Lol. I don't see you being rude much it's usually newer members who are fast to react to something.

Some of the older ones tend to react quickly to stuff, too.

The shows are usually fairly spread out, that's why people would have to try to figure out how to get their entries in.

How DOES everyone get their livestock into the shows? I'm sure it's a lot different than shoving a goat in the van and driving to the county fair. lol

I think I know which website you're talking about. When I was first getting interested in bettas, I was surfing for more information. I came across a site that was lambasting a person for having extra fry. They were saying horrible things, like how dare you not properly prepare, you're playing God etc. I was appalled! I think somebody actually told that person to go kill themselves! That site must not have a moderator.

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.

Actually that probably WAS a moderator. I double bag my fish and ship them in double insulated boxes. Normally when sending to a buyer I write on the box LIVE FISH 72 hr. heat pack Enclosed 68 degrees to 88 degrees I figure that way the postal worker doesn't freak out when they pick up a box with a warm spot on it and they know piority is supposed to take 3 days. If they can count that would mean the heat pack is only good for that three days. When sending to the shows they don't want you writing live fish because certain shipping companies have issues with the shipping of live animals. They have trained or supervised people at the shows to unbox and acclimate your fish while keeping track by numbering them according to pre-prepared lists that are already registered with the show chairperson. They get put in what looks like beanie baby clear containers in their appropriate section. I almost made it to a show in Texas last year but I couldn't get my car fixed in time. Maybe this year.
