aquarium supplies

Big Al's did a great job in assisting us to set up our first fresh water aquarium. The selection of fish was amazing and most of the staff were highly knowledgeable. We needed a lot of assistance with knowing what type of fish could be together and the signs posted were clear and understandable.

New Aquarium

We live near to Big Al's and recently bought and aquarium for our family room. They had a great selection of fish and supplies at reasonable prices. The knowledge of the staff was great and they wanted to make sure that we had the knowledge to properly get our aquarium set up. We will definitely go back for supplies and new fish.

Aquarium Cleaning

Purchased a new aquarium and was a total newbie. So decided to hop in the car and go to Big Al the Professionals. They helped me with everything an even explained to me what I am doing wrong and educated me about aquarium. Will totally recommend them to anyone!

Turtle-related

We required a big tank for our two turtles, and also needed to put a divider (so the big one wouldn't kill the little one). The staff at Big Al's were knowledgeable and helpful in making sure we got the right size tank, and giving us advice on how to build the divider wall. They made sure to tell us what rocks/gravel/decor to sta away from, and the turtles love their new environment.

Fish & Plant Selection

Been going to Big Als since starting the hobby a year ago. Let me say that out of all the fish shops in the GTA this one had the greatest selection of fish and plants, even has a large selection of suplies. The service is great! They know their stuff. They have weekly sales and even have a points program, great for saving a buck or two.

fish tank purchase

Went to Big Als to purchase a small gold fish bowl and was amazed at how inexpensive it was to buy a whole fish tank. The sales associate helped me pick out the tank, plants and all of the needed accessories to get the tank up and running. Thanks for all of your help and knowledge

Saltwater corals

For many years now, I've had a 150g saltwater tropical aquarium and am always on the lookout for new corals to add to my tank. Although Big Al's is about 20-25% more expensivve than some of it's neigbors, I've never been disappointed with their livestock or products or service from knowledgeable salespeople.
They also have an excellent assortment of glass and acrylic tanks and lights and all types of decorations.
And Oh yes, dedicated free parking!

We have been using Big Al's for years. Wide selection and the staff are very helpful, even if you are new to the world of fish and have many questions!

New Aquarium

Big Al's are the best. Their prices on Boxing Day were great and the manager was very patient and helpful. He did not try to sell us the most expensive stuff and even helped us with everything from decorations to step by step instructions on setup and care. Will always shop there because of how well we were treated!
