i returned to the States about a week ago, but was too lazy and tired to upload the pics, sorry. :pan

my trip was to vietnam and you guys would love the fish store there. There were rows and rows of fish stores, each one next to the other. it was like a street full of fish stores.

here the pictures (sorry for so many)

this is a pond full of koi in a park

plus i forgot to say, my fish are fine! fewwwwww!! after a month and a half with no one to feed them or do water change, i was so surprise that they were alright. not a single one died. they were in the pond outside with no filtration, leaving for 1 1/2 month, we couldn't let the electricity on. yamaha (my koi) have gotten paler though. the commons that my dad bought from petsmartt have grown a lot. buffalo and wing didnt seem to grow any.

just a little update :)

OMG! Archers! Arapima! Arowana! Giant Red Tails! I would never leave that store.

As others stated, black ghost knife. There are many different types. Some get gigantic. My favorite is the clown knife.

Thanks for sharing.

welcome back! glad your fish are ok.

And wow, those fish are amazing! Cheap too.

:exactly yep, the price and quality of the fish is pretty good, some of the ryukins have great humps and deep body shape, and the price for it was $ 5! it annoys me that i cant bring one over (especialy with a spare 30 gal :rolleyes: )

I bet its been done. there are some lethal riders over there with no helmet laws and they carry boxes of chickens and animals on the back so maybe fish too :unsure: It looks absolutely a fabulous time. the pictures are fantastic nice and close and clear. Some very nice calico ryukins :druel and I've never seen the ghost knife/chicken feather fish. Fascinating fish.

It looks like you had the holiday of a lifetime. And thats the very best homecoming that your fish were fine in the pond when you returned :)

Good to have you back!

The pics are great. Good to know your travel was safe and your fish all survived.

I just love traveling to Asia. It's so different from here it feels like a real holiday.

I want to visit Vietnam some day. :rolleyes:
