The costs are the cost of the fish and 5 dollars exporting (to the breeder)

2 dollars handling
2 dollar import fee
5 dollar box fee
2 dollars for a heating pad if necessary
and then 20 something dollars for shipping (all that to the transshipper)

over all, you're looking at 60+ or so dollars for him all the way from thailand to your doorstep.

I've bought my first boy from aquabid, and I've gotta wait about 2 weeks before he's exported. I'm guessing things should go smoothly, though you never know.

There are also lots of breeders in california. You could possibly get a fish more locally but just as nice for like half the price.

All my bettas are from AB :) I literally just paid $56 to a transhipper for 4 bettas... the cost of one of those bettas was $20 + $5 ship fee to the US.
