Okay, my question: how will the finds be handled? There are people here from Canada, USA, Australia and the UK and even Asia.

The winner of the contest will find the Betta they want (the price of the fish cannot exceed $30, if it requires bidding I will bid on my account ONLY UP TO $30) I will close out the auction and give the seller my payment information, and I will have them ship it to your transhipper. I will then contact the transhipper in your area and coordinate your address again, and I will pay shipping from the transhipper to your front door. So again, your spending limit on a fish is $30, and shipping/importation costs will be taken care of by me. This is for all members in all countries, AS LONG AS the breeder of the fish is able to ship to your country.



Once more,

What you pay - $0
What I pay- price of fish + importation fee + shipping from transhipper to you + heat packs / cold packs as needed.


For those of you who are skeptical of me, this is not a scam or some joke. It's my way of being a generous individual, and let's me give back to the Betta-crazy community. Also keep in mind that this contest will be 100% optional, you don't have to enter if you don't want to.

Well, I know that JUST transhipping fees for Canada are $90. Are you sure you know what you're getting into? :/

I don't know if this would interest anyone, or even if you, KadenJames would wish to offer this, but If someone didn't want a fish would you be willing to offer a membership to the IBC? Memberships can be as low as $20 a year. (Black and white electronic Flare!)

The fees are slightly different depending on where you are from if you want color paper issues of Flare! mailed to you. It might even be an option for people unable to get fish shipped to them due to restrictions of their country.

It would be something I would even be more interested in, and would save you money, and give access to more knowledge about the fish we all love. :D

Just thought I would toss the idea to you. :)
