I found a bunch of asian chipped arowana on the google, especially the guy named “cheng thanh” if I remember correctly, know it illegal and what he say is not correct, but i wonder how he keep selling his asian arowana since 2012 on google and you tube.

tbh it's a pretty obscure law. You've got to figure that if you asked any 100 random people 99 of them wouldn't know the difference between a poly and a stingray, much less be able to easily tell, on sight, the difference between an asian aro and a jardini.

Nobody really cares about the aquarium hobby except the people who are in it you know.

You have no way of knowing if those Aros are really chipped (and CITES registered) -- and the guy (if in USA) likely isn't selling anything since 2012, just ripping people off. There are even more such scams on Facebook, they just keep changing their names and pages.
