OMG! I am so excited!

Last month I bought three new bettas on Aquabid and their shipping has been delayed for weeks due to bad weather. I just got an email with the tracking information and they will be here tomorrow! My boys are finally coming home!!!!!

How wonderful! Are they coming from Thailand? Are they male, female? Will they make 11, then, for your fishes? Keep us posted. One more Q: Is this your first time on Aquabid?

They are coming from a US breeder, all male. I have already named them and included them in my sig- they are part of the eight listed- Picasso, Monkey and Nate. Yep, this is my first time using Aquabid!

Any tips/ suggestions for tank prep? I've had the tanks ready for weeks now, but with the weather delay I am wondering if I should do any water changes before they arrive?

Thanks! I am totally bummed, though, because I didn't get them yesterday. I paid for express and the tracking info said next day delivery, but they aren't here. Tracking info hasn't been updated, either. This is stressing me out. I'm thinking I may be the type of person who just has to buy her bettas in store, because this shipping stuff is stressful! I also have a boy (Oz) that I adopted from Moonshadow that was shipped yesterday. I am so worried about the 4 of them and am hoping they make it here ok!

I am waiting for a shipment of Blue Pearl Shrimp. They should get here today. This is the second time I had livestock shipped, Shrimp again. Hopefully yours will arrive today, also. There is nothing you can do but wait, so try not to stress. It is exciting, tho!!!!

3 of the 4 are here!

The new Aquabid boys arrived about 30 minutes ago and are alive! Very pale from the trip, but are being acclimated now. Their heat pack was still a little warm when I opened the box, so I don't think they got very cold. This waiting is/was so stressful! My adopted boy didn't arrive yet, so I'll be worrying about him until he arrives. I will post pictures of the ones that came today in a bit.

That's good news, Tabbie!!! My ten baby Shrimp arrived this afternoon, too!! And one of my original three is kicking out eggs as I type. I got a good phone video clip of it. Sorry, I don't know how to post it.
