Hey guys, Calgarian here. I'm not entirley new to this site but have not been online here in a number of years. I have a 90 Gal FW tank.
The LFS I like here in Calgary are Big Als, Riverfront and Pisces. I have gotten most of my fist this time around from Pisces, I got my tank from Big Als and I got my royal pleco from a small store in Canmore.

90gal African cichlid tank, with 2 pictus cats, 4 clown loaches, 1 common pleco, 1 rainbow shark and a mixture of cichlids.

70gal mixed tank. There are tetras, African butterfly, striped pictus, 1 bristle nose pleco, 1 bushy nose pleco and 1 tiger pleco, 3 yo-yo loaches, 1 synodontis catfish, and 1 fire eel which is only about 5" long.

And lastly out 30gal hexagon which is our true community tank. Columbian tetras, neons, striped danios, glo light tetras, pair of angels and 1 gold nugget pleco. That is my favorite fish. It is so bright and colorful.

Anyway, we have a variety of places to go in Calgary but the best and most knowledgable is Big Al's. Pisces is expensive and the staff are just ok. There is Gold's which is in forest lawn and they have some specialty cichlids and plecos.

Anyway, quick question.

Know any places in Canada or Alberta that sells RENA filter parts?? Ours broke and we had to order from the US. The shipping was more than the part. Just wondering what you guys do for stuff like that.

Pisces Pet Emporium in Calgary has a repair counter area in thier fish room and that's where I've gotten parts for my RENA Filter.

Golds is an Aquarium store located in SE Calgary, specialize in mostly freshwater fish but they do have some very nice SW fish. Personally I have been in the store many times and only bought twice. I never find great deals there and its far from my house. Some of the fish look great sometimes they look terrible. Same with the coral sometimes its great sometimes its not. I dunno its overrated IMO. Hardware and food/chemical selection is great tho, they have lots of things and the prices are decent.

If your doing SW I recommend Concept Aquariums Home page

Reef Wonderland
Reef Wonderland | Welcome

And Ocean creations on 16th ave NW

Oh SW is in the future but I highly doubt anything would enjoy the 3 hour drive north

You would be surprised, I have purchased a lot of things from Edmonton and driven them back to Calgary, even bought a few things in Lethbridge and transported them. Just know how to transport things and you will be fine

You're a brave soul magma. I get nervous with just a 30 or 45 min drive from the LFS back home with new additions. The dash between a preheated vehicle and the LFS at -25 is always my biggest concern. I know it's a short period of time just always makes me nervous
