Your best bet is probably the Aquarium Stock Company on (I think)
Melrose, in Hollyweird. They're in the phone book. Big ad.

There's another good stor, I think it's on Venice Blvd near the 405
but it's been a while. Best bet is to look in the yellow paegs and
call around, although I'd always use any excuse to go to Aquarium Stock,
it's a cut above the rest.

I guess I've been lucky. I've never seen any incdental charges
or had any problems on either end of a us funds on a Canadian check
transaction. I guess it depends on the banks.
