Every time I've been there I've gotten great service and accurate information. Flavio has some of the best products and they are definitely quality. His livestock are amazing as well as being vary healthy. I would definitely go and visit his store again.

Agreed. Flavio is very down to earth and approachable. The store is bright and spacious with in-house capability of customizing your system from DT to Sump/Refugium. On my last visit (2 weeks ago) - there were some ridiculously puffy Scolys and other LPS.

Flavio runs a great operation out here in Milton. I've been dealing with him for a couple of years now and he is top notch in my books - just wish he was a bit closer :-)

I popped in to visit. Super friendly owner, great looking corals and leathers, and every beautiful Reefy thing you might want, and nifty ceramic faux-coral for the back of your tank. I only WISH I had a Reef tank though...

Flavio has helped my tank through thick and thin; his knowledge and attitude are far better than other reef stores in the Halton region.

He's not pushy nor will try to sell you something you don't need. He only carries products he uses and trusts and a great place to find high end equipment at low end prices. He also gets all of the vertex refurbs (skimmers, moceans, Puratek RODI units) and sells then at unbelievable prices.

I've been a customer since he opened when he was only 30% marine and called Milton aquarium (do to demand in the area the store is now 100% marine stock however he still does carry FW dry goods items).

The store is getting better everyday, he just completed a tank upgrade last month for new stock and he is currently cycling an SPS display tank to house colonies and frags.

Fish are always healthy and as are the corals.

Great shop and highly recommended.
