ATTN Canadians: Aquatic mail-orders, Cheaper than Big Al's!!

I found this great website for canadian mail-orders:
http://www.petsandponds.com/securestore/
I do not run this store or know the people that run it, I just stumbled upon it and needed to spread the news. Prices are 10-20% lowers than at big al's, and shipping is only $6 per order, no matter how large.

I'm not too sure on that brand of strip light but if its decent quality than it would be a deal. Big al's sells the same thing /w the tubes for 160. Are you doing plants?

I just placed an order for a ebo and other stuff.

All my tanks have been lightly planted.. Long term I might go all out with my 58 Gallon instead of having 10 tanks if I get the itch for something more I will plant the thing until you can't see fish.. haha. I would have started off right away with heavily planted but I could afford to do light and C02 properly so I am waiting until funds allow me.

If anyone orders from here let me know what your experience is with them..

Did anyone order from them?

I am going to move this to the Cadadian forum so people can find it easier.

Sadly, only at Pisces during sales....if Dennis carried Eheim, they would be cheap as dirt there.
