Cool Betta fish Nick nack (pick heavy)

So I did it! I really truly did it!

I must say its 100% toxic for fish, to bad, would have looked awesome in my tank. But sadly the clay paint inc, would kill fish. But will look great in a rock garden inc!

The fish I am calling Captain. Because this ornament I am keeping and will be my picture example betta when I start up my sale thread some time tomorrow in betta fish classifieds.

Any way, here is the fish that I modeled it after. ( found him online)



The ornament is approximately 2 inches and a fourth. As seen in the ruler picks.











The lap top pick was so that you could see that its authentic. Lol The tip of the plant behind him, give him his two and a fourth inches.


Now the real question. WOuld you order one of your betta? I am starting the thread tomorrow if I get good feed back. Also charms and that will be added to the thread, when I make them. I will make sure to let everyone if I added anything new.

But all fish sold would be either your betta or your dream betta.

But ya any feed back?

Ps sorry for some of the glare.


5gallon, One male betta
10 gallon, full of baby fry/ one baby betta
34 gallon:2 peppered corydoras, 2 upside down catfish, 2 cherry barbs, two danio's, 2 platy's, 2 high fin platys, 2 red swords, 2 angelfish, 1 dwarf Gourami, 3 black skirts, two diamond tetra's and 2 gold Gourami.
And going to get, 2 cory cats

depending on weight, 1st class is significantly cheaper. That's what we use. It cost $2.07 to ship two solid clay chopstick rests from MI to NJ

Could you add a photo to your photo album? I can not see the photo of the nicnac here. I can see the first photo of the real betta, but non others. This isnt the first time this happened, but I cant fix it. Different browsers, reinstalling flash, and this time Im even on my husbands laptop that is window 8 and only months old. But I'd like to see it >.< if you don't mind putting it in an album or uploading the photo (Im assuming its directly linked to a photo site or something?)


EDIT: nvm, I see you already added an album, lol :)

It's very nice <3

If you have paypal, which you should, then just print the shipping label through paypal directly from the paypal payment received. Shipping cost is about 12% cheaper, and a tracking number is automatic and costs only 0.19 cents.

I think they're doing it automatically now, actually, the boxes we shipped this afternoon came with it.

Also, That price is also the same for a box with a plush or two inside.

Yes, paypal has included the tracking number automatically for a few years now, but if you look when paying it will show that it charges 0.19 for the delivery confirmation. It doesn't give you the option to opt out through ebay or paypal. I like it though, as it sends the shipping information directly to the buyer's email so you don't have to bother doing it

I don't have a paypal, my gram does, but that is because she has a bank account.

So I half to do everything buy check/money order, and bloody send everything Via usps.

Lucky though they really aren't that expensive.
Its like 5 bucks to ship flat rate for what I have.

first class, padded envelope what not plus tracking, will be under that. Since i don't see ware it could weigh more then 7 ounces. even if it does way ten, its still dirt cheep.
