The "other" Big Al's

Hey Erik, and others...
Yesterday I went out to the second Big Al's location - in Burnaby, on North Road. I only learned it was there recently, but it's way nicer than the shop in Richmond. They have a king-size display tank with scores of tropicals in it, including some foot-long clowns. Very cool.
And they had a tank full of the tiniest kuhli's I've ever seen - infants, I would say... No outer gills apparent, but some of them were maybe one inch long, only as thick as spaghetti!
Anyway, it's a bit of a haul to get there, but worth the trip.
