Thanks again everybody!
@Sena - Glad to hear that you are no longer losing any bettas. Hopefully, I don't have to lose any more. It is too heartbreaking to see them go... :(

@freemike - They were both from Thailand in a same shipment, but two different breeder. I think it is too stressful for bettas to go through such a long trip. :/

25 betta boys!
R.I.P. Little Red, Shinobi, Anakin, Ninja, Marco, Emppu, unnamed male, Chaos, and Goku

Also 2 Papillons (Cody and Maxx) and Shih Tzu (Muffin), chinchilla (Pichu), and roborovski hamster (Biscuit)

Oh it was bad - I felt like I was doing something wrong, with bettas dropping like flies x.x now everyone is healthy, and I only have 2 elderly males.

As for the stress of shipping - that's another reason I chose a canadian breeder/shipper :p although it was late, they lost my fish, I made it clear it wasn't going to be another day for them to come in, and they found them xD

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

Sena, I know exactly what you mean! So frustrating! Maybe some of them are naturally weaker than others. Oh and glad they found your fish! I had that happen to me once. I hate it! :(

Well El Dorado always had a weak immune system I had one betta, Dusk, now THAT was a weak betta. How he survived shipping and being in a cup? I dunno. Spartan survived a mystery poisoning. I love how our fish are varied :P

Sena, I am glad your 3 boys made it through sickness. It is such a great feeling when sick betta gets healthy again.

lol thanks!! Oh I know... It sucks to lose a fish, I mean i did recently but I got him (for free) on purpose, because either he'd die with someone who tried and cared, or he would live and be healthy again. Ufortunately he died... but hey, I cared enough to try =D no one wants a fuzzy betta! they want healthy and happy. blah!
But Georgie is doing good, and is a happy grumpy thing.

Sorry to hear about your recent loss... At least he was lucky to have you as his owner. Many bettas are not as lucky. :(

I saw a pic of Georgie. He is a cute little guy! Glad he is doing good!
