Ordered my new Betta Fish from Thailand!

Here is a photo of my new Betta Fish I ordered this week from Thailand! He is a Blue Fire Halfmoon Plakat. He will be here Friday and I will take a few photos once he arrives! I have a 5g cycled, heated and all levels perfect waiting for him! I'm very excited, as this will be my first Betta Fish!

You ordered your first betta from Thailand? I'm jealous haha

He is gorgeous that coloring is awesome!
Goodluck on him!

And do you mind me asking how much you paid the transhipper?

I am paying the transhipper tonight, and asked for a quote on both Express shipping and Fed-ex overnight. My fish will be shipped from Miami, FL to Asheville, NC so I will post once I've made the payment! =) The fish was $20 though, from Bettafishstore.com

Very nice fish. Ive ordered fish from Thailand a few times and had no problems other than stress and pale color upon arrival. Its a long way to go in a little bag so expect some loss of color which should come back in a few days. Take your time acclimating as the water can be very different. Good luck with your new fish.

Hey I grew up in Boone about 2 hours from you Cathryn. My Transhipper charges $35 shipping but she is also only about 6 hours from where I live now. Your boy is beauty. I am waiting on a Betta from Thailand myself. He should be here Tuesday or Wednesday.

I've always wanted to order from Thailand, but I have no idea how any of it works. I love the Thail bettas!

The problem with Thai's betta most often they are so young when they ship. When you got them, you have to wait for 2-4 months before they mature enough to breed. I ordered 8 bettas from Thai before and only big one I got is the female. She is too big that I have to wait for the male to catch up with her.

My experience too Tan. I have 1 girl so much bigger I'm scared for my boys still.

However the Thai have many advantages in breeding and I love the fish Ive got from Thailand.
