Okay i thought there was a thread on aquabid already but i dont see it, and i dont think this has to do with that thread.
Anyway so after talking with trans shipper's and talking with the thai breeder's. I have found out so much, And just thought i would pass it on.
So it all started when i bought my first bettas oversea's, And found out you have to pay 2 different people. This got me looking into everything, And threw out the year's this is what i came up with.
Think about all these thai breeder's and oversea's breeders. They dont no english if they do it's just enough to post a fish on AB, And send a email to you that only answer's half your question's. So this is what happen's there are broker's who will get paid by the breeder to post everything and email back and forth. Or its a real broker who buy's the fish from the breeder for 2 or 3 dollars american money and sell's it for 35.00 american dollar's. So the next time you see a fish dont just click buy now. Go email the breeder ask him if he could take 20.00 or 25 for a pair or 10 or 15 for the one fish. Also you have to think about this, the thai breeder i talk with said that there is a big flea market type thing except it's a fish market and he said it's as big as a football feild sometime's and these bettas are selling for 2.00 or 3.00 dollars american money then turning around and putting them on AB for 25.00 or 35.00. Bettas are a huge market what can i say it's a little full of color fish with a bad attitude everyone is interested.
Now if you buy from a good breeder that really care's about the fish, and all that you will be buying into his line. that he has worked so hard for over the year's. so it can be well worth it but just watch who your buying from. just because they have a good rating dont mean anything. beside's they made thing's right if anything happen. but that dont tell you the quality of the fish and genetic background i just wanted to share with everyone because i no it can add up quick ordering from oversea's and can make people nerves to where the end up not ordering because they not sure of breeder and other thing's..
