They're just big plakats..stick a fancy name on em and you make cash. Pleas ebe careful about your transhipper...I reccomend Linda Olson (since I know her personally...I pick my fish up from her) or Jennifer Vivieros.

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.

Yup Linda handles the legal issues and ships them to you. They will give you a choice but most sellers offer Linda and Jennifer...but fighter bettas almost always go through Julie Tran...her inspector dosen't unwrap the newspaper from their bags which will get people getting fighter bettas really angry.

You can call Linda or email her.

Yup she should. I feel bad for her...she said she gets like ZERO sleep during the first few days after the shipment comes in...luckily I'm gonna help her ship fish this summer!

See? Not so complicated. It feels like a lot at first but it's really just 2 simple steps.
Pay the breeder and pay the transhipper!
Always take into account the FINAL price of the fish when bidding. A lot of people don't understand the cost involved and abbandon fish in the hands of the transhipper.
This would be the breakdown:

Price of fish on auction
+ Cost of shipping from breeder
+ Importing fees from transhipper
+ Packing fees from transhipper
+ Shipping to you
= usually more than the fish itself

Of course, there other fees the transhipper might add depending who it is but this is what I was charged the one and only time I ever imported fish. I buy within the US now :D
