    DefaultTrip to vietnam.

    Hi guys I'm heading to vietnam for a month and I'm planing to being back some plants and maybe fish. What good there and what to look for. Just freshwater as I don't have salt. I have heard of great corals there but too bad.

    You won't be able to bring any of those things back without some sort of a permit unfortunately. Canada has very strict laws on this kind of thing to protect our environment. Fish and plant wholesalers have to pay big bucks in order to bring in fish and plants from other countries. You can get in big trouble for attempting.

    Yes, that is totally illegal and with the stepped up security at the airports, it's simply not worth the risk of doing something like this. You would get in sooooo much trouble.

    You can apply for an import license, pay their health inspection fees, packing fees. Shipping fees. Cfia permit fees for plants and each kind of fish , broker fees, export fees etc. By the time your done you would've
    Spent far more money than the fish and plants are worth here. It's not the fish and plants that cost it's all the fees .
    But you can go see and take pics .

    What you 'may' want to try is to contact someone who is exporting to Canada already so you can pick your fish and they can do the paper work and shipping.

    You can find extremely exclusive and unique Sulawesi shrimp in many parts of Asia, including Vietnam.
    If that does interest you, contact me as I am also looking to import several species. I'd be very happy to assist with paper work and fees/costs.

    Either way, good luck.

    Quick question: what about rocks or dead corals to be used as display in the tank? Are those ok to bring in?
