i drove there from hamilton and IMO it was not worth it, its a flower shop with maybe 10-15 tanks that looks grimey as hell also the guy just makes up his prices when you ask, the sizes of fishes he advertises on kijiji is very generous to say the least

I'll second tchoke's review though I didn't find it that grimey.

Are his posted prices accurate and does he stock what he advertises?

I know people that have gone and were very disappointed. Calvus in ad are $15 and become $40 when you get there. The ones for $15 are tiny.

I called once to ask about aulonocara and all they knew was they had red ones and blue ones. They don't know very much at all regarding species.

I emailed asking about an ad for a Red Empress and 10 minutes later, same ad was changed to a beta, lol.

I've never been but I sold some fish via pricenetwork or gtaa and posted pictures/videos of the fish that I was selling. Couple of days later, I saw an ad on kijiji by lakeshore aquarium with the exact same pic/video that I had captured of my tank, hahahaa...

I am curious whether the person I sold the fish to is the owner of lakeshore aquarium.
