The transhipper should receive my bettas today. I paid for express shipping, so I wonder what day they will arrive?

Also, I've been agonizing on what size tank to get for him and whether to plant the tank or go with fake plants, which my four bettas seem to do well in. My other bettas are in 2.5 to 4 gallon tanks, but I think I would like to get a 10 gallon tank for Midas (I think I'll name him Midas). Then I could put some companion fish in it. I've read myself silly doing research, but none of it sinks in. I just get overwhelmed. The very first betta I bought, Leo, died after I planted his tank, so I'm gun-shy. I need someone to hold my hand.

And... Should I buy the tank today and cycle it (which I've never done), or wait until the fish arrives and put him in my Aqueon 4 while I prepare the 10 gallon. This is what I lean to, in case the fish arrives DOA.

You'll probably get him Wednesday. Transhippers generally get the fish on Mondays but have a lot of sorting to do so don't get the chance to ship till the day after normally.

Imported fish are used to jars, so don't give him too much space up front but make sure he does have warm water as they are used to their natural environments temp.

I doubt the fish will arrive DOA but you may just want to play it safe

Catw0man, If you need a little diversion from your purchasing, and I don't know that this will help: but here's a link to one of my slideshows on my photobucket album you can peruse when you feel the urge to splurge! http://i1214.photobucket.com/albums/...n/6b6be3bf.pbw

He is pretty! I think I still have a ways to go to catch up to you! I "only" have 24 males. Plus two sororities = 21 females total.
