Hey guys! I just recently bought two bettas to add to my collection off of Aquabid, but am unable to get ahold of the Canadian transshipper (seems like I have been waiting for ever for these guys to arrive, but it has only been about a week...) Here are the new additions :)

Black/Copper HM male


Purple HM Female

Can't wait until they arrive. Anyone had problems with delays in shipping? Seems the last time I ordered one he was here almost right away...

My first spawns were HM x CT crosses to create a red copper Halfsun. I got excellent color but fins never improved and the line died out. I purchased some red copper HMs/DTs from a breeder in Utah and worked on those for a bit but again nothing great and I lost my touch for raising bettas (it was because my brother took my 30 gallon because I was taking a break from breeding but didn't give it back). Then a year or so later I purchased two steel blue HMPK bettas and managed to get 30 fish from them. Then I spawned a purple HM from Karen and the steel blue female and was rewarded with 30 extremely nice fish. One of whom has survived three death waves and seen my bedroom, the outdoors, and the current fish room. She's a little over a year old and still going strong (her siblings unfortunately passed away in my last death wave).

I wasn't successful with imports until I got my white pair in March. And now I have over 75 of their fry in two spawns growing out. Once the pair recovers from the hexamita infection they're going to be spawned one last time before I do the father-daughter mother-son crosses.

Not the best fins or form, but his color! He's almost purple! O_o most of bettaakapes' steel blue betas have a very distinct purple hue. I just saw another with very nice fins.... Wwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnttttttt

Bettas are big here in CO. I know of a breeder in Westminster working on reds, a breeder in Boulder, KadenJames on this forum is in the Springs, Linda Olson in Thornton(go through her when buying bettas on aquabid), and Im in Aurora. I know one other person will be starting their breeding project soon.

I work on reds, marbles, blues, whites, multi color, platinum, dragon, masked irids.

You must be dealing with this guy: "Hung Pham ( topqualityfish@yahoo.ca ) phone 905-358-2525" as he's the only transhipper I've seen listed for Canada.

I bought a betta at the end of April, and he told me his next shipment is at the end of May. He offered to meet me in Mississauga to deliver the fish but hasn't told me his price (I asked but he didn't answer that question).

I've found he's not the greatest communicator and doesn't always reply right away to emails. If it's been a few days since you last emailed him, I'd suggest sending another message or even giving him a call. I plan to email him again next week asking for an exact meeting date.
