Thank you so much! Pink is my favorite ^^

He's here!!! And alive! He's a little pale from being shipped, but he's breathing and swimming! I can't wait to see how he colors up once he's had some time to settle. He's soooo pink!

It's so funny how bettas has such distinct faces. I can definitely see a difference in his form compared to my other two.

Please forgive me, I realize I turned the box over a few thousand times, but I could not figure out a good spot to pull up the tape ><

I think he may have nibbled his fins a little bit- but that's fairly common with shipping fish, isn't it?

Is always a relief when you open the box & they're moving. Fin nipping is normal I'm sure. Just keep an eye on the fins.
Ours seem to all have the grumpy look LOL. Look forward to more photos too.

I didn't realize I was holding my breath until I saw him swimming.

He's already gotten more color, and he is one of the most feisty fish I e ever seen, which is hilarious since he is about half the size of my veil tail. He's really friendly though, and already comes to the front of the tank.

Did you pick priority or express shipping, and how long did it take? I found an AQB fish that I'm totally enamored by and I'm trying to get opinions on shipping.

I got priority shipping. He shipped Tuesday and was here Thursday. :)

I live in Alabama and the seller is in Arkansas.
