Of course, I'd like to make sure they're going to good homes.....and I'm pretty new to this forum, so I don't know everyone well.....are you experienced in caring for bettas?

Oh, and I've taken pictures of the fish I'd like to rehome, so I can show you what they look like.

I got them all on Aquabid.com.....from about 10 different breeders....lol....they are stunning compared to most of the fish we can get here. But, there were a few in the bunch that just looked different in person than in their pics....not that they aren't beautiful fish! And since I'm expecting another shipment later in March, I would like to find homes for a few of them.

Not to take away from MattsBettas or Logisticsguy.....since Logisticsguy is willing to ship in the winter, that's a great option! Anyway, I'll post some pics for you in a bit and you can have a look at the ones I have....have to get the kids to bed right now.

Buying local is always a good idea if you can find quality fish.
I bet many of those Thai fish are pretty darn nice.

It sure did cost a lot!!! Each fish was at least $20, plus sometimes a breeder will also charge you up to $5 for each fish to be shipped to the Thai transhipper. Then, the Canadian transhipper, Hung Pham, charges $10 import fee per fish. Add priority shipping of $35 to $55 and another $10 for heat packs.....

But, that said, they are amazing fish!!!

If you're interested in bidding on a fish on Aquabid (say if there's something in particular you are looking for), we could always have your fish shipped with mine once it arrives in Canada to save that huge shipping fee.

Anyway, let me post the pics I took....and you can let me know if you are interested in any of the ones I have.

I'll include the links to the original Aquabid listing (where possible) as well as the pics I took today (not nearly as high quality!)
