Has anyone bought a betta on ebay here?

And if so, what were your thoughts on it?
I found a GORGEOUS boy on ebay and it's only a state away from me so should get here really fast in shipping (a worry for me).
However, I've never bought anything live on ebay before. Has anyone else?

I've not bought on ebay...but like ALL things with ebay I would imagine there are some people who have had OK experiences and others who have had horrible experiences.

If possible, contact the seller directly for more information, and ask specific questions (i.e. how will the betta be shipped, will it be shipped with a heating pack, can you get additional pictures of the betta, etc.)

I'd imagine the seller's responses to your questions would give you a better idea on what you may be looking at.

I've not bought from ebay but from aquabid, my boy Xerxes came from overseas just for me. You should look at the feedback (reviews) see if its all positive, and if there are other betta ones. Don't let them ship until after the holidays (past new years) if you can, to avoid it sitting at the post office on holidays or getting lost in chaos of last minute holiday shipping.

They have 900 feedback and only 1 negative in the last year and that was something out of the sellers control. The bidding doesn't end until after Christmas anyway. They have probably 18 or so very pretty bettas but this particular one just caught my eye. They say it's from Thailand but they've already got it.
