Question Ebay Bettas?

I'm going to be setting up an NPT pretty soon, and that means I need a betta! :)

Does anyone have any experience with purchasing bettas off of Ebay? Are there any specific vendors you can recommend based on your experience?

Thanks!

i never have, but if youre looking to purchase a good high quality betta online i suggest going to aquabid.com
its a reliable website, just like ebay but for fish :)

If you don't mind a not show-quality betta, I'm sure there are breeders here who would be willing to sell you fish from their spawns as not all fish from a spawn are breeding-quality or show-quality. They're always looking for homes for pet-quality bettas. These fish will probably also be rather cheap compared to Aquabid or Ebay bettas.

True, aquabid is definitely a choice, but most bettas there, and as I'm starting to see on Ebay, are pretty pricey :/

Thanks for the recommendation. I guess a cheaper alternative is to find one here. Hopefully I can find a reasonably priced fish, shipping included.

Yeah, that's what I'm looking for, just a pet. I don't mind getting a show worthy betta or not, I just want a nice looking new friend:) I've become partial to halfmoon plakats lately, so hopefully I can find one of those

MrVampire181 breeds HMPK's. You should try contacting him. I don't know when his spawns will be ready, tho.
