Anyway, this is the current situation:
As I keep researching these cute little fish, I've started to get some of my friends and my boyfriend interested as well! I've referred them to this site if they do get one and I'll go with them (to make sure they don't fall for the tiny little fish bowl trick!!) to pick up their betta with my list of supplies I already have written down for the one I want!
Nathan is just DYING to get one of these beauties from thailand, we've had experience getting animals and feeders shipped to us before, but never a fish, so this will be an experience. He's interested in two specific fish at the moment--
and is trying to pick between the two!
Now, all three of these fish come from a website recommended by the bettysplendons website ( http://www.nicebettas.com/Stock_Shop...tpage&Itemid=1
) but I just want to make sure it looks ok? I have trouble navigating my way through aquabids, so I was drawn to the ease of this website, but if someone finds a big 'no no' we will look elsewhere
I have realized that my school has their own weird shipping facility where packages go to after they arrive, and sometimes they take days off or close at strange hours. This worries me, so I don't plan on getting my fish online for this very reason! I know there is a petsmart is savannah, and I just looked up a petco, though the drive would be a long one and I don't think it would be an option.
If I get a fish, it will be from petsmart. Things are looking a bit down again, but I will be happy if at least my boyfriend gets to have one :) When we webcam chat I will get to see the fishies!
