aquarium stores in Danang, Vietnam

Post by Biulu on Sun Aug 23, 2015 11:07 pm

You guys probably noticed that I have not been around much the last weeks. The reason is that I am on a double mission in Vietnam; first 3 weeks in Central Vietnam and then another 4 weeks in North Vietnam.

It is probably an unusual tourist activity for most people but you guys will understand that it is simply fun to visit aquarium stores in other places and see what they have (or not have). So, here I go with a few pictures from stores in Danang, an incredibly hot (36-40 degrees!) small seaside city in Central Vietnam of around 1 million inhabitants.

Here we go: Ca Canh means ornamental fish

Sometimes they operate from their own house....

'Fortune' fish are big and look what they do to make them look even redder:

Plenty of live foods for sale, ranging from blood worms to mosquito larvae

Wow I love being the fly on the wall of your trips. So very cool to see the stores. I'm not sure I'd want to be on the water in one of those boats.

The plant selection looks lovely too. Hope to see more photos soon.

Thank you for these photos. We get to travel through them, as I suspect most of us would walk into aquarium stores too.

Thanks Biulu we may not get there but your pics sure help us to understand better. I would also check out the fish stores and I wish we could get the live foods here as fish love it.

Lovely pictures! The red plants are AWESOME. I am curious what the middle one is called in the plant tank.

I am not completely sure but it could be a red ludwigia.
