    Yes, that sounds familiar....this spring it was $300 when I brought in a box from Thailand. I thought this was a great bargain because i didn't need to handle any of the permits or other fees involved. I don't really know whats involved for GB imports, but one idea is to fill the box with the max # of fish it will hold then you can probably recoup your import cost by selling some of the extras.

    Well, I only have experience with this one specific breeder in Thailand, but I feel safe saying that a whole range of prices could be available. It seems that most Thai are impeccable with their goldfish and operate at a very high level of skill, far beyond what the Chinese have been doing, in my opinion of course! I don't have any input about Indonesia, sorry. I can provide you with the name of an exporter in Thailand if you get that far along in the process, although Star probably has this information already.
