Tikibirds I know the feeling! Apparently if I want to buy of AB, I will have to get one of our local fish places to do it for me. Otherwise its illegal! *sulks*

Hmmm.... Alaska, huh? Well, that is a ways!!!

Almost all my fish come priority and make it just fine. This past Feb. I had one held up FIVE days due to a blizzard that shut down a good portion of the lower 48 and he still made it fine. Both I and the seller were AMAZED!

The seller I purchased this guy from packs his fish very, VERY well!!!

I've seen pictures of quite a few of your bettas and they are all gorgeous, so I think 15 beautiful AMAZING bettas is allowed!
Thats a lot of water changes! O_O And I thought I had a lot of changes to do.
Your tanks sound beautiful!
Since I AM the 'Mom" I don't have to worry about that - do have a husband, though!! Lucky me, he is very tolerant of my "animal love" - LOL!

I also have 4 birds to take care of and, of course, the normal household duties such as cooking, dishes, laundry, etc.

I have a theory that this is how I have avoided "empty nest" syndrome since all our kids are grown & moved out.

Ahhh, I had a feeling! I got Basch from Elmo.

I can always sorta tell when its that seller, the camera has a distinct look about it in the photos, hah! :D

She/he packs like a CHAMPION. Omg, Basch was in a big ol' box that couldve probably survived a fall down a mountain at -1000'F.

Great seller :DDD

EXCELLENT seller, IMO!!!

Just as an FYI (in case you didn't know) - this seller is his wife and has the same great service and packaging:

You know, Ive always wondered why that person (who I assumed was the same one) had two accounts, lol! That makes more sense.

Theyre both great. I really like them as well as Hopdiggidy. Its nice to see that you can get really nice bettas in the US! :D

Wow Alaska is pretty far. If express mail isn't very quick, i cant imagine how priority mail would be.
