Hi there, I'm sorry to throw in a post that isn't on the current topic. But I'm dying after reading this:
Please keep in mind you cannot buy fish from USA if you are Canadian. They won't allow it across the boarder
I'm currently living in the US, (I'm a US citizen) and was planning to bring my fish with me to Montreal when I go in 13 days. (I'm possibly staying forever.. my bf lives there..) I was reading up on the Health of Animals Regulations by the Dpt. Of Justice and it was my understanding that I would be able to bring them across with me. As long as I could prove that they are owned by me and I'm not setting them loose in the wild and ' the person presents, to the inspector, proof of his or her identity and proof of the manner in which he or she acquired the aquatic animal.'
So I have a bunch of receipts from Petco and receipts of my tanks and rocks and other betta things. I wrote up a page with all their ages, when I bought them, and that they were born in captivity and what colors and genders.
I've done all this.. yet I really don't know if it will work..
I wanted to ask here because it dawned on me that if anyone knows about crossing the border with their pet fish, it must be someone on here!
Again, I'm terribly sorry for butting in. =( I'm so scared to lose my Capernicus.
