We just purchased a Red Copper HM on Aquabid. I think we have the same tastes hehe
Hi, fellow East Coaster!!!!!
I've considered using Aquabid, but with the mail strike, I don't think I want to risk it, even though I know the shipping from AB is probably not gonna have anything to do with Canada Post. I also want to order some marimo balls from the UK off of ebay, but again, same thing.
If you wanted to have a look at my copper HM, Newf, he's in the thread 'Oh Snoogerbots!'. The first few pics are when I was acclimatizing him to the tank, but there are some better ones further into the thread. The pet store I got him from (that's where the breeder works) had a red copper there as well as Newf and another purple copper. I'm guessing they were all from the same spawn.
I was quite surprised to see the dragon betta there, especially since I had put my name down for a dragon betta if one came in when I was in the store the week before, but nobody had called me. Maybe it was because he looks to be only half betta. But I'm guessing they just forgot.
I only went in this week because I knew they were getting some HMs , and I wanted to see all the pretty fishies.
We don't get lots of bettas like him here, either. He's the first I've seen anywhere in St. John's that looks like that. Most stores only sell VTs and CTs.
