BUMMED, BUMMED, BUMMED!!!!!!!! For the first time EVER I have received a D.O.A. fish!!!! Have e-mailed the seller and sent pics - we'll see what happens.

I could just CRY!

Awe! I am so sorry! I am terrified to get a fish online for that reason. I would cry my eyes out if I got all excited to open the box and then find a deadfish. Hopefully the seller can work things out.

Thanks, guys! I too hope things can get worked out.

I just don't understand it - he had a heat pack & was in transit for less than 48 hours!!!!

I have been purchasing bettas - as well as other fish - on-line for years & this is the first time THIS has happened!!!!

When you open up the box (I suppose), is the bag the fish was in covered with a dark or black plastic over it ?

I don't really understand your question. He was double bagged & newspaper was wrapped around the bags. The box was insulated & had a heat pack that was still active. As far as I can tell, there was nothing wrong with the packing.

Heard back from the seller & she says she will issue me a refund. Hopefully, it's soon!

The seller has refunded the ENTIRE amount - including shipping!!!!

I just don't seem to have any luck with imports. This is the third one I have tried & I just don't get it. Although this is the first guy that arrived D.O.A., the other two sure didn't last long - 11 days & 3 months (both of those were from the same seller). Yet the American bred guys I get last a couple years or more!!! I think I will give up on imports. Thought for sure the third time would be the charm!!!

So I set up a nice 5 gal. tank with heat, filter & live plants for this poor guy - and you KNOW I am so NOT breaking it down!!! Went to see what my fav seller had for sale & found this guy that I am naming Mac after my favorite NASCAR driver, Jamie McMurray:
