Vaygirl... Yes Zippity is one of the ones up for adoption. She's still very small but her color is coming in amazing. She's very blue/green. Her stripes are definitely better than what they were but she still stripes very quickly. She seems very healthy and active though. Would you like me to hold her for you?

I'm not sure how much shipping will be right now. I have to see how much the boxes and styrofoam lining will cost. I do know that the shipping bags will be 0.40c a fish. If I get the box from walmart I think it will be cheaper than getting it from the post office.. I'm going to run by there on friday and see how much they are and see how much the styrofoam is.

I'm feeling under the weather and I have a bunch of stuff going on this week so I won't be able to get new pictures until either tomorrow night or friday. If you want to see pictures there are some in my picture threads I did a couple weeks ago.

These fish will go not only on a first come first serve basis but also who I think can do the best job of giving them a long healthy life.

I hope you can find good homes for them. :) I really want the first male, but I've been having problems with keeping fish and have had some mysterious deaths so I don't want to take another one on until I figure out what's wrong. And I'm sure you wouldn't want to give him to me knowing that. :P

Haha.. yeah probably. But luckily I'm not adopting out the boys for a while longer. So you have time (and also competition for this yellow guy.. he's the one every one likes the most). They both have tail damage that I would like to see on the mend first.

The girls don't have any fin damage and no parasites that I can tell and seem to be healthy enough to find homes. Its amazing considering the shape of the cups they were in but all they needed was a little heat, food, and clean water and they're perfect.

I have 2 female bettas for adoption. So far Vaygirl has interest in Zippity and I'm awaiting a reply from her. I've had some interest in both of them from others on a different forum but nothing concrete.

From what I can see online the USPS flat rate box might be able to fit 1 or 2 fish (I'll have to look at one in person). The price for that is $10.50 meaning for one fish the shipping would be $10.90.. so far. I have to figure out how much it will cost for the styrofoam so its going to probably be around $15 or so (thats not definite though so don't take my word for it).

Like I said if the adopter wants to opt for express shipping I will be happy to oblige.. just be warned that it will cost more. My estimates are for priority shipping.

I'm still interested. Price Express for me? I'm more then willing to spring for overnight. I have a 6 gallon eclipse in storage and LOTS of silk plants until I can get some live ones. I have a small clay pot and I WILL cover the hole for her. I'm still going back and forth about where I'd put her. Whiskey is bigger and might benefit from the 6 and I could put her in the hex 5 on my desk. Either way, I have a place. :)

But take your time if you're sick. We'll all be here!

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango

Oh wow! That sounds great! Right now she's getting the high life. She's in my planted 4 gallon with 2 mystery snails because one of my males has fin rot. Her color just exploded after putting her in there.. she really likes it. (Sometimes its hard to find her though LOL).

She would make a great companion for a desk... she's very inquisitive and so cute! I love looking at her because she really does look like this --> >< LOL

I'll ask about how much it would be to ship overnight or express. I just have to get through tomorrow then I have Friday off and can get fish stuff done . I'll PM you with the rates when I find out. I'll put Zippity down as "pending" until I can let you know the rates

Dang! I was interested in Zippity! x) I'm glad she's going to a good home ^_^ Good luck finding places for the other 3! I'm sure there are more than willing people on this forum to take them in! You did an amazing deed taking those fish! Their cups were disgusting!
