They really need to have a transhipper feedback form on aquabid, or something, so people can make educated choices about who to use...
Great idea - is there a way you can make this sugggestion, just as sellers are rated on ebay...

I will look into it. I got my fish yesterday... thank goodness she was alive! The transhipper packed her so horribly, it was probably a very rough ride... :( She was SO stressed, and flipping out inside the bag... I tested her bag water and the nitrites were high... So I just started slowly acclimating her. She is still in the bag, but hopefully I will have her ready by this afternoon to go into her tank. She was breathing SO hard last night, even when she was totally still and no one was bothering her. I have kept the lights off to try to help.. and added plenty of stress coat to the water... She seems happier today, and like she wants out of the bag.... :) but what an ordeal!

Yes it is the little marble with the yellow spot on her head :) I named her eggitha or eggie for short cause she looks like an egg dropped on top of her head. I will post pics sometime soon :) I still have not seen her with the light on myself. Haha

Awww I just love that little fem! :) I am having my first betta shipped from Thailand in the next weeks. I'm a little nervous! I'm using Jennifer, but I'm worried the little girl won't make it or that it won't be the one I ordered, etc etc etc :) There's too many cool bettas :)

Shipping fish basically sucks...but the bettas are more than worth it when everything goes smoothly (not dead/right fish, etc)

Well you are definitely on the right track by NOT choosing my last transhipper.. who by the way, is KEVIN in NY! Don't ever ever ever ever ask for him. He's horrible. But that aside, how exciting you are getting your betta from thailand soon! Can we see a pic?

I am SO excited. My little piggy-nose should get here this coming week! I think she's the cutest little girl EVER! :)

The seller was really awesome because the auction closed before I could afford her and he held her for me for like 2 weeks until I got paid again! (It's Sutee, I love his bettas).
