Hi GEF and Squeeker, I'm in Ottawa too. I've done comparison shopping for tanks at almost all the pet stores in the city, and Super Pet is definitly the cheepest. Big Al's usually has a better selection of gfs though.

hi everyone, i haven't posted here much in the forums but do read them everyday to see what else i can learn to keep my fish all happy and healthy. I am from Edmonton, Alberta and been born and raised here, i don't think i will ever leave. Love it too much and my family, well at least my immediate family is here. Couldn't leave them, we are too close, sometimes we have fights but that is expected. Everyone looks at me funny because when i put my fish to bed at night, i tell them "goodnight and see you tomorrow morning". :lol: but i love all animals. I have 2 cats and a dog, and hopefully soon i will get a bird. If i ever get my community tank cycled and running properly, lost 3 black phantom tetras within 3 weeks, :cry1

Nice meeting you all hope to talk soon in forums. :hi

:hi love goldfish

My Aunt and I visited Alberta a couple years ago. We went to the West Edmonton Mall, drove the Icefield Parkway, and all sorts of other great stuff: You have a beautiful province-- I couldn't get over how varied the landscape is: from the mountains to flat prairies to hoodoos/badlands to metropolitan centres, Alberta's pretty much got it covered. I would love to go back someday-- and I'm not surprised you wouldn't want to leave such a beautiful place. :)

Thanks Pollock for the tip: I think I passed by the Big Al's when we visited last weekend, but I didn't get a chance to have a look--it probably would have been too much of a temptation anyway!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

(Random Thought)

I was watching tv the other, a show called "Oblivious" (anyone heard of it?) anyways you win money by answering questions correctly, however the catch is, you don't know you're playing! its a hidden camera game show..

ANYWAYS i'm watching this one episode they had the host pretending to be a foreigner trying to write his girlfriend an engagement sign. It was full of mistakes - "WILL U DU ME THE HONUR AND MERRY ME? SINCERLY,...." the lady they picked had to help him correct the sign...

the lady who was 'playing' had him spell HONUR as HONOUR... They didn't give her the money!!!! because its an American game... She was canadian and was complaining the whole time....

Wow, I don't believe hidden camera shows. They just say there's a hidden camera, to make you watch it. How do they get the people on TV, without their permission. That's just my opinion :) I do watch them, when there's nothing else on ;) Of course I do like to watch my fish too :lol:

Well they have to ask permission before they show it on tv.

which means they can tape you and then ask if they can use it. if someone says no, they have to scrap it.

Never saw it. But have you heard of Superstar USA? It's horrrible, they look for people who are the worst singers and they have to beleive they are best. And they are so happy because they might win. here's what I would do if I had the most amazing voice, which I don't :lol: , and then I'd sing my worst and then at the end when I won and they asked me to sing a good song. I'd sing the best.. haha..but of course no one knows that they are being picked for worst. It's terrible.

Time to bump this up :) I'm new here and thought I would let you all know where I'm from. Most of us locals call it Speedy Creek but on the map its Swift Current, Saskatchewan. We have 2 pet stores here but IMHO they suck so I have to travel or order on line to get anything at a good price.

Theyre trying to be cool fishbert!!!!

As for here on the Cape, we have Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Bugs. Blackflies i personally fine worse then misqitoes, due to the fact you can here misqutoes when theyre near you. Plus i work with horses all the time so thats even more bugs. Hurrah.

Also, our spring starts on July 1, and then the fall ends August 1.

Yes I know, but the rest of the country may or may not have assassin bugs. :P

Ever have one of these come suddenly fluttering through the window ready to bite?
