I just hate to order from outside the U.S. Poor fish have to travel from Asia, then transhippers, and then to you...

That's how they get to the pet store, too. At least, when you get them, they don't have to wait in an unheated cup.

Here's a pic I took in one pet store, an incoming shipment of bettas. Customers were rummaging in the box and tossing the bags around, I heard one giggle "whoops maybe I killed that one!"

He's a great looking fish. I considered bidding on him until I saw the little bid war.
Sorry you lost him!

I just had a miserable experience with an outfit called Korwhord. I missed out getting the fish and I was the only bidder. What a mess.

Not to mention the lying and general bad attitude. When I cool down, I'll compose some scathing feedback. Sorry that's all I can do.

I had some issues with Korwhord as well. His fish are always sick and die within a few weeks ($60 worth of show fish down the drain... quite literally).

I'm sticking with US breeders from now on. Imports seem to carry a lot of problems.

I have also had an issue with Korwhord's fish as well. My hmpk female got sick within a few weeks. Fortunately I managed to medicate her in time and she survived, but a few months later she passed away from illness again.

He/She is extremely good with communication though (at least for my experience)
