Priority is fine. When it comes down to it, the packing method is more important than the shipping time frame.

I have received most of my shipments via Priority and I've never received a DOA or had a fish die from being shipped from me.
:V this! i've never had a DOA, or even someone horribly stressed from shipping. and one of the bettas shipped to me was a chronic tail biter, and his fins were the same when he got to me, as when he left, according to his previous owner. :3

Like a newbie, I forgot to look at their(bluebetta) reviews, if I had I would not have purchased them, but now that I did, I will just wait and see. I went back after Luimeril made their last post and read the reviews, most where pretty good/okay, a few(about 8) where negative, but if I have one fish with ANY abnormalities, I will write up a review. Lesson learned- do your research one who you purchase from.

i just happened to see a thread on another forum just yesterday. good breeders in my opinon include our very own Mr. V(who has a few spawns growing out), and the fella i got Todd from(84elmo2001). he sometimes sells groups of bettas for pretty good prices. i wish his shipping was less, but the boxes are huge. o.0 and well packed. uumm... there's a few others, but i always go for the US sellers who have good prices(read: that are cheaper with pretty fish and good reviews. lol)...

Well, what a huge disappointment I got today in the mail. Out of the 6, all where females, 3 where missing an eye, ALL have fin damage from fighting I guess. Other then that, they are nice fish, all mostly white with a little blue shimmer on the scales, 1 has a nice blue marble but she is missing an eye. I am soooo disappointed with what I got, I didn't realize that just because they where on a dollar action they where on "discount" With all the reviews people have been leaving about 1 eyed fish, don't you think that is animal abuse?

poor babies. :I i'm all for discounted bettas, but they should have been jarred months ago, if you read his auctions.

they all sound so pretty, though, missing eyes or not.

Well, that's what I though, I mean, the mother and father where so cute, and like I said, I didn't even think to read the reviews from the person selling them. Then you and a few other told me about the 1 eye thing, and I was like, oh great, my moms gonna kill me, getting her 1 eyed fish. Then they get here and of course, 3 little 1 eyed girls. Luckily moms not really mad, she understands, but I agree if you see them being aggressive with one another, jar them.

i'm a sucker for bettas with sight issues. one of my favorites was a partly-blind HMPK i had. he taught me alot about caring for bettas with sight problems, so if you need some advice, shoot me a message. :3

UGH, it just aggravates me to no end when I see a breeder only interested in getting your money. They're rude, they don't care about their customers. All they care about is moving the fish through their tanks. Disgusting.

Aww :( When your fish settle in some are you going to put pictures up? Just out of curiosity it would be kind of fun to put some of their pics in an album and see how they heal up in your care. (Up to you of coarse)

I've not seen or heard of a one-eyed betta.. I don't understand why someone would be selling them? Does this kind of aggression between the females happen when the grow out tank is too crowded or small?

I'm glad your fish made it to you safely, i'm sorry they were injured in the breeders care.
