Went to an LFS a while back and snapped a few pics. Google drive is driving me insane as it gives a message that it can't download that type of file which is horses**t as it is part of the group of pics uploaded and it downloads the others. Anyway, these are what came out.

Pretty cool, I remember visiting hong kong years ago and thet had a whole street of aquarium shops, in vietnam they just had pre bagged fish for sale on the street.
Being in Australia the variety and prices of fish blow my mind when im fortunate enough to be somewhere in asia.

Hong Kong fish street is insane. That is also why many shops don't allow photography. lol
Vietnam was very interesting and nice to contrast a developed nation vs developing nation aquarium sector in 2 countries that love fishkeeping.
Australia seems to almost be in a league of its own with prices and availability.
Please post some pics if you go to the LFS again.

Yeah tanks look very clean. It all looks very well looked after.
This shop in particular is in competition with the largest chain in the area and their tanks are immaculate. But most LFS tanks are clean and neat.
The fish here were also in good condition. Hence, my wallet taking a dent.

Care to post and UK LFS pics?

my wife said the fish street in Hong Kong was boring then dragged me off to a street that only had ladies clothes shops which she thought was more interesting for some reason!

during the coming holidays I will be visiting some local LFSs around Melbourne. Most of them don’t allow photos, I’ve never really figured out why. I will try to sneak a few so you can see the crazy high prices we have to put up with here.

Ha......my wife tries the same. She has learnt to leave me and go to her street. I will catch up or more likely she can come back to find me where she left me.

It always sounds so sketch when they say no photos. I know in some shops in Asia it's due to stock. Maybe that is the reason there too.
