Excellent store. Mike really works hard on making his store stay in top shape. All the fish i have seen in that store are excellent quality.

Always has some sort of great deal on.

Mike is great when it comes to cichlids! Probably one of the most knowledgeable in the city with regards to that species.

Never been to the store, but I have met Mike and he is great and very passionate about his hobby and his business, which is good to see.

I have heard nothing but good things about his store !!

Another good store. Mike is a great guy. Wish he was closer but I'm looking forward to visiting the farm!

Mike's store gets a good reputation for being a cichlid store... also sells some FW community fish that are not as common in other LFS.

Deals in cash only, usually if you buy many fish at once he will cut you a deal.

Fish I bought from him... sometimes good deal, sometimes a fair deal.

6 corydoras aeneus (3 for $5 during Boxing week), sawbwa resplendens (40-50+ for $46), Nematobrycon palmeri (8 for $10), hemigrammus bleheri (8 for $20). All of them still bought healthy and still alive and thriving in my tanks.

Good LFS, super clean store, super clean tanks, well-maintained, knowledgeable guy! Highly recommended.

Oh yeah forgot to mention. He recently invested into a super fish farm somewhere in Guelph. And supposedly opening another store sometime. So he will cover basically most of GTA.

Ya this store has progressively gotten better and better since opening.

Its a good source for some nice good quality cichlids, particularly the SA/CA which he somehow manages to get some extremely nice examples of. He's had some of the nicest TRUE wild angels ive ever seen
