I've seen some of the U.S. transhippers mention an extra charge per fish....but I'm surprised he said only 6 fish.....I've had a shipment of 36 fish and there was no extra shipping per fish (whatever it cost for the box of that size to be shipped was what I was charged).

The $5 fee is for the Thailand transhipper. Most Aquabid ads will say there is a $5 per fish fee for each fish to be sent to the transhipper in Thailand who then sends the fish to the transhipper in the destination country (in our case, Hung Pham in Canada). Personally, I have found that quite a few of the sellers will not end up charging that fee even though their listing may have said they will. Just depends on the seller.....so you still have to be prepared to pay it.

I really like this girl. It says she's a "White Monster." What is meant by "monster"? The male I bought was described that way too.
EDIT: Oh, I see. It means they have a white face. That makes sense. I love the white faces so that I can see their eyes. :)

"Monster" just seems to describe a marbled/Koi kind of appearance.....any fish described as "monster" is one I usually look at right away because you never know what cool pattern or color combination it might have. Maybe one of the members who show fish or breed would have a better definition.

It was originally reffering to any large Betta or White faced Green one. Now any Betta with a White face regardless of other colors is reffered to as a Monster. Monkey face and Pied are a few other references to White faced Bettas.

Thanks for chiming in there! I didn't know it had to do with the face at all....now what about "Panda" ones? Just another reference to white faced bettas?
