Cool

I am in westland michigan. I have shipped via Jennifer Viveiros and find her more than adiquate.

For aquabid you pay their bid, plus their shipping to the airport, then the transhipper fee that gets it to your house.

I have 4 of my fish that came from Thailand.

Jeff.

Usually with AB bettas you pay the price of the fish plus about $5 and then you pay the transhipper at your end seperately

How long does Thailand to the transhipper take?

Mine have always gotten from the breeder to the transhipper within a day after being shipped. Oddly enough it takes longer for the package to get from the transhipper to me, and I live an hour away from Linda. xD Maybe it's just strange bad luck.

I live about 30 minuets from Linda.

Fish are shipped Sunday, arrive at DIA on Monday around 4 or 5. Linda gets them around 6 or 7. I pick them up either the night of shipment or within a week (I usually get them on Tuesday).

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

ok, so i could go priority shipping from the transhipper to me and it shouldn't be a problem. I just don't want to pay 4x what the fish is worth to ship it.

Priority is fine. Especially with the packing job Linda does. Jen has a good packing method too though Linda prepares for every shipping disaster.

MrV, if I had some bettas imported and drive north to pick them up, would I be allowed to take a tour of your mysertious fish room? :P There's another new breeder in Aurora named Mark who is under Linda's wing at the moment, I'd probably stop by and say hello to him again as well. He came down here to pick up an orange-masked halfmoon female from me not too long ago.

I need to meet some breeders lol.

I've been meaning to meet Son in Westminster (AMAZING reds, he made me fall in love with super red HMPKs), I've met April in Boulder, and I know a few who own a store in Arvada (they help Linda pack up the fish). If you want you can stop by :D I'd have to clean a bit though lol.

Also let Mark know I'm in Aurora as well :) We need to get a club started.
