My Thai Imports

this was my very first purchase from aquabid (platinum CT). as you can see, it came DOA.

Quote:
because the seller did not have another fish of the same type to offer as replacement, he was nice enough to give not one, but two fish (a pair of gold CTs). on top of that, i offered him a little extra to look at his friend's farms for a white CT, which he was kind enough to do.

i have been worried sick for the longest time waiting for these to arrive. not knowing it would take longer, i chose to use EMS shipment rather than the trans-shipper. i was surprised to see all three arrived alive after 9 days in the mail!

i will be showing pics of the acclimated fish tonight or tomorrow. this thread should auto update with pictures.

i would like to thank Chalerm Burnum aka Plakad on aquabid for working so hard to make this happen. he is an awesome breeder and wonderful seller. i would recommend him to anyone. have a look at his previous auctions and feedbacks: http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...1&1&vfb&Plakad

an arm and a leg. shipping is generally more expensive than the fish itself.

Nice!
I'm always afraid of buying from people online, but I'm glad you found a good person!
Since I can't find real nice fish, I like that there's this guy, even if the fish and shipping would cost a lot x3

I read somewhere that the transhippers are located in Ontario and it would only be like $10-15 for them to send it to you. Don't know if its priority or not.
