Ugh! Need Your Advice!

So, I found a betta breeder in the UK. She says she'll sell me 1 male at 12.99 ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Stunning-Male-...item41579ccc53 )

A 2nd at 14.99 ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Stunning-Male-...item41579cc4f4 )

And a 3rd at 12.99 ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Stunning-Male-...item415798c3d2 )

Plus he or she (x.x...) will give me a 20% discount on all each betta plus shipping will be 14.99...

I'm still trying to figure out how much that'll be in American, but is that a good deal D Thank you!

Okay, so I figured it out, it ABOUT $92-$95 for all 3 fish and over night shipping. Is it a good deal?

I think they are very pretty! And overnight shipping can be very expensive... I don't really know! But the cheapest shipping I've found on AB is about $18. Say the fish is $15. That alone is $33, if I'm not mistaken. Now include tax and whatnot... and then do that for 3 fish. Granted the prices aren't the same, but I think the deal evens out, especially with overnight shipping.

The first Bettas eyes don't look right....it may be the pic.....but to me that is too much money and I think you could do better in both quality and price...have you checked out aquabid or any of the breeders on this form......also why not buy from USA breeder.....are you wanting pets or are you looking for breeders......

Are you sure this breeder can ship to the US? If they can your also looking at transshipper fees.

IMO those aren't good enough quality for what's being asked for them. The first one I wouldn't even think of breeding.. it wouldn't surprise me if that fish was blind or nearly so.

Thanks Everyone - I thought it over and I'm actually going to buy the 3 baby fry from 1fish2fish. So, thanks for your thoughts, but I know the 3 I'm getting are much better quality :3.

I like the colors of the fish from eBay, and they are definitely unusual, but I'm concerned that the breeder might "doctor" the pictures. I only say this because in the second picture, the white is VERY white. Something about it is just off. But I am glad you decided to try and get the three fish from 1f2f!
