Hi everyone, I discovered ASW 1 week ago and I'm glad to find such kind of dynamic forums with input from all over the world. I'm french (from Paris) leaving in Shanghai, China, for 3 years now. Here we have many flower and fish markets with hundred of shops (Chinese peoples are big fans of fish, bird and crickets) including some aquascaping shops. Biggest advantage is of course the very low price to start with the hobby and the diversity of the species available. Disadvantage is the very short term vision for the materials.. (hopefully its possible to find German brands like Eheim/JBL + Internet ). I also take this opportunity to ask if any ASW members in Shanghai ? See you.
