      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...
