Forums and fish shops
« on: March 27, 2017, 07:55:08 AM »
While I was looking for a fish forum over this last week I was surprised to find that this forum is about the only Australian forum with 2017 posts and there are not many of them even on this site I was hoping to find at least some activity to keep me interested. So come on Guy's and Gal's get into it or you won't have any forums to post to and all of the knowledge will be lost to all of us.
This last weekend I did a run around of the fish shops this side of Melbourne Southern and Eastern suburbs
14 in all I have 4 within about 15 minutes of home. I went to 1 in Keysborough that I used to go to when I had my other tank and I was disappointed to see dirty tanks over stocked aquariums dead fish and general untidiness all throughout the shop.
Fish World In Cheltenham Rd Dandenong is great clean happy looking fish, both fresh and marine, friendly staff top marks for them.
Mentone Aquarium, great range of fish, fresh and marine, plenty of stock helpful staff top mark also. Springvale Aquarium, small shop not much stock but clean and fish look Ok.
Further a field Syndal.
Hi Fin Aquarium good stock plenty of fish and other supplies 4 star.
Blackburn Aquarium still on the net but closed down.
The Aquarium Factory not at the address on the net google search.
Ocean Blue Aquatics not at address on the net google search.
Regency Aquariums not at address on the net google search.
Boronia Aquariums still on the net but closed down
Balwyn Road Aquarium dirty tanks dead fish not worth the travel time yuk.
All round Aquatics,
Top Scale , &
Aquarium x-Purts are all private home so I didn't go in addresses from google search
Coburg Aquarium this was the pick of the bunch, the place was jumping with plenty of people good fish displays fresh and marine great selection 5 star and top marks for this shop long way to travel but worth it. this was the only place that had live food  got some brine shrimp.  My fish love them. anyone know were I can get some daphnia cultures? I would love to breed them at home.
