Thanks guys. I was in the hobby pretty heavy a few years ago, and took a break from it. Now im looking to get back into it again. Some of you may remember me from another fish club back in the day. I was recommended to check out this site by a friend to get away from the politics and drama and just enjoy the hobby. Its nice to find a club thats shares the fun of the hobby and nothing more.
Thanks
Mike

Yes,my username was Mike and i met you through Stacey. Its been a while, hasn't it. I live in Eastern Passage.

I noticed a big change in retail of fish since i left the hobby. As far as retail goes there isn't much out there like there used to be. Its like all the stores pretty much downsized there fish departments and supplies. I haven't hit all the stores yet but so far Ruffin's in Bedford is the only store i found that has i nice supply of well maintained fish. I was impressed.
I used to do most of my purchases from Aqua Creations and Tom's Tropicals and off the forums. Now that those two stores are gone, I'm not sure where to go for selection of fish. Most of the stores just sell community fish and I'm more interested in cichlids and marine. I haven't set up a tank yet but I'm looking forward to doing so and I am just pricing things up for now. Getting a members discount will definitely be beneficial for when i purchase my equipment.
It's not the best time for me to set up a tank because in a month or so, i head back to work to my seasonal construction job and wont have time to maintain a tank in the summer, but i have the fever of getting back into the hobby. I may just set up a tank now and establish it over the summer and then stock it in the fall when I am off work.

Welcome aboard, Mike.

Pet's Unlimited in Bayer's Lake have a wide selection of fish, including marine.

I know Eastern Passage well. It was in my backyard for 39 years. Lol.

Forgot to mention, I worked construction, too. I helped build Fisherman's Cove back in 1994/95/96. I did a lot of the cedar shingles on the buildings. My brothers have been in construction since the 80s, so I've been in and out of the trade for years.

Thanks for the info guys.
Construction starts up in a months time. About 90 hours/week doing highway paving and operating a loader. It doesn't leave much spare time and we do alot of travelling, too.
Good money though.

Thanks. I have to setup a tank first though. Im just trying to figure out exactly what i need and how much it will cost me to setup. I am trying to get used but im really fussy and want mint gear to set up a really nice show tank. One step at a time, i guess.
