    Going to be in TO..

    Staying downtown..
    Will have a little bit of room in our luggage and are looking to bring home some aquarium stuff as the prices up here suck. Anyone recommend a good aquarium store in the area and/or have anything they're willing to part with? :b16:

    Use a cooler with some hot packs.

    Luggage wont provide enough warmth.

    Thanks Steve!

    Was only thinking equipment but maybe I will get some livestock (more liverock, cleaning crew). We'll be flying from TO to Van to Whitehorse in one day, do you think livestock would be ok being housed in the cooler for 24 hours?

    We'll have access to transit and could rent a car but we really don't want to drive in town.. I'm a bush bunny remember? Do you think livestock will be ok for 24 hours housed in cooler? I could do a small water change w/ bottled water in a hotel room if need be..
    We'll be staying at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown..we leave TO around noon EST and arrive home shortly after 12:00pm PST..

    i wouldn't transport the livestock, to many chances for a mix up ( lost luggage, lay overs due to weather, etc.... ) though i wouldn't hesitate to wrap up some LR for the price you have to pay up in the GWN.

    i'll check around for some stores near your hotel ( or within subway or street car range )
