    I went to TO for a wedding reception, and swung by Oakville this morning before heading back. It was the first time I've ever been there, and would definately stop in again when I'm in the area. He has very nice corals (he mentioned they were just about all Walt Smith), but he keeps them in large vats, and you have to look down in the vats to see them, which isn't as easy as picking stuff from a tank.

    He did have lots of clams, and mentioned that they specialized in them. He even had one that was about the size of a football. I'm not much of a "clam guy" myself though, so I really can't comment on the quality.

    All round good store though, and worth the trip (it is about 40 min from downtown Toronto with no traffic).

    I also met a guy there who had driven from London (he to had never been there before).

    I got a real nice zoo rock.
