water tank thing. I live in Prince Edward island, Canada. There is only one store here that carries salt water fish, from all the online stores i see all the fish are over priced here. I was just wondering if there are anywhere to buy onine that ships to Canada.

It probably won't be worth it. To ship fish you have to have them overnighted, or at least 2-day air, to insure they arrive healthy. So the shipping costs alone are outrageous, not to mention like you said, most of the online store's fish are overpriced to begin with.

Yeah i stumbled across this shortly after i posted that. Seems alrght id say you would have to actually have to order something to see how much it would cost. Work a try cuz i just paid 27 dollars for a yellow tailed damsel when there its 4.50 or something.
oh is there any good lfs in hali not to far away, i heard one just shut down there somewhere but must be a bunch around
