lol catwoman. I only browse when I have no money! If I see a betta I want I watch the bids and when I have the money I will get it, but I keep myself from impulse buying by not even looking when I have money. From what I have seen you've got yourself some gorgeous bettas though

ok, I know I am probably worrying out of hand, but my bettas still aren't here. How long should they be ok? I know if they get super hot or cold that would change, but saying shipping condition were fine, if they were shipped Tuesday they should still be fine, right?

Got the shipment today. the 3 females were DOA, but the male was feisty and flaring while in his shipping bag. I had another friend that sent me a fish yesterday and also arrived DOA. Not a good day with 4 dead bettas.

Once my new boy calms down a little I will try and get some pictures and get them posted.

You may want to QT the betta before introducing them to the main tank.
Drip method and a drop of Prime suggested by VJM sounds great.

The surviving one is a male, so he wouldn't go into the community tank. He is definitely in QT. While most are in QT for a couple weeks I'll leave him longer. I think it was just getting stuck in the mail. He's still showing his stress strips and acclimating in these pics, but here's a few. I think we're going to name him Hades.

Sounds more like a bad week than. Everyone seems to be having bad luck with their bettas this week. Sorry about your girls yesterday. The betta in your avvie is precious
