    You have a very healthy looking tank with no inhabitants yet.

    Its a pity to see you might hide all your top DW when all the plants are fully developed and thicken up.

    I sent mail to Indonesia to buy a larger quantity of bucephalandra, I expect a reply.
    in uk is too expensive, but if I do not find anywhere else I will buy from here

    I do not want to use green bucephalandra, just with the red mark

    She began to decline request and thus lowers the price to large retailers.
    in addition, there is also the forum market that is more attractive in terms of price.

    When I sold the last lot of every thing I reduced the price to sell every thing to the one person in the end we were both happy. Forums are a great place to buy and sell aquarium stuff main reason no LFS massive mark up.

    That could not happen in Australia it would cost a fortune to import from Over Seas if permitted there are very strict quarantine regulations. Many garden plants can not travel to another state in Australia.

    I do not think it's that strict, depends on what plant species. otherwise aquarists from Australia where they purchased the plants that are American, Amazonian or African.

    I suspect that customs declarations are a headache or how Australian plants have come to Europe and there are few.

    Right now I'm looking to buy Trithuria Lanterna.

    My understanding you have to be a licenced plant importer and have your own Quarantine section the same goes for importing aquarium fish.

    Australian importing regulations are extremely tough.

    I was fishing off an Island not that far of the mainland, I had an apple which I was going to eat when I got of the plane NONO I either had to eat it now or bin it reason, taking fresh fruit back to the mainland forbidden. If you did get passed the first check you had to get passed the Sniffer dogs and that was impossible. I saw a person stopped as he had carried fruit in his bag the day before the flight.

    I understand and now makes sense.
    Reasons are known and they are right if someone misleads a virus, sickness or anything else contagious is hard to control.

    On another fishing trip in tropical Australia river fishing, as soon as your boat was on the trailer it had to be hosed down including under you car/truck etc as they did not want to take the chance of moving any weeds etc into another area and up the road every car and boat was checked. I have even been stopped when driving into certain areas of Australia checking for Fruit Fly again it was either eat the fruit or bin it the other option was turn around and go back.

    Very strict, and once again reped, Australia being an island (bigger) is very dangerous with everything contagious.
