Use those heat packs you snap in the middle, place them in a cooler with the fish bags, make sure the fish/coral have lots of air in the bag and your good to go its easy, no different than shipping them across the country or even to the local fish stores.

I just discovered this site the other day and this forum today. Hope there is still some interest here. We have a tank that has sat for some time with water in it and there is yellow and white mold in it. Is the tank salvagable? Thanks.

I think it should still be good, just put boiling water and lots of vinegar and it should kill everything it the tank and clean it eaiser, or use bleach but rinse super well

So my family is doing a big shopping trip to Calgary and I want to go a larger LFS as I don't have any great local ones. I only have time to visit one so which is the best store in Calgary? I'd like to go to either Pisces, riverfront or big Al's as they're in the right area. Any suggestions? I'm mainly interested in FW, specifically interested in buying some driftwood, plants and inverts. Where's best?

Pisces is going to have what you want for sure, big als is hit and miss. I haven't been to riverfront in ages but they do usually have some crazy FW fish.

Thanks for replying. Pisces sounds great then! It's my first tank ever so maybe I'm not really looking for crazy fish. Just classic, healthy common fish is for me, at least till I get more expierence. I think Ill get an Arowana next...just kidding.

Wow! Has this thread ever grown from the first time I started it. It's awesome to see more Albertans out there than just me! I love to see that everyone is discussing local shops and even trading of their personal stock. I can't wait to see how many more Albertan aquarists are out there!
