So.... I'm from Canada and in about 2 weeks I'm going to the US with my family and I won't have a LOT of time to shop but I was thinking of stopping by a WalMart to see the aquariums. Walmarts here have NO choice... what do you recommend? Or if I have time to stop by 1 animal store which one do you recommend?
Where exactly in the US will you be going? Petco's usually have the best selection of betta's, but if there is a good locally owned pet store near where you will be staying that's where I would go to look first.
Yikes, I hope you'll be traveling back before that goes into effect on Dec. 10th. It sounds like declaring them might not be so hard though, they only need your name, the name of the place you bought the fish, species name and country of origination.
If you travel through Canada, you're still importing into Canada I would think. The reason for all these laws is to prevent something not native to our country from entering such as diseases. I believe with fur animals, you need to have a vet authorize they are healthy and can travel as well as updated shots and rabies. At least that's what I was told when I wanted to bring a dog from USA to Canada. That's totally something you should look into, I would hate for your babies to be QT'd for 10 days :(
