Aemaki: did you get your fish ok from Julie? I'm curious to see if she's changed her business practice or if I was just a mistake: she was very hard to get a hold of and when she did email me she didn't tell me much. Then, after paying her for shipping, I had to pay the USPS an additional fee on delivery cuz she couldn't calculate Express properly....or she was trying to make it "look like her fees were less..." I'm curious but also a bit worried for you since, because believe it or not, your actual express shipping seems a bit under priced....
I only use Linda Olson now and have had no issues.
None of my shipments, including the one Julie helped with, had any DOA fish...bettas are extremely hardy :)
I will keep my fingers crossed and good wishes sent to you for a safe arrival!
