Yes, they have been through a lot with this shipping in the dark. Keep them in a dark area and slowly introduce them back to light over 30mins, then start accumulating them to water (or whatever the breeder prefers you do)

thank you, i'll have to do that in my room where i can shut out the sunlight. its going to stay in the 2.5 gal in my room anyway. had a false start for the betta, the betta wasnt shipped yet. so im still waiting for a shipping date. good news is that $20 is express option from thailand->Montreal.

Agreed with Neil D!!!

Here's someone I'm in love with...

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...sct&1310021835

Gosh, it looks like he's wearing lipstick... ahh.... i'm in love I've always gotten petstore bettas, and some of them have grown into beauties (like Kenji, who is in my pic), but I have to admit, aquabid bettas do have a certain punch... :)

YEAH..he has arrived safe and sound and home...so pale when i took him out of box, but very active, waited 20 min to adjust to dim light, now he is floating in his temp tank for qt. his color is already comming back...oh how awesome...will post a picture asap...

question for fellow AB imported buyers, is it normal communication for the seller to offer for sale IAL tea bags?? 250 for $25 is this a good deal, also now offering "fairy shrimp" eggs, supposedly will hatch in fresh water 2-3 days for fry food, $25 for 1pkg containin approx 30,000 eggs. Here is the info below:
Protein 65 %
Carbohydrate 18%
Fat 5.07%
Carotenoid / astaxanthin 114.3

Any info on these??

sorry, i still have that tendancy to refer to some animals with "it". last set of pets me and my brother had were 2 snapping turtles when we were young then 2 hamsters. the hamsters were fun but the store employee said both were male..... wrong. mine (female) killed the male when she got pregnant (or more territorial) and then killed herself by starvation. she severed/chewed off the plastic roll wheel spokes joints to leave an intact but free rolling wheel and an octpus-like ornament that once held the wheel. it was rather funny to see how well she separated the exercise wheel at the time but we all know how well hamsters digest large ammounts of plastic. i imagine its wasnt a very good end for her .
