I hope Mike set that dumbass straight.

Wait til the peacocks they bought from these clowns at Lakeshore Aquarium lose all their colour in 2-3 months because the steroids have worn of, rotflmao!! Then they will feel stupid for those comments to Mike.

A friend just left my place and said he popped into Lakeshore Aquarium today. Owner admitted the 2-3" Peacocks in many of the tanks are from Taiwan and are juiced with hormones.

We knew that already. The fact that the owner admitted it is further evidence of his lack of common sense.

There should be some sort of LFS standards comission that goes around and certifies LFS in the GTA. If you don't make the cut, you get shut down.

When i was at lakeshore/Mississauga aquarium I asked to see a fish priced at 20 dollars he told his customer to go help me? Talk about lazy! he would not even help he told his customer to "GO see what he want" The fish was priced at 20 I wanted it. I doubled checked the species. The customer agreed on the species and price listed. Then the owner came. Said yes that is the species listed but the price is wrong the price is double! So i just walked away. Worst experience ever.

There is a lot of drama going on about stuff on their facebook review page some unhappy customers that only went in once.

THe thing is they have AMAZING DISCUSS AND FLOWERHORNS! The vendor for those is here if they can go direct to vendor or find another place that carries the same quality. HIs discuss is what i think makes him stay in business.


Can we put the title of this thread to Mississauga aquarium?

"he told his customer to go help me?"
...mmmm are you sure it wasnt his staff? He has plained clothed staff yknow lol.

Been to mississauga aquarium a few times, the younger guy is helpful (im assuming hes the son of the owner) and honest, refused to sell fish that i wanted due to illness he suspected

And every store has negative reviews on facebook, some legit but most are just miserable people looking to vent their misplaced anger.
