Congrats on these results! If I may ask, how troublesome was it to travel with your betta all the way to Texas for this show?

I'm sure he probably shipped them there.

yep, i mailed 12 fish to the show in 2 separate custom boxes. It's not much different than how i would pack them if i were to drive them there myself. It's not too much trouble. There's an FAQ in one of the boards of this forum on how to ship bettas.

This has always been my biggest fear though. It is already nerve wracking to mail a betta....but to mail your best show quality betta!!....and to mail 12 of them!!!!!??? I think I would have a heart attack.

It was at first, but it' s gone well for me. Out of the 100 or so times I've shipped, I only lost two and that was due to a freak weather change. It was 40 when they left here, they were going to Alaska, so I put the extra hot heat pad in. When they were passing Seattle, it was 80 degrees outside...

Also the father of this spawn went to a show every two weeks for a couple months riding priority each way and did fine. He spent more time in transit back and forth than he did here.

well i have piles of fish, but limited space for keeping them separate. Right now the males need the isolation more. As far as size goes i think because the parents were runts these aren't quite giant sized. The bigger ones are around 2 and 1/2 inches and i don't expect them to get much bigger.

And to compound the space issue the Texas show's auction was not well attended because of it being on Easter so out of the 6 i expected to not be coming back, 4 are coming back.
