I actually met and spoke with a guy who sells plants on one famous online bid site and he mentioned he got his plants from Thailand. He mentioned it was not a hard process getting an application and get it cleared from USDA. The plants need to be pick up personally from USDA at the airport.
Oh didn't realized this thread got bumped/still active haha. Thanks for the additional pics lotzodomo and darkblade48! Where in Japan did you see those shops? I went to Tokyo and Kyoto earlier this year. I didn't really see any aquarium stores... and I didn't have enough time to go up to see the Amano gallery.... =/
I actually went back to HK at the end of 2011. I may have a few more pics to add... Turn over rate over there is pretty crazy, couple of those shops I posted were not there 11 months later.
Yah... pretty mess up. Generally that is something you would see in mainland China. I didn't see those in HK when I was there, generally speaking HK and Taiwan have much higher moral standards than the mainland.
Darkblade48 were you able to visit the sky tree aquarium?
It has been awhile since I've been to HK, the other weekend I had to make a visa run, HK is the cheapest option, so naturally for the few days I had, I had to take a look what was going on down in Mong Kok. For the most part it seems like the pet street is holding up. Though there does seem to be a little less shops and more restaurants. There also seems to be an increase in furry animal shops as well. Also most shops had "No photo" signs plastered everywhere this time, so I wasn't able take that many... The shops on the second floor seems more accepting to pics tho...
