Did a Google search for Big Al's locations in the lower mainland and found that they were now Island Pets. From there I found a link to BCA, was impressed by this forum, signed up and the rest is history.
If I recall correctly, I stumbled across this site while googling info on dwarf shrimp. I looked through the forums for a bit, and was amazed that a site dedicated to fishkeepers of BC existed. I signed up right there and then, and now come by on a daily basis.
was planning to have an aquarium tank in my room..so did some research on how to start and so on..stumbled upon BCA...joined. because majority of the members are local and there were really good info on forum
Was informed of the BCA by a previous member whom i meet in a LFS around 2004 when the i think the first or second site was up at the time.Was a long time looker , and finally decided to post with the site that just went down not too long ago.
Charles recommended it to me when I contacted him via cichlid forum. Didn't realize he was from Vancouver at first. So far, coming back to this hobby after being away for over 10 years has been most enjoyable, made even more enjoyable by all the kind folks on BCA.
I found BCA thru Google.....every time I would Google a problem with a fish or my tank, one of the first few results always brought me here. Then along came the tank addiction lol. Which was about the same time I became a member. Had 2 tanks when I joined , now have 6 lol This is a great community and alot of good, knowledgeable people here. Truly glad to be a part of it
