Week 2:Process of waiting for import.

Unfortunately when my two bettas went to get delivered to my transhippers house. The transaction to my transhipper was under a different name, and she had overlooked my e-mails explaining to her it was going to be under my dads name. Since she didn't know the payment was from me, she never sent my fish. I had got a hold of her last Thursday, and resolved the issue. She planned on sending them on this weeks Monday... Well so I eagerly checked my mail all week hoping to get them. Well today I ran to the mailbox, being absolutely positive that they would be here.... but no. I ran inside my house to go on the computer to write my transhipper a letter, but saw that she had already left me one. The letter was to inform me that my little guy didn't make it and had passed away Monday morning.. It's really an awful feeling. I had even prepared his tank to match his colors, so you could imagine how disappointed I am. It's a real shame incidents like this happen. On the bright side, my lovely female is well and I'm expecting her next week. I've already picked out my replacement and added on another female. My betta dealer was very nice and supportive and my transhipper was nice enough that shes not going to charge me for the extra expenses for the female I added on. So I still do have things to look forward to...



My little giant, 3.1 inches. Wish I could of saw you grow more..

Oh I am so sorry about you losing your poor boy, it must have been so disappointing. I know exacting how exciting it is waiting for bettas to arrive so I can imagine how dissapointed/upset you must have been to find that he had passed away I am so glad that your girl is doing well though I hope she arrives happy and healthy for you

So sorry about your boy!
I only ever ordered online once and all four fish showed up dead :( I feel your pain. I had their tanks set up too and was super excited big disappointment.
Hopefully your other fish show up safe and sound! Good luck and he was very pretty!

Is your seller going to replace you with a new betta? And who is your transhipper btw?

If you are talking to me then I didn't have a trans shipper as they were just being shipped across the country. We took our money back as I couldn't afford to pay for shipping again.
