View Full Version : HONG KONG--Aquarium fish center of the world--after 9/11?

11-18-2005, 09:12 AM
I have purchased fish (freshwater and saltwater) from Hong Kong and brought them in several times. I have brought in Fancy Goldfish, Discuses, and marine fish of many kinds.

The selection is great and the prices are easily 20-40% that in the US. Strange is that even fish from the Atlantic are great and much cheaper.

The airline Cathy Pacific had not given my much trouble as long as I checked my treasures in as lugguage and not as carry-on. Every time I went to Hong Kong I would have a shopping spree in the morning for freshwater fish and in the afternoon in saltwater fish on the departure day.

In my Custom form I wrote "tropic fish for personal enjoyment" and have never had trouble at LAX.

The savings paid for a third or a quarter of the airfare.

The question is:

I have not done so after 9/11/2001. If you have done so after 9/11/2001, please tell me about your recent experience.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I can't personal answer your question but i think you might have better luck getting an answer if you post it in another forum than the introduction one ;-)
