Of course, I would never ship fish myself.....only instructions in unmarked boxes! lol....however, this pair was shipped directly from Aquastar to a breeder in the States and no international shipping laws were harmed in the process!

YEAH, DON"T TELL A SOUL!! I just wonder what it was like to have Guppies and Bettas in Germany or Russia years ago. There wasn't any prepared food to buy or baby brine shrimp hatcheries. And if you were caught they would confiscate the fish and I'm sure their were dire consequences for smuggling them in.

i've actually come up with a decent way to smuggle a betta across borders: take a thermos and fill it with room-temperature soup (milk-based soups rather than broth-based soups due to the opacity) get the betta in a SECURE tight bag and place him in the thermos, obscured by the soup. now, if border guards ask to search your car,all they'll find is a thermos full of yummy soup, unaware of the fish inside. once you get across the border, get him out and get him in a proper container.

Leave me out of the smuggling business. Years ago I did several jobs repoing cars that for some reason didn't have functioning gas gages. After the third one I politely asked them to get anotherdriver. $200 for just driving a car 75 miles or so and dropping it off isn't bad money but I don't like to think about what was in the gas tank and I like to sleep at night knowing I didn't get in deeper. Or possibly gotten pulled over and went to prison.

Wow, seriously? It probably would have taken me a lot longer to catch on...lol...I'm dangerously naive sometimes. Good for you that you got out of whatever was going on there....that sure could have ended badly....
