The demand is still there but right now, who in their right minds will open a reef store in the GTA during these times. You need $$$$$$ and the right ppl to work key positions.

Interestingly someone just opened Exotic Aquarium World in Mississauga and Aquarium Depot is going to open its third store in the East end!

Ya AK is opening a shop up in whitby! Super exciting. Not much action going on at the actual store yet but parking lot got repaved and building refaced. Location is just off the 401

Saltwater or both. Although I have never been there, I had followed them on Facebook when they sold a lot of fish with good price out of their basement.

Can someone bring me up to speed? What happened in the last 2-3 years? My tank has been in bad shape fighting dinos, so I lost interest and never bought anything new in that time. Now all corals/fish are 2-3x the price! Has wholesale prices gone up? Thought the indo ban was lifted?

Or am I a grumpy old man reminiscing about the good ol days...

Because of the Covid-19, flight charges are very expensive results in high price for corals and fish.

Really? Another thing to blame on covid. I hope prices don't stay inflated after things get back to normal.
