Cool Series of shipping + aquabid questions..

1. If your state transshipper isn't doing it anymore, what do you do?! Is there a way to get a fish, even?

2. Why can't fish be shipped directly to a home?

3. I'm located in Washington. Vancouver, WA right now, but I'm from Seattle and have a car to drive to other parts of the state/Oregon etc. Can anyone help me out? lol

4. Does anyone know where I could post to trade or sell a 20 gallon long tank and soooo many accessories for a few smaller tanks and heaters? Is anyone in my area interested in doing this? I also have a HM mustard gas that I am looking to re-home/exchange if anyone is interested =] He's about a year old and has never been ill. He's a super nester too! He's my avatar.

5. Has anyone ever had a problem with transferring money to another country? Such as them not getting payment, you getting ripped off or not refunded if your fish was DOA? etc.

Thank you for any and all information you can give me! Also if there are any other betta nerds or cool people in my area feel free to PM me =]

you don't have to get a transhipper in the same state, I got a fish shipped priority to me from Jennifer (hopdiggity) and it only took 2 days and she's in georgia
how much would you want for tank and stuff and betta? I'm just a bit to the east of vancouver

Well I currently have two fancy plakats in the 20 gallon long tank, and I was hoping to trade it for two smaller tanks - 2.5 to 6 gallons each. I have one giant adjustable heater, a divider, two filter systems, a bubbler, a tank scrubber, and a siphon cleaner that I would all not need. Probably other stuff too lol. I'm not looking to make money, just do an exchange with one or more people who want a bigger tank and may want a HM (or maybe delta) MG. I'm trying to add more plakats to my group. Depending on who wants what and if I can get smaller tanks I would name a price. It'd be cheap.

The transhipper in WA said it costs them about 200 to do this and he'd only do it for a bunch of bettas. Does it really cost 200 dollars plus the cost of a fish to ship from Thailand? Because that's obscene!

they probably have to pay a standard fee each shipment they get, and it probably costs him a lot because not a lot of people use him since he doesn't really have a reputation of being polite. I tried sending him an e-mail once asking about prices and such and he never even bothered to reply.
I have 2 marineland 5 gallons, the hex and the corner unit, might be willing to trade, or maybe 1 and some cash, not sure, have to think about it, lol

He said the customs fee is 165! Yeah he wasn't polite at all but maybe now we know why! 0_o

Well let me know. I'd probably only be interested in the corner unit. I also have a solid banana colored HM in a 2 gal tank with a heater, and blue/white/purple marble HM in a 2.5 gal tank with a heater.

I'd be willing to ship if anyone else here is interested, I'd only charge what it cost me.
