Amazing. I would love to see the goldfish.

It's all like you died and went to aquarium heaven.

I went there the 3 times I've been there and never really buy anything. For the most part, electrical items are 220V and then i never come prepared to compare prices to see if I'm getting ripped off then again I wasn't into fish like I am again all those times. Hesistant to buy plants because of customs.

I have been there as well, and have always bought equipment (not electrical, but things like drop checkers, diffusers, etc) and never livestock.

As you mentioned, customs would confiscate all the plants without a phytosanitary certificate.

Very cool!



Anyone know what type of rock that is, on the bottom shelf right side, with the well defined lines/crevices? Looks like a miniature mountain.

America's got nothing that even touches what these photos shows... woah...

Though their method of prebagging seems a bit aggressive, this surely would trump any "online" sale i'd come across in the states. The competition surely keeps prices down as previously posted.

Each of the large cities in China has an aquatic street though stock would vary by what's available locally. The one i came across in vietnam was bleh...

Wow, I guess I didn't know where to look in Shanghai. I loved the flower and pearl markets though.

My favorite place in the whole world.

I've been there a many times but before I was really into aquaria. There's equally grand flower and bird market nearby too. On the weekends the streets are packed to the gills.
