Talking hello from calgary

Hey guys!
hope you are all doing well!

I have a question to start this all of with, does anyone know of aquarium service, where they come to your house and clean your tank etc. for you? I have had an aquarium for years, I started a new business and I don't have time to clean it, but I still want my fishes!
any ideas? thank you guys so much

Natalie:p

Welcome to the site!
You can check with your LFS and see if they know of anyone. You might also look into a local fish club for someone.

Welcome to AA! I am sure with all the fish lover's in Calgary that if there isn't a service there will be someone that would be able to be contracted to do it. Check with the Calgary aquarium society or check on their local forum to see who they recommend.

I must live in the most fish-hating (or at least non fish-loving) place on Earth
I feel like I'm the only one in the city who's even heard of this hobby.

Good luck!

Ha, I felt the same way until I came here and saw how active the Steel City regional forum was.

Hi Natalie, I love calgary and had an awesome time both times I went there. I only flew in to get to Banff, but everybody in the city was really cool (with the people in the mountains being even cooler of course, ).

Good luck finding a service: I'd try google or your LFS.

Welcome to the site! It's the best aquarium forum I have found so far. People here are very friendly, knowledgable and responsive. Hope you find the service you are looking for!

LFS=local fish store
