I got the two most amazing pairs from profish on aquabid, as well as a free female from Jennifer, my transhipper. She was generous enough to throw this girl in at no charge, and she is BEAUTIFUL violet color I've never seen. Deep blue with a slight pinkish-purple hue.
I'm in love with bettas all over again! Once I find my camera I'll be posting some photos and videos in the photos section.
I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? Where you just fall in love all over due to a certain fish/fishes/ or circumstance?
One of the males in these pairs auctioned for 120 or more I think, profish was just generous enough to offer him to me at a fraction of the price. Between the generosity of him and Jennifer, it reminded me... betta people are awesome! I took a little break from the forum to deal with some personal issues/life in general, but I think I'll be more active again.
Here is Jennifers site in case anyone needs a reliable transhipper. She also sometimes has auctions on aquabid under the name Hopdiggity.
