shipping plants around the world.

This is probably a tall order..however
does anyone have information like there is for restricted animal imports,
but on what plants are allowed in certain parts of the world ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I believe it is up to each country what they will allow in across the border. Canada where i live has brought in new laws relating to ornamental fish and plants. The US has had laws regulating plants and fish for some time. I don't have the specifics.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
