Keep them warm during winter

How do I keep them warm during the winter? I put male in the big cup and place cup in the big tub with heater. This black tub hold 12 big cups. I also stack second row on the top. I place the thermometer in the cup. The bottom cup is about 80F and the top cups is about 76F (good enough).

The white spots you see are not on the betta (outside the cup); these white spots are toilet paper that I used to dry the outside of the cup.

I have been busy sharing my betta with local betta keeper. Tomorrow I will ship 3 male to a member on this forum. I still wait on my wife decision to buy a new house, selling or renting the current house, or to buy a land and build it ourselves.

She has been keeping me from my next spawn: fancy spawn

First time I ship fish

Today my fish arrived to Mansfield, OH safely. Thank goodness. I was always worry that they are hungry, tired, and will not make it. But they did. I am so happy they arrived safely in OH.

It has been a long trip for these three plaket boys.

Look at the tracking information above:

I took three fish to sort facility post office at Seattle-Tacoma (Seatac) airport hoping to save them some hours. I drove 5 extra miles for my fish.

What the heck, from sort facility at the airport, my betta were delivered back to Kent, WA sort facility, which is 5 block away from my house. After Kent, WA sort facility, the fish are back to Seatac Airport to fly to OH.

They stop over in PA which is about 5 hours from Mansfield OH. Poor three guys. This was an extra long trip for them.

Next time I will take my fish to sort facility in Kent, WA; this is so much closer to me. I used to have my mailbox located there. Hopefully this will save my fish 6 hours and 24 miles drive from Seatac to Kent and Kent back to Seatac, and I will also save $1 on gas.
