Bettas that were lost finally arrived!

Hey there,

Well some of you would have read that a couple of Thailand imports were on their way to me last week but the courier bringing them put them on the wrong truck and they landed up in the opposite end of the state that they should have been. Luckily our Transhipper here does an excellent job at packing them and they survived the trip.

I ended up organising for them to be sent back to the transhipper where they would be un-bagged and put in tanks to recover for the weekend and then re-shipped. Well they finally arrived safe and well yesterday and I thought you might like to see them!

You must heaving a big sigh of relief they are finally here!

Nice pair. They look pretty healthy for having been on quite an extended trip.

Getting bettas through Jodi-Lea is like an addiction. They are such nice fish.

Wow. I've never seen silver bettas before. They're incredible. Are you going to breed them?

Saphira101- Thanks I thought their colouration was unusual and that usually gets me LOL. They were advertised as "Smokey Lace" pair.

LittleBettaFish- Phew tell me about it I was panicking it might happen a second time with them but thank goodness it didn't and they arrived safe and sound! Tell me about it! I was already addicted to buying bettas at the local pet shops but Jodi -Lea!!! What can I say apart from her fish are AMAZING and my betta addiction is more out of control than ever before! Now I don't even need to leave the house to splurge on bettas! Might just need some professional help! Mt tanks are full now (I've got 17 males and 3 females) I shouldn't be buying any more but yeah I wish myself good luck with that LOL.

Snowsong- Silver and black I know! pretty cool colour combo! Really wish I had the time and finances to breed.......not to mention space but I don't so they will just be pets.

I purchased so many bettas from her. It would have to be at least 40 splendens. It is so addicting and she gets some of (well probably the) best bettas in the country.

Luckily I am only into wild bettas now. Much easier on my poor wallet.

Ever going to try and spawn any of your showier pairs, or are you like me and just hoarding them all as pets?

LittleBettaFish- WOW 40 bettas, must have been one of her best customers! LOL. I have bought 3 pairs and a single male so far......in fact it was you that encouraged me to buy from her in another thread a while ago and I am forever grateful to you. I never had the courage to buy bettas that required shipping before you told me how reliable and good at her job Jodi is..........only wish I had discovered her sooner. Would love to breed some of them but am lacking the time, finances and space so yes all my bettas are just pets. That is awesome that you have wild type bettas!

percyfyshshelley- Thanks :) I couldn't resist their colour! Well worth the wait.........you can imagine the anticipation waiting for them to arrive. They don't seem phased over the ordeal......... gobble down some food last night and this morning!
