Favorite AB Sellers and Transhippers.

So, just curious about people's fave sellers and transhipers and opinions.

For sellers, I've used Chaba, Siamimbellis, Korwhord and Bettakapes. I like working with Korwhord and Chaba most. Their fish are lovely and they're so friendly to talk to.

I've used two transhiper, Jenifer in GA and Kevin in NY. Jenifer is lovely and great at what she does, Kevin not so much, i'd not reccomend using him to be honest.

So what about you guys?

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)

I love working with Chaba and Ploybettas. I will never use Korwhord again.

I use transhipper Linda Olson since I'm about a 30 minuet drive away. She has the best packing method of any breeder/transhipper you will ever find. Also she doesn't unbag the fish like Jen does (BAD, Thai sellers have special treatments in the water that keep the bettas alive in the bag). She will rebag if they are kept with for over a week. The biggest complaint with her is lack of communication... honestly just pick up the phone and she'll answer.

I'll be looking at buying from Ninebettas this summer. He seems great!

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.

The four fish I ordered were shipped to the Thai transhipper. Females arrived DOA. He quickly sent the replacements. I got my fish. The red dragon female had a bad gill infection and died a few days later. I received another female in the shipment only for her to arrive DOA again. The two males died when I came back from a week long trip with no previous signs of illness.

So I got screwed out of $60. The last remaining female only lasted a few weeks before she died as well :/

Yeah I'm sticking to Chaba and Ploy mainly. I'll be looking at other sellers soon.

I purchased some reds from him last year. Very big fish (not giants) and very healthy. The male lived up until a few months ago (imports have a harder time adjusting and die sooner than other bettas).

I loved that pair and I had also had a black pair from him. Same deal, big, healthy, and long lifespan.

i've only bought from one person on aquabid, but i adore the fish i got from him. 84elmo2001

his prices ain't that bad, and his fish are quite beautiful. i adore Todd. his communication was good, and Todd was bagged in the blue water stuff and arrived safe and sound just two days after he was shipped. :B

only issue i have, is the way he boxes. it was a HUGE box, for one tiny little baggy of fish. :I he used the pink insulation crud they use in walls, too. :I i mean, he was packed well, but it would have been cheaper if he'd used a smaller box. .3.

For transhippers do you have to use the one closest to you? That would be Kevin and I have heard a few people complain about him.
