Question Trusted LFS

Hey everyone.

I'm losing some fish to old age and I'm looking to restock my tank with a large group of rummy nose tetras. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some trusted LFS stores in the GTA I could get these fish from. I will be quarantining before adding them to the display tank but I want to minimize chance of disease as much as possible.

The only store I've ever bought livestock from is Big Al's Scarborough. Never had issues with them in the past but it's been 4 years since I last bought fish and I don't know if things have changed since then.

Finactics is a great store, very high quality stock, good selection if fish, great staff to help you out. Cheers.

Thanks for the recommendation! They have a ton of good reviews.

I gave them a call as well and they have a have over a hundred rummy nose tetras available. They also said the current stock has been there for over a month so I think that's a good sign that they're healthy.

Will definitely be considering them, gonna be setting up my quarantine tank this weekend.

I've had a lot of success with both Angelfins and Tails and Scales.

Mike at Finatics is a good egg and will personally vouch for him as I've known and worked with him since the early 90's.

Don't mention me by name as he'll charge you triple just to bust your chops ROLMFAO!

I would also highly recommend Finatics, however it's my understanding he specializes in Cichlids. Would he have Rummynose Tetras?

Yes he does specialize in Chichlids,however, he also has Killifish, guppies, plants, etc.etc. Cheers. It sounds like you have NEVER gone to Finactics. Too bad. So sad.

Are you referring to me? Yes, I've been to his store, or I wouldn't know he specializes in cichlids. I did NOT say he doesn't sell anything else. Please don't jump to conclusions about other posters.
