You make some beautiful jewelry. @_@ Wish I weren't $2 from being homeless!

I'm really glad you ended up getting your money back, although that guy was a huge jerk and hassle.

So glad you got your money back. What a nightmare, though, to have to go through all that trouble and get harassed on top of it.

I always make a point to thank online sellers (of anything I order) when I have a great experience with them, especially if there's been any kind of issue. I'll go out of my way to order from folks with great customer care. I want to reward good service because there's so much really BAD service out there.

But in my opinion I would always do express shipping when shipping live animals. In his ad he does say that priority doesn't include the live arrival guarantee and with express you get it plus tracking and heat pack. I'm sorry you had to go through that tho.

Wow. What a massive jerkwad. Never sold fish but as on online seller of 80's toys via ebay and collector forums, I ALWAYS include delivery confermation for my packages to prove they have been shipped. Since this seller didn't I think its fair to assume he never sent the fish especially since he wanted to use a new tracking number for a supposedly different fish.

Woah ok this guy has no clue what it means to sell fish.

First, you NEVER ship a fish Priority after Monday.

Two, the customer should ALWAYS have a tracking code on fish shipments.

And finally, terrible service gets you no where.

TBH I don't think he even shipped the fish.

As far as Priority vs Express, Priority is fine 99% of the time except in very hot or cold weather. Spring and late summer are the best Priority shipping times. I have shipped Priority in winter and I have a zero DOA record. It's all about packing right. And as far as tracking codes... they are a MUST. I never ship without one.

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! My cat had been pretty uninterested in my fish until I decided to put my bookshelf aquarium under one of my 10g's and it was at her level. Suddenly I would see her go up and watch Ross (my blue/red CT male) swim around his (near to the ground) tank. Since then I've seen her looking at the other tanks too but she's never tried to get to the fish. lol

I still agree this seller is an idiot and should get out of the fish selling business.
Its nerve-wracking shipping fish no matter how far away they're coming from.
I have no immediate plans to add any fish but a long way in the future I may do a sorority with all siblings from a breeder. but my current sorority is doing great so thats a long way off :)

My bettas: 6 boys and 8 sorority girls
Making it my mission to have all natural planted tanks!

When the sellers /try/ to help you, it's always worth going back. Because we forget that sellers are people too, and that there is always a human element to something, and murphys law loves to kick in. It would've just been better off if he just admitted that he forgot to send the fish, instead of being a jerk about it.

Yikes! I'm sorry you had to go through that! I bought a betta from that seller maybe 4 or 5 months ago, with no issues... But now I'm definitely going to think twice before doing it again!
