Other than having a betta from wal-mart when I was younger, I am completely new to caring for them. I have been doing a lot of research about habitat, feeding and every other betta-related topic on the planet. I found some that I am very interested in investing in (pet-only purposes). They are located in Thailand...I am scared to death of having them shipped here for some reason. I am located in south Louisiana. Do any of you have personal experience with long distance shipping like this? If so... please share with me. Thank you so much in advance!!
