While much is known in the United States, United Kingdom and Europe about how the saltwater aquarium industry and hobby works, little is known about China. Some reports have been floating out of China over the years but thankfully we have people like Steve Wright that give us rare glimpses into the communist country. Steve went to a marketplace and a vendor was trying to get him to purchase a Mandarin dragonet, the conversation they had went something like this:
Sales lady: These are nice.
Steve: Yes I know, but my tank is only 16 months old and I donâ€™t have enough small shrimps to feed it and nobody sells pods in China?
Sales lady: It will be fine.
Steve: No not in my tank it wont and thatâ€™s why I donâ€™t want one.
Sales lady: Whatâ€™s the problem? They are only cheap! (Point being- If it dies you can buy another one.)
