I received my first Thai fish today. The mail carrier actually called to make sure I'd be home to sign for him. Even suggested I pick him up in town because of the heat. What a perceptive individual.
He's an Aquabid fish, very small, a juvenile who might have been in the BabyBetta section at Petco. Glad I have some small pellets and frozen foods for him.
AND....he's not the fish I bid on! WTH?!
I can't get comparison pics this early and I know he's not colored-up yet, but it's obvious. I'm not sure how to respond. I can't send him back. He's a nice-looking animal, but I wouldn't have bid on him in preference to the one I wanted...<sheesh>
I suppose I should be happy he arrived alive, even if he is looking a little stunned at the moment. He's still in his cup floating in a heated tank until I can take pictures to send to Aquabid's complaint department (Lotta good that'll do..hah).
I only got him because three domestic breeders from this forum had unrelated misfortunes which delayed my intended purchases indefinitely.
I try not to air my tales of woe on here, but this was just too much. Thanks in advance for your empathy.
