I'm almost praying he doesnt have anyone to pair this boy with so I wont buy him, even though I probably will end up buying him. :( Somebody. please critique him so I have reasons not to buy! :)


He's a very beautiful fancy halfmoon. I have a few import and my transhipper was Linda Olson (I highly recommend her, she is fast to reply email and all my fishes are safe and sound). I would buy it but my paycheck only cover rent this month. And I dont have a tank ready for him

How much does it cost to use Linda as a transhipper? Does she ship priority? Was planning to use Kevin since he is closer, and his prices sound fair, but I might check with Linda too.

Here is the email she sent me, i bought 2 at this time ( i bought 5 imports total and she shipped all of them)

Express Mail (a 2 day delivery to your ZIP code), and Priority Mail (a 2 to 3 day delivery, but with no guaranteed delivery date).
Express Mail: Import fees @ $1.20 per fish $2.40 / handling @$2 per fish $4 / / shipping box $5 / heat pack $2 / Express Mail $36 / total $46.40
Priority Mail: Import fees @ $1.20per fish $2.40 / handling @ $2 per fish $4 / shipping box $5 / heat pack $2 / Priority Mail $16 / total $29.40

Each additional betta will ship for just $4.20 for Express or $3.50 by Priority

^^ Keep in mind that this is for 2 fish, you might want to add up the total yourself

That isn't too horribly bad. I mean it's a lot more than I want to spend, but I really love this boy! And I'm about to win a bid on a female I could put with him that is state-side, so I might have to do it.
So tempting!! :(

Well yea, so if you want both of them, then shipping is $30 for priority plus whatever price you getting them for. But be careful of priority in this weather though

I've always shipped priority without a problem, so I'm not really worried about it, just as long as I can get a heat pack included.
Thanks for all the info on it. I'm still trying to decide if I want him. I mean he's gorgeous, but thats a lot of money.
Oh boy, oh, boy, how I wish they had fancies like this in the states!

I love purple and some blues and what I like to call 'christmas' (dragon) , sometimes a marble. That marble is killer cute! :3

He is a Feather tail and has horrible ex-factor scaling. That would be all I need to see not to buy, let alone breed him.

what is ex factor scaling?

Would you suggest this one instead? its been a tie between the two all day, even though I really am not a fan of paying a transhipper, they both were gorgeous to me
