Baibuawbettas.....I must tell you that I've had 2 bad experiences with that seller. I've tried twice to buy a fish from them and both times it didn't happen.

The first time, after I had paid the fish wasn't in the shipment, I contacted the seller. He apologized and said that he couldn't send my fish because it was sick....and attached a picture of the "sick" fish. Except....the picture was NOT of the fish I'd bought! So, I asked for a refund and questioned why the picture was not the right fish. I got the refund, but no response to my question.

Then, a few weeks ago, I thought I'd give them the benefit of the doubt and try buying another fish (they do list some mighty attractive and unusual specimens). They never tried to contact me at all after I won the fish....not one email. If I hadn't had the previous bad experience, I of course would have contacted them myself to finalize the purchase. But, under the circumstances, I decided to wait and see. So, I never heard from them....and never ended up paying for the second fish at all.

I certainly won't bid on one of their fish again....their business practices seem "fishy" to me....lol. Just thought I'd let you all know of my experiences so you could take that into consideration. :)

Which one were you originally talking about? The boy I posted today, or the yellow marble that I actually bought? The one I posted today was Baibuawbettas, the yellow that I bought is from betta2day

total would genarlly run you about $50 for a single fish. Price of fish, $20, shipping to the US $5, and then a $5 box fee from transhipper, plus around a $3-4 handling fee per fish, then $15ish for shipping. It's smarter to buy multiple imports at once that way the cost of importing gets spread over multiple fish. You're paying around $50 for the first fish and than only $8-9 per each additional fish. ($5 from seller, $3-4 fee from transhipper).
My total for importing 3 fish from the transhipper to me was $46(ish) for overnight through UPS from Julie Tran, $15 for shipping fees from seller to transhipper, and then of course the cost of each fish.
It's somewhat pricey, but if you can afford it, it's definitely worth it!

I was talking about the one you bought. I entered a contest where the prize is one aquabid betta for 60$ or less, and I wanted to see if there were any other ones from the same spawn that looked like him. And yeah, it was Betta2Day.

@aemaki09 I just wouldn't have felt comfortable if I hadn't let you know of my experiences....I mean, there may be others who have had a positive outcome with this seller (they do have some positive feedback...), but I certainly didn't. I don't like to speak badly of others...maybe there is some explanation for how they've dealt with me....but, I would feel horrible if you went ahead and bought the fish and had something similar happen to you.

Yup, pretty pricey. As great as these fish are I think I'll stick to my local Petsmart...I saw so many pretty bettas there yesterday.

Haha, yeah! It's pricey! I can't really afford to do it either, which is why I never did it until a couple weeks ago. Now I'm hooked. This will be my last shipment fr a while though.


Catwoman: thank you. I would be irate if I had to deal with a seller that pulled that crap. Actually, I think I'm dealing with one right now, but with plecos. Seller hasn't contacted me in 4 days since winning the auction. I know with my auctions, I keep a close eye on them and know when they are ending so that I can contact the buyer straight away and get things shipped as fast as possible..I don't know why other people don't want to do the same.
