I would expect imports from overseas to become more and more difficult. The US is not going to relax about importing live plants and animals. For one, there could have certainly been a pest on the plants. If you have ever gotten plants with eggs of snails, planaria, limpets, or the like you can see what I mean. Sure, the plants may be legal, but what is the seller keeping with those plants? A critter accidently introduced to his tank from his water supply? Who knows.

I'm just saying that overseas orders will likely be checked- and there will only be more and more complaints. Put yourself in AquaSpot's position. He wants to sell plants to those who want them (us) and is having major issues. Now I am sure he's dealing with way more than just one visit from customs agents and possibly masses of emails from buyers as well. Sure, maybe being patient won't fix the problem, but this is how ordering overseas can go.

I'd suggest ordering from fellow hobbyists if you want to get good service and plants.
