My first aquabid betta! Meet Kirby the Halfmoon Doubletail

He was shipped here to California from Georgia. I was super nervous because we were having triple digit heat and he went priority shipping. I became obsessed with checking for updates on the tracking site and stayed home all day when he was to be delivered. The breeder I bought him from (Jennifer/Hopdiggity on Aquabid) packed him perfectly. She was also super friendly and had great communication, I highly recommend her!

Kirbly is 3.5 month old Halfmoon Doubletail. He arrived very feisty and in great health. He did chomp on his tail some, but that is to be expected. I went ahead and added a tsp of aquarium salt to his 2.5 gallon and 2 drops of aquarisol as prevention. He has already made a large bubblenest and is settling in wonderfully!

Here is a short video and pics, enjoy!

I love his flesh colored face and bug eyes

There is really no risk of getting ripped off if you buy from someone with a lot of praise. Next to the sellers username you will see some numbers in brackets. I will use my username as an example: LionCalie (1/1) <---click on the numbers and it brings you to this page which shows my buying/selling and feedback history. http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/vfb.cgi?&&vfb&Lioncalie

Lovely fish! He's like a little swimming rainbow! I had my first Aquabid buy transshipped through Jennifer as well and she's great! I love Aquabid but I don't think I'll be able to buy another fish off there anytime soon. Shipping in the U.S. is just so expensive!

I just bought my first rosetail halfmoon from the SAME SELLER! I mean, I paid her just minutes ago. Here's my new baby:

Glad to know she is a great seller. I've gotten TWO gorgeous bettas today, one from Aquabid and one from Ebay. It's been a good day.....CONGRATS on your lovely new pal! He is absolutely stunning!

I haven't gotten them from Thailand yet, I want to as they seem to have the crazy unreal ones, but I have bought from Chard a couple of times one was DOA but he was really great about replacing him and I love Rorschach. So no real problems in country anyway.
