My first aquabid purchase

Well, I didn't want to go that route, but the good people here convinced me to not be afraid of buying on Aquabid or overseas. I found & bought a red crowntail betta

Now I'm trying to line up a transhipper, sent an email to Linda Olson & am waiting to see what I need to do next.

I hope I made the right decision going this route

Congrats for taking the plunge! I'm sure everything will go well. Linda is great and the two times I've bought from Aquabid went super smooth. The sellers and Linda are all professionals and make sure the customer is taken well care of.

Yes, I won a red C.T. female yesterday on an eBay auction from here in the U.S.

Thanks for all the advice everyone ! I just finished replying to Linda's email & she has made me feel very comfortable going this way ! I guess it was just the unknown that had me a little intimidated.

Aw I'm so excited for you! Did the seller let you know when he would be shipping to Linda next?
The unknown is what had me intimidated at first too. I thought it'd be the biggest pain in the butt to try and import a fish. But now that I've researched it a little bit more its only the cost holding me back.

I'm glad you found one you truly love!! Lets see some pics! :)

I thought you wanted to spawn? And from my limited pet knowledge understanding, the bump on his topline is a fault..?
