I had Linda Olson change the water (that was not being held 1 week) because she said it looked bad.

I have yet to import a Betta but I have been searching for one this past week. What are ur options on best breeders? Talking health of fish on arrival. Or is it just a risk no matter who u buy from?

Well, life is a fragile thing for Betta's as well as people.

I had one USA shipped Betta develop a tumor and I had to put it down, but that had nothing to do with shipping. So far all fish I had shipped to me survived, some arrived pretty cold in the spring..., and I don't overly worry when I acclimate them. I just put the bag into the spot where they are going, and after half an hour, dump him/her in.

Jeff,

Do I understand correctly that you do not acclimate, other than temperature matching?

Yes, that is true... My Betta's must be pretty hardy. Anyways when I do a water change, the PH after IAL has been in there is about 6, and the fresh water is about 7.5. I tend to not baby my Betta's as much as others...

Not much difference than getting struck with a good hard rain in the wild...

Jeff.
