Hi, I just imported many betta fish from Thailand and this is the result. The shipping was stressful on some fish and some other went through it like it was nothing.
Out of 37 fish (2 gifts) 2 ended up dead, one shortly after arrival and one of the weakest from yesterday died during the night and I found him this morning.
Some of the fish are just like the photos from Aquabid, some look much better than their photo, and one looks much worse than its photo on Aquabid.
Overall I am happy. The surviving fish are adjusting and eating. All of them have eaten this morning so that's good, I think. One white betta still is quite weak but he seem to be getting better.
Anyone know the water parameters from Thailand? I measured the salinity in the bag and it was zero, but the TDS showed up as 380ppm or so.
Here are some of the pics. They are very hard to take in photo because it's dim light for now and they move a lot. Once I get better pics of the others I will post them.
This one is my vaforite:
This big ears was a nice surprise, he's so beautiful, light pink color in his fin:
This one has nasty fin rot, so I am treating him with kanamycin because it's bloody:
and this one has a popeye, so treating him as well:
