    Question for JMorash

    Instead of a PM, i thought i would post like this in case anyone else has any info.

    Hi JMorash, you posted this to JayP "JayP, Don't do it man, Channa will no longer be imported to Canada". Can you elaborate on this. I am planning a reno of my garage with these type of fish in mind. Your comment worries me a bit. Say it ain't so!

    Many things are imported daily that are against the law, so when it comes time they ban ALL snakeheads trust me, they will still be for sale in Canada lol. Plus, when they give the announcement many suppliers and serious keepers will bring in many. Jay's are the only ones around though! and they kickass so I suggest if you are considering some, get them!
    x2 Giant snakeheads, x5 armatus, 2x spotted African lungfish, 3X TATF, ornate bichir, florida gar, MBU puffer, 2 indo dats, 2 spotted daemon, silver arowana. WTB: goliath! - electric eel

    I would've bought them right away if I had the tank ready. At the rate I'm going now it will be December before I'm ready.

    Its a myth , there is nothing illigal about importing channa to canada , no laws against it. Channa Striata is the only species that cannot be imported under the new laws.

    That roumer has been floating around for years because of bana in the US as well as ontario , Quebec and most recently BC. This does make importing difficult because many flights travel through those provinces and many large wholesalers are in these places but its legal as long as they clear customs else were in one of the other provinces.

    Although with that said as more research is done into the wild habitates and populations it is likly that more abd more will earn protective status due to over fishing to supply the fish trade. Hopefully by then more people will be working to breed them!

    So do I ! Id guess 200+ Aurantimaculata in my take currently ! And several other pairs of other species that will likly produce fry next year ! I also plan to get 3-4 more species added to my collection when the season rolls around. All in groups to form breeding pairs !
