The only ones I have been to recently are Newmarket and Whitby .
They seam to be allot more knowledgable and friendly , easier to talk to in Newmarket .

The one in Hamilton is really awesome. Even if you live too far to go there, if you need advice on any aquarium related inquiries, their staff are super helpful over the phone

I only go there to look around, expensive and don't like the idea of buy what we sale, good luck trying to get what you want. Buy a pump for $100 than buy replacement impeller for $47

I have experiences exactly this .
Bought a coral life skimmer .
The needle where and ceramic shaft are more than the skimmer cost .
Anyone know of a higher quality place to buy corals and fish ?

This is why I'm leaning towards cheap Chinese pumps, if they beak and they will break just like the major big brands its only cost fraction of the major big brand even if you replace it every year.
My main pump is a Jebo4500 $139, you could buy probably a tiny fountain circulation pump if is made by Iwaki or Tunze for that price.

I don't know where you are located but I found a nice place in Markham .
Sea u marine .
Their fish and corals are very cheap ,brighter colors possibly healthier .
More knowledgable .
