It is called "Sil 7", but as far as I am aware, the shop is not open on Sundays. If you like, I could possibly pick up a bag and bring it to the auction for you.

Consolidated Compressor
9516 40 Street Southeast, Calgary, AB T2C2P3

That saulosi I got from you at the TFBA auction is indeed a male ...as you suspected. He has settled in well but in far too interested in my yellow labs
If he is not getting along well in your tank, bring him up to the auction. You can put him in my lot (just let me know, so I can adjust my speadsheet).

I will be in Calgary on Sat so I can pick the sand up...but thanks for the offer. My sister lives in the SE...but I suppose that doesn't necessarily mean she is close to this place. I just hope I will be able to find it...I am not the best at finding my way around the city. I also have some pheasant feathers for you. I hope I remember to bring them.

I am bringing a few plants up...but no livestock. They wouldn't likely survive in a bag for 30 hours or so.
That Saulosi is causing quite a stir in my tank. He has bred with a yellow lab I am pretty sure. Tonight he is very busy digging a hole or something and shimmying around my other labs. He sure is interesting to watch...but I have to do something about him!!!

You can drop him off at our place. We can find room for him for one night.

Great, thanks. And I just remembered, the old 'sil7' has been renamed 'sil4' (just checked the bag I bought last month). The shop is pretty easy to find, especially with a map....head south on Barlow past pick-your-part, left at the first set of lights, first right after that, and it is about 300 meters down on your left-hand side.

Hey, that is a tempting offer. I am just watching him now...and he has the entire tank inhabitants staying over to one side. He has dug out a big pit on his own half of the tank and is trying to get it on with another yellow lab. I believe one yellow lab is already holding from him. I am going to try and catch him. How can I contact you if I manage to catch him and need to take you up on your offer?

Headed down to Riverfront at 5pm this evening (with the CAS treasurer) to check out livestock in preparation for tomorrow's 2for1 sale.
