And I have another question. I am no where close to a transhipper at all? Can someone explain to me what the purpose of having them for? Because I'm so confused on why I can't ship a fish from Thialand to myself?

Chard is in the classified section and his fish have won shows. Also you do not need a trans shipper.

Trans shippers are the ones that the breeders from Thailand have to ship to first (there's a reason why, I think it has to do with live animals coming in from another nation or something along those lines). You don't necessarily have to live near one. They will ship the fish to you once they get it. But you might have to pay them extra shipping fees.

At least that's what I've gathered so far. But I'm new to this as well.

Chard, now can you give me a link to where I could find his section?

It's actually in this website. Go to the bottom and click classifieds. After that go search the forum.

Just really curious about the show bettas - how can you tell you're getting a show quality betta? I mean, do they come with papers/certificates beyond just pet shop labeling or do you just take the seller's word for it?

I believe you have to either take their word for it or look at the qualities of betta your getting. So far I have heard there are standers for show quality bettas.

I see. I've seen clips of those betta shows where there're fish ranked as best in certain categories. I was kinda expecting there's at least a participant badge for the fish in case they do get sold...

I've never been to an showings, I guess you could say. I would love to go though. I feel like there isn't much going on in the east side of the states with bettas. Where you are located are there options?

Philippines. Most of the exhibitions I think happen in our neighboring countries rather than in the country though we have a few serious breeders. Every after show season, there will occasionally be an exhibit at my LFS's area - basically we can get some really fancy fish - or so I've been told.

I've never seen the fish myself so I can't say for sure if they're show quality or just pretty finned marbles like the guy in my avvie.
