Importing is cheaper for me. I just buy the fish and pay the overnight shipping charge ($5) and then pick them up from Linda :)

While we are on the topic of Aquabid. Is it common for people to do partnerships where they split the cost of an imported pair one person breeds them and the other partner either gets fry for free + Sh or then gets their turn breeding them? Obviously it would have to be someone you trust but I think that it would be worth it. 30 for pair 5 for shiping and 35 for usa shipping thats 70$ all together but only 35$ split in two.


MrVampire181: I am very jealous that you get imported fish for so cheap! XD I dont know of any breeder, transhiper, club in my area let alone my state :C

The closest one to you is Julie Tran in California. I'm not sure what you mean but some people trade pairs.

Would it be cheaper or more expensive for the fish to be shipped to the uk?

Depends. I'm not sure there's a transhipper in the UK. You'll have to do some rsearch on it. Shipping is the same $5 from Thailand to your country.

Yup. Unless the transhipper is close enough for you to pick them up.

There are some breeders in the UK so if you can find them and find a betta you like then shipping will be cheap. The best thing to do is go to or join the ibcbettas. They have every registered breeder and all, So you can find all breeders, Even in the UK... You dont have to buy from AB..
Also if you look around and find a betta show or fish show with a betta show involved.... A lot of the people do not want to pay the shipping to get the fish back home! And you can get a winning betta for 15 dollars...

If you do have to go to AB, Then this is how it works....
If the fish is 20.00 dollars then you have a 5.00 dollar import fee to get him/her to the UK. Then you will get an email saying which trans shipper the fish was sent to, When it was sent out, Etc...
Okay so now your fish is going from thailand to your trans shipper.
Now you have to contact the trans shipper or let them contact you.
There will be a fee of 4.00 dollars a fish for all the handling they do and there will be your shipping fee! Which you want 1 day shipping. The fish just got sent around the world so.. And you dont want him sitting in a box at a post office.. Anyway so usally 1 day shipping is around 30.00 dollars!
So now you have 20.00 for the fish + 5.00 import fee + 4.00 handling at trans shipper + 30.00 for trans shipper to ship 1 day, So now you have spent 59.00 dollars to get a fish to your door step.....

I hope this help

Prices vary from transshipper to transshipper.

Lindas prices:
$2 handling fee per fish
Overnight shipping $30ish
$5 box fee

That's off the top of my head....I'm sure I left some stuff out.
