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!

Catw0man- LOL don't think so...feel like I had to wait forever for these guys......the hardest bit was waiting for them to arrive back at the transhipper because until then I did not even know if they were still alive. Jodi-Lea rang me the minute they turned up to let me know that they were both fine and had just enjoyed a meal of live black worms. I was so grateful that she called me, put my mind at rest to know that they were alive and back in safe hands.

sareena79- Not sure if they were listed on Aquabid or not......our transhipper regularly imports batches of fish from Thailand and resells them, thats how I got this pair. It is a great way to get fish from overseas without the extra cost of import and transhipper fees ect. One day I hope I am brave enough to order directly from Thailand but so far even having fish shipped within the country has been enough to handle......one day though I hope I have the courage then there really will be no stopping me lol. Thank you for your kind words and thank Chum too :)

Corsica- Thank you They look even nicer in real life. Proud new mummy if you can't tell lol.

Tabbie82- Thank you! I am glad too at one stage I wasn't sure whether they would even make it back alive so I am terribly relieved!

kev- Thank you


All my bettas enjoyed a meal of frozen black mosquito larvae for breakfast, the new boy wasn't sure whether they were edible but once I finally managed to get him to take a bite there was no stopping him! The girlie tucked right in, she needed no encouragement!
