AB + shipping prices

I was just curious if I were to find an AB seller that's actually in my state, is it cheaper to ship to me than if the seller was in a different state? I'd really like to get one some time from around the area but if it's going to still wind up costing $35 to get it to me, then I'd just stick with the cutesy impulse buys from the LFS's.

Shipping costs do not change by location IME. Shipping goes by weight and not distance.

I'd search for local breeders. I know there are some in WI. Try searching for a local club on www.ibcbettas.org

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.

Thank you for the fast responses. I should look for local breeders and see if they'd be willing to meet up with me. It would definitely save the fish added stress of shipping, however I don't know how comfortable it would be for a breeder to meet up with a customer in person.
