Angry How bettas are shipped...

I guess I was under the misconception that bettas arrived at the petstore in their little cups, but boy was I wrong. I thought that they had to be shipped carfully, because on aqua bid and such it's very expensive. I just wanted to share with you what bettas arrive at most petstores in...


And we wonder why the little guys are in such bad shape when we get them.

I know there isn't really anything I can do about it, I was just really suprised. If anyone has more information on the shipping process, please let me know, simply because I am very... curious now.

I agree, it doesn't surprise me one bit. I feel so bad for the little guys.

No, it's from google images. After more research I found it is the most common shipping method to pet stores.

I was told at one of the petstores I go to that they were shipped in tiny little bags. I guess I didn't realize just how tiny they were.

I use REAL fish bags, not those plastic torture devices they call bags.

Your kidding right?

I would never do that, I'm taking a break from breeding/shipping until school is out.
