I've thought about aquabid a few times, but the shipping is always what gets me. Not only could it be harmful, but it's VERY expensive. I think I can find a betta I like just as much at petsmart. I do love to look on aquabid though... I can dream can't I?
They have beautiful fish on Aquabid. Yeah, it would be nice to have one but I've found some pretty ones at Petsmart and other places. They may not be "perfect" looking but are all beautiful in their own way and have such great personalities.
That and I learned that there is an International Beta Congress in America that has conventions for breeders and fans to go and look. I think you can buy fish there and you don't have to worry about the shipping since your moving them and can tell when they start getting stressed out.
