Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

@Tiki: You don't have to, yes its cheaper but sometimes its worth the payment for less hassle and imho I'd prefer that then risk betta death. I used Kevin once and we had such an issue I ended up having my dad drive me to Kevin's shop to pick up my girl. I don't plan on ever using him again.

@MaisyDawgThirteen: Transhipers are for when you buy bettas from overseas. IE: Thailand. You need to ship to a third pary who has permits and such to do international shipping.

Bettas:
Females: Morgana (CT), Gwendolyn (CT), Amethyst (CT), Hebe (CT), Iris (HMPK), Amphitrite (HMPK), Artemis (HMPK) Dottie (?), Lulubell (CT), Mirabell (CT) & Jubilee (HMPK)
Males: Cronus (CT), Tian (OHM) & Anubis (OHM)

Dogs:
Zeeva (Siberian Husky)
Binky (Samoyed)

Thai sellers ship to the transhipper, transhipper ships to you.

I recommend Linda. She has more experience than the others and packing method is perfect.

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.

Because it costs around $150 per box into the US (they charge $5 per betta and pack them in huge boxes). Also you need an import license which is expensive and you must live near an international airport.

OK, that's good to know. I see a lot of people use either Linda or Jennifer. I wonder how ones get the lisence to be a trans shipper. It would be cool if someone on here could do it.

Linda Olson

I very VERY much do not recommend Linda Olson. She is unprofessional, doesn't reply to emails, asks for varying degrees of shipping for the same order, loses fish, gets snarky about it, and then admits the fish are tanked in her home eating and "fine".

DO NOT USE LINDA. I am going to start using Jennifer in GA. I have never read one complaint on her... if you google, Linda has the most complaints. Wish I knew that before I bought these fish I still don't have... OVER a month ago.

Oh you people in the US, with your choices and options...here in Canada we only have one transhipper, Hung Pham. Thankfully he seems pretty good. I've used him once so far and he responded to all my emails immediately, fish were packaged perfectly, and Thank God he sent them fed ex, cuz ive heard so many horror stories about Canada post and fish.
Sellers I've received fish from are Psuit, taebetta, sirinutfarm, patsayawan, 3Dbetta, ttbetta, majcha, and Bettaakapes. All were easy to deal with and very polite, and all my fish arrived healthy and looked just like their picture. Really gorgeous fish. I have another batch coming soon, hopefully that goes just as well *fingers crossed*
