I hear ya about pet store ones - although my first betta years ago was a pet store betta that lasted about 1 1/2 years. He probably would have lived longer had I known about weekly water changes!! :(

I now get all my bettas from breeders. I'm more comfortable with doing it that way.

$61.00 for a singe betta is a tad rich for my blood, but more power to ya!!! Hope he arrives safe and sound and has a nice long life!

XD Oh I know it's expensive and I would never *usually* spend that much money ever on a fish, but the last few weeks I picked up a ton of over-time and I've been really working hard... and I've really really wanted a fish off aquabid for some time.I have all my bills paid off for the month, so I figured why not? :D

Whats the process like? The fish in Asia are such better quality but I figured dealing with a trans-shipper wasn't worth it.
The fish is nice by the way. I <3 marbles

It's actually really easy. Before I even bidded on the fish, I emailed one of the trans-shippers on the list just to ask what the process is because I didn't really understand it. I wasn't expecting an email back for a bit, but I had an e-mail back within 10 minutes! Anyway so you bid on a fish and win. You get an e-mail saying you won, then gives you the e-mail of the person who owns the fish, so you e-mail them and tell them what trans-shipper you want to use. The person then e-mails you back, gives you the total, then you pay him on paypal. Next, if you want to prepay the shipping of the fish to your house (gives you an early ship date) e-mail the trans-shipper and give them a heads up how many fish they have coming for you, and they will send you back a total and voila! your done! The fish is shipped the the transhipper, then the transhipper gets it to you :)
