Should I?!

So I've been talking to the breeder, and told him I'd like to buy a couple of his fish, but couldn't send an echeck until Monday, and he said that was fine! -excitement- So I plan to use the 'buy it now' option sometime today, but I would like you all to grade my options. This would be my first time transshipping, so if you all could recommend a transhipper I'd love that. I'm pretty sure I understand the process really well, but would like to tell the transhipper ahead of time so I can pay her ahead of time as well. =3 Thanks! Here are my options:



Those are my favorite two, but I'd be willing to go for another should they be liked. (I like the rest as well) =3 http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...&Smilebetta&t&

I LOVE the first one. I've been admiring him! Also, I HIGHLY recommend Jen Viv/aka hopdiggity as your transhipper. She is nothing short of the best.

Good luck!

Haha, enablers. Should I get just one or two? I know you save money when you buy more than one. Have a couple other bettas on my mind, but their auctions don't close till next week, these guys close earlier. =3 I can ask Jen to hold the bettas till they all arrive correct, then to ship?

Well, even though they are gorgeous, I'd say pick just one, then you can buy another betta with different colours.

That's me on the photo alright.

Yes, halfmoon. HM and HMPK are my favorite finnage type. I don't have a real hardcore preference toward color, but marbling, koi, and butterfly are my favorite markings, even though I know they're random and unpredictable. Or maybe I'm just a little obsessed, period?

hahahaha, I don't blame you, if I could afford a whole collection of bettas I would too, I love those with massive and heavy finnages xD!

But idk, if you don't mind the colours just pick the ones you found more attractive towards it. :p

That's me on the photo alright.
