Looking to rehome some Bettas.

I live in the Twin Cities Metro area of Minnesota, and I'm looking to rehome 5 fish. I'm trying to rehome them because of my worsening back problems. I don't want to have to give them away willy-nilly on Craigslist. I'd either have to have you come get them OR have you send me the packing materials and a pre-paid shipping label, or a priority mailer of the appropriate size. I know that's highly unusual, but I have no way of getting supplies to ship with, and I have no paypal account. I know that other people on the forum can vouch for the fact that I am an honest, contributing member and would NEVER scam anyone. I understand why someone wouldn't be comfortable with this situation, so if you're not 100% sure of me, don't respond. Here are the pictures of the fish I need to rehome. I would request that anyone taking them in keep them in a tank of at LEAST 2 gallons and you MUST have a heater.

Annabelle is first. She is a VERY aggressive female. She is not appropriate for a sorority or community tank. She is extremely active, and loves to jump when I feed her.

Glitter is next. He's a gorgeous double tail. His fins are EXTREMELY delicate. He should be in a tank with silk or live plants.

Crayola is a chronic tail biter. He'd do best alone, with nothing to stress him out.

Pinkerton is a mellow dude, and likes to swim vertically. He's a silly fish. He's prone to swimming down and hitting gravel. He's a derp. xD

Last is Tinkerbell. She would probably do fine in an established community tank or sorority. She gave my Platies some trouble, so I moved her, but it was nothing serious. I just thought she might like her own space. A larger community tank (20 gallons or so) might suit her just fine.

I would love to take all of them but I wouldn't be able to send all the shipping stuff.

If I named every betta I had in my signature then it would take up two pages of a thread. Lets just say I have many!

=( Yeah, I figured that's what would happen. I just don't have any means of getting money for packing them.

I would love Pinkerton, but again...the shipping. I'm sure someone will be able to take them!

I hope so. =) I honestly wish I didn't have to ASK for packing supplies. It would be so much easier to find homes.

I'm NOT going to do that. They could end up going to someone who would stick them in a tiny bowl and never change they're water. They're better off with me in that case.

Yeah, its best you not give them to petstores, I wouldn't want to think of what would happen.. I would have loved to take Crayola, I even have packing material but looking at my location, it would be too stressful for him and the both of us. X(

I hope they all find amazing homes Sweeda, I'm sorry you have to give them away. :(
