Post Golly gee...

So, I emailed the only Canadian transhipper on aquabid (as far as I know anyways) how much it would be to ship the betta from Thailand to me. I live in northern BC, Canada. The rates he gave me were $15 from Thailand to him, and then $90 from him to me. He can ship up to 6 bettas for the 90$, but its an additional $15 for every betta after the first one.

So, for one betta, it would be $105 just for shipping. Is there any other transhipper for Canada that isnt listed? Or an American one that will ship to Canada? Seems pretty steep to me.

Just thought I'd post this info for anyone in BC thinking of getting a betta from Thailand ;)
