Same here. Odysseus is the only HM I've ever seen in Canberra, and I'm lucky the guy who sold him to me likes me, so I only had to pay $11.50 instead of $22.50.

You want anything other than a VT ($10) or a CT ($15) here, you'd better have the internet. :p

Life.

-sighs-

I might get my first CT tomorrow if he's still there. He was actually the first CT I liked, they kinda freak me out to be honest. But this guy looked like the American flag, he's a marble with blue, white, and red. :)

The price for fish here is like this Halfmoons > Super Deltas > Plakats > Crowntails > Veil Tails. And usually at my LFS they have some weird species of Betta, I've seen them selling a pair of Imbellis once, for around $100.

$100 for an imbellis pair?! Only a pair of channoides is worth that much, they are stunning. :D

Micho, if you can pay for shipping try here:
Bettas - Reptile and Fish Canada Online
They sell male halfmoons for $7.50.. and it says no colour choice but Sena bought from them and said the lady is incredibly nice and asks what colour you want anyways. xD

taking a break from fish-keeping.

BeautifulBettas is in Vancouver, and she has some gorgeous babies. I think they were a halfmoon spawn. she's SO CLOSE TO ME but international shipping costs are too high i think, and so i dont think she's shipping to the US. but you guys should look at her babies! its the 007 spawn log

Sadly I do not own a credit card, and half of the time, me and my sister will be at school and my mother is at work, so if the fish arrives during that time, it's gonna be a dead fish. Plus, I don't think my parents are happy about me buying fish online when I get buy fish from the pet store. >______>

Halfmoons! Where art thou?

Sister wives... ugh. Honestly most people on TLC are just like "haha look at me I'm on TV". Isn't TLC supposed to stand for THE LEARNING CHANNEL?!

On the bright side I'm gonna set up two 6 gallon tanks to raise shrimpies in AS SOON AS MY ROOM IS DONE. UGGH.
