The pet market in Xinkai Street near the Minshan Hotel on Renmin Nan Lu is the place you need to go for both fish and supplies but there is only one shop where they speak reasonable English.

If you are planning to become an aquarist then you should consider that ‘aqua’ refers to water, not to fish. You need to aim at creating an environment that will support plants. For that you will do best with a co2 diffuser coupled with fertiliser both in the gravel and the water. When you have established an aquarium full of healthy plants then you stand a much better chance of healthy fish (if you don’t overstock with fish) than if you have no plants or if your plants always die.

PM me if you need ‘technical support’ and a guided tour of the shops or whatever.
