If you ever ship USA to Canada, make sure when you fill out the paperwork saying what the box conatins that you say its a gift with the value of less than $10 or the person on the canadian end will have to pay customs fees, which can be upwards of $50.

Mark the package as "Used Aquarium Products".. Technically it's not a lie..

Being that the product is used, it's exempt from most fees, with the exception of GST coming into Canada on the value marked (make this 1$ and gift and these may be avoided aswell)..
120 Gal SW, 150lbs Prem. Fiji, 23Gal Sump, 2x250w 15K MH, 4x65w Actinic
3 x Halichoeres Chrysus (1 surfed), 3 x Nemateleotris magnifica, 1 x Centropyge bicolor, 11 x Scarlet Hermits, 6 x Zebra Hermits, 40 x Astrea Snails, 6 x Nassarius Snails, 3 x Cerith Snails
