What's good in Ottawa?

Post by Zedex on Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:44 am

Hi all.

I've spontaneously decided to take a couple' days trip up to Ottawa this week. Among the rest of my "to-do" list, I'd love to check out any worthwhile aquarium stores. Any suggestions? Petsmart doesn't count. Wink

Hey that is great Zedex especially now during the 150 celebrations. I have no recommendations for you on aquarium related must-dos but I am envious. Ottawa is a great city, enjoy the time.

Sadly in Ottawa our pickings are small, the top 3 stores i would suggest are Critter Jungle it`s known for having the odd specie not common in the hobby, Bi g Al`s east end and La Niche et Moi

I will caution you the Montreal & Toronto are stores trumps us for the most part.

Well I didn't get a chance to squeeze in any fish store visits today. Maybe tomorrow after the last University tour before I head out. Thanks for the list!

I ended up checking out the critter jungle in Carling. It was a nice store, but nothing over the top. The shrimp selection was a nice change. I ended up leaving with a nice piece of wood to use in my next scape.

Would love to see the new piece of wood you picked up.

I'll put up a photo once it is out of the bucket it is soaking in and is in the tank. It floats as of now.
