$20 - fish
$5 - shipping to transhipper
~$25-$30 - shipping to you from transhipper plus maybe $5 in handling fees + heatpack

XD well most people buy several fishes because the shipping to you from the transhipper doesn't increase up until a certain number so the cost per fish is technically cheaper. I don't remember where the other transhippers are but you can opt to have her sent by priority mail instead of express mail and I think that one is $15... If you aren't too far from them it might be fine, but usually the transhipper won't refund if the fish arrives dead through priority mail =/

probably just the lighting. coppers tend to vary their apparent color a lot depending on the type, brightness and direction of light as it hits them. some will show silver under LED's but blue-green under incandescent, and true copper tones under fluorescent lighting.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Oh!! Then you can pick them up from her and don't gotta pay shipping. It'll probably be $4-5 fee for pick up. So the fish will only be around $30. One of the transhippers lives 5 minutes from my school so I've been really spoiled XD
