Darn, I'm on the western side of Canada, and if it's that much just to ship to eastern Canada... hm. I would ask for a detailed list of costs, to be sure.

Hey guys, thanks for all your responses, I haven't emailed him back yet because I've been busy running errands. I will email him about a single fish price, however this was the original response I got for asking IN GENERAL the cost:

"Hi Zoe, yes you will pay the price of fish to seller and the shipping price to me: shipping from Thailand to me = 15$ for each betta and i will reship bettas to your address cost 90$ for up to 6 bettas ( can put up to 6 bettas in the same box for 90$)"

Are these other transhippers in Canada? Judging from Cogeco I'd say yes, LOL

Oh, by the way if it helps any, I live in Hamilton, Ontario...it's at the southern tip of Lake Ontario, about an hour away from Toronto area


EDIT: Just sent an email to the above two people asking about their prices (and mildly complained about David's prices)...we'll see how this goes

May have to ask David for a quote on singletons. I know the breeder I bought from charges $5 per extra fish shipping in Canada. So $30 for 1, $35 for 2, $40 for 3.... and $55 for 6. David does have handling fees and such though.

Holy crap. I have thought about getting a real beauty. That's the shipping price for one fish? Or more? I'm afraid to ask what he'd charge to ship to Newfoundland... *shudder*

Thanks! I'll see what the other two people say first before harassing David anymore.

Have any of you looked at Canadabettas on AquaBid?

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...r&Canadabettas

They look like very nice fish & the feedback is good!

Here is a sample of one of their bettas that I think is really good looking:

Good luck! :)

Its pretty much the difference of a couple of dollars. As an example, I payed $30 for my boy to the breeder, and he is shipping him COD by bus to Nova Scotia for $29. I have no idea how it is for you though but I am sure it's like any other province. I got a cheaper shipping because we discovered Greyhound meets up with Acadian Lines. Sadly, the bus doesn't go to NFLD :(

You could always message those who trans ship to ask for a quote on shipping to your postal code, or message local breeders and ask just to prepare :)

I believe the $90 was for shipping 6 fish. Trans shippers have handling fees, box fee's and such they tack on to the final cost you pay them.
