shipping is more scary for us, than them, i think. xD it can be stressful for the fish, but i rarely hear about DoA fish, and even if they do pass during shipping, the breeder will often replace the fish for you. i had a month old fry shipped to me(without my knowing!), via priority shipping, and she arrived just fine. she was very hungry, of course, but she was fine. :3

How does the shipping thing work? When it says your nearest transhipper, like my nearest is in Miami, would I have to drive to them to get the bettas or anything I ordered or does that transhipper then ship it to you?

i've never ordered a betta from Thailand. x: but, from what i'm to understand, you pick your trans shipper, and they mail it to you, unless you're close enough to drive to them and pick it up.

The transhipper is sort of a middle man. They get the bettas from overseas and then sort them and mail them to their new homes. This is where most the cost of getting a betta from Thailand comes from. Shipping a betta here is the US isn't cheap. If you decided to get a betta from AB I'd use Jennifer as a transhipper, she's in Atlanta and she's great. The closest transhipper to you isn't always the best.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
