    Very nice Shrimps Eric, What soil do you use in your

    Looks like some form of Echinodorus specie, maybe Opacus, although I had not seen any with wavy leave edges before

    HK is a Mecca for aqua enthusiasts. In HK, there's a whole street dedicated to aquarium and anything aquarium related. Try google mongkok's gold fish street for more details. Maybe you can do some planning around your plans to include it, it'll definitely be worth your time.

    Google shrimpfan blogspot, I wrote a bit about some of the nicer shrimps stores during my 2014 visit.
