Majestic is owned by Paul Talbot, has been into cichlids for many years and

a member of NSWCS , he also has a good knowledge of marines and the

usual freshwater species

the shop is very well marketed and Paul has also produced DVD's and has

a very well produced website

pricing of the online stock list seems reasonable for LFS

I haven't been in his shop for a few years but it has been established for quite

a while now good product and livestock range and extra services, not much

competition in the local area for them until you cross over the bridge

(Tarren Pt) and head to St George at Rockdale

Yeah they have a reef shark for "free to a good home" .They said they would help someone convert their pool to keep it lol. Wish I had a tank big enough to house sharks.

There is Aquariums at Asquith and Reef River in Hornsby. Both are on the same side of the harbour at least. If I were you I would go on a research trip. Compile a list of questions and see who answers you the best without trying to sell you $$$$s of unsuitable products.

The other thing is their stock can vary depending on what is coming in.

I have to admit going to the auction is probably the best thing you can do for yourself $2 entry and you can buy plenty of fish at really good prices alot cheaper than a LFS but thats not the best benefit its the knowledge you gain from going that is amazing. I can think Jan last yr i didnt now anything about cichlids now i got 12 tanks. Majestic aquarium is getting some new stuff in terms of species as is appindotcom but if you want your standard bread and butter its worth going for a night to NSWCS monthly meeting cause like i said it will benefit you so much just for that night and you will learn alot about just keeping fish.

cheers

John

forgot to ask what cichlids you after in particular maybe someone here can help you out

if your heading down that way check out the fish bowl aquarium, only down the road from St George, princes highway Carlton. Last time I was there they had alot of beautiful red Rubin peacocks, they were pretty cheap as as far as I could remeber.
