    montreal local fish stores?

    I'm in Montreal (downtown) till tomorrow and wanted to check out any good LFS in the area.

    Are there any close by? I do have a car, so please let me know. If you have the addresses as well that would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    Last weekend I did a coral/fish run to EVERYWHERE IN MONTREAL/LAVAL
    (except treasures, i didnt know about it)

    If you are coming from downtown and want to spend the day, try this route

    Octopus on papineau, Worldfish on jean talon, hit up Reefsolution taking the 15north to laval, from there you can start heading west on marcel laurin and a nature pet center will be in a strp mall (big new opening sign), down the street there is a place called animal expert in another mall (pretty good), heading west west you can hit nature pet center st dorathee with is next to the 13 in a big marican style strip mall. Head south back to montreal and take the 40 west to visit big als, more west nature pet center pointe claire, take the 20 going back downtown, but pass by lasalle and visit their store on newman, if you want you can end it all by going to decarie and see aquatropical on ferrier.

    But like I said, I have been everywhere last week.
    **Octopus - corals are ok, fish are eh
    ##Worldfish - nothing new, not much either
    **Reefsolution - some nice stuff, but not as stocked as it was before
    Nature st martin - not much
    #*Animal Expert - a few things
    Aquatropical laval - nothing great, small small selection
    **Nature st dorathee - Decent supply
    ##**Big als - just got a coral order on monday, still fully stocked
    ##Nature pointe claire - good fish selection, corals are dull
    **Nature lasalle - decent corals, not too much variety, same as fish
    Aquatropical decarie -beh not much corals or fish

    ** I would recommend if you want to see coral
    ## I would recommend if ypu want to see fish
