Anyway, since picking up your fish isn't an option, I would ask Hung about using FedEx.....whatever will get the fish there fastest is worth it. If they arrive DOA, you can get the cost of the fish back from the seller, but you won't get the postage or shipping fees refunded.
So....what other female are you going to get? Have you contacted 3dbetta?
I am writing an email to Hung about using FedEx instead of Canada Post but I'm not sure about contacting 3dbetta. Would I have to end up paying more than $20 to get them to close the auction sooner? I have a budget I need to try to keep with and if I want to get another betta as well I have to stick with it (I do have some room in case of extra costs however.)
I was actually just looking at the betta Kyurem had just posted! But I was thinking about getting a nicer male to breed the yellow girl to. Petto is getting older and if I have the opportunity to get a better quality male to make better quality babies, why not?

I really appreciate you and catwoman warning me about Canada Post. I don't buy many things online at all so I'm pretty clueless with this all, if you haven't noticed
And I'm really sorry to hear about your loss..
