Conflicted... need help!
I'm having trouble organizing my thoughts right now... so pardon me if this post is all jumbled up, I only rewrote the post 9,123,993,421 times... =P
I want another betta, and I want to order it from AB. I've found my favorite seller and I keep stalking his auctions (you can see some of his fish in my profile xD), waiting for that 'omg gotta have' moment. But... but... I'm so cautious and hesitant about the whole 'shipping-all-the-way-from-Thailand' thing and all the risks involved. I know people do it successfully all the time but it just makes me so nervous. True, the seller has a DoA guarantee, but that's only for the first 24 hours after arrival... what if he dies 25 hours after arrival... >.> What if he never adjusts to his new home? What if he never recovers from the shipping? I take excellent care of my bettas, but suddenly I'm paranoid that I would mess something up... oops forgot to add water conditioner, or I over fed him and he exploded, or he managed to figure out how to get out of the tank in the middle of the night and my dog ate him... yeah... my mind is kind of going crazy right now... it's just a big investment and I want it to go well.
