    Heya guys,

    I'm currently in China for a 5 year contract, and I'm thinking of moving here hehe. I was wondering if any1 has any experience here?

    1. Which brand of aquarium---cleair.net, or that sunsun or some other brand---to recommend?
    2. Where do I go to buy fish here in BJ? :D

    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure about buying Fish in Beijing, but if you want to buy a tank that comes with filters etc, then there is a brand called AA which is not too bad and fairly reliable as far as Chinese brands go...

    Otherwise, i'm sure you could find a specialist fishtank manufacturer to make you a custom one for pretty darn cheap too... just make sure YOU know what a safe glass thickness is if you want to make a large tank...

    Yeah, large tanks over there cost next to nothing by themselves, but im sure if you look around you'll find some really nice fish...
