I honestly don't know why people still get them from asia, but I know they are still imported. They breed them by the thousands in outdoor ponds. I have talked to my LFS store owner and he told me it really depends on the wholesaler. Some really good wholesalers know each source and stick with reliable sources, others just go for the cheapest fish. Same with LFS owners.
