The Hamilton store is fine for dry goods and setups and staff is quite helpful but their livestock is brutal inmo. Purple tangs turned white with ich and on the verge of starvation, cyno covered main display,dead bta's and their corals YIKES,no thanks... just awful. The Oakville store is by far the best imo but I usually buy from Alternative in Burlington they have fantastic stuff.

I agree about the newmarket store. For the most part its got a good selection (at least compared to the alternatives in the area) but i no longer ask for advice there and research my purchase before i get there. There are a few good employees but most of them are not aquarists but try to answer anyway (hence how i learned not to ask them lol....)

I have not found any place better than the Oakville store so far, but I am open to suggestions.
