hmm, Singapore is not that big to have different city.. but basically we are divided into the North South East West Region and even our MRT (MTR in Lodon) is taking that as our standard region classification.. Well, I live in the East..

indeed, there are many goldfish keeper in Singapore.. and sadly many seller are not good in keeping the goldfish well.. those seller who keep goldfish well usually charge high for their fishes.. anyway, their fishes are really high in quality.. but I can't afford to pay 500 - 1000 jus for a goldfish..

Hi there, which part of Aussie are you studying in?? When are you graduating??

Frankly Speaking, I dun have any experience in shipping fishes...

As the import of live animals is subject to import control by the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore, you would need to check with them on their requirements at http://www.ava.gov.sg.

next you also need to find out more on how to package your fishes for the transition.. Some people here have done it and probably you would want to check out their dicussion on packaging fishes..

Cheeky-kiss (red-cap), GogGLes (Black moor), Ke-Ai (means cute in chinese , a bronzey black moor), Be-Bi (pearlscale), SiMi (My housemate's fantail) and one newly rescue gf in my q-tank (I suspect it is a stunted-growth red-cap) that I have yet to name....he/she has a really bad tore-up fin....

I've heard that some serious hobbist there buy their goldfish and lets a breeder take care of it? Is it true?

Not too sure about Singapore... :huh:

But in Melbourne, while I am away, I have some professional caretakers (an elderly couple who set up a place to look after all types of pets...l) to look after my fishes... they took very good care of my fishes as they love all types of animals... it's about 10 dollars a week for all my gfs... :D

Going back to S'pore for the sch break so leaving my gfs in good hands :)

there are quite a number of aquarium that carry that range of filters..

gosh, to think I am complaining about $200 -$300 for a filter when it is $500 in other countries.. oh, $200 -$300 is in Sg dollars...

if you need help, I can place an order for you from the shop I usually visit..
