I don't even care if it's "nice" haha! I just really want another

Ohh I will have to follow that spawn then! I still want a female from this one

I would pay 25$ for a fish I loved, no problem. I'm so paranoid about going through a transhipper though, for some reason

I really was too actually..I was reaaaaally hesitant about buying from Thailand, it scared the crap out of me lol. The only transhipper in canada was in montreal I think which is still freakin far away from me :P I decided to just go for it though, and I looooove my thailand babies :) I only have two girls from there now, ones a yellow/black CT and the other is a royal blue HM.

bUT! Here's my hmpk I wanna spawn. It won't be for a long while though, I'll be really preoccupied with Arianna for a few months, but the parents said once she's got a decent schedule going, I can try it again :)

I should really get more information on how to go through a transhipper, suck it up and try it

Haha I bet! I couldn't imagine having a baby and doing what you do with your fish. How old are you? If you don't mind me asking I'm 22.

Woah Nice fish!

(just popping in now XP) ive bought 3 fish from thailand. Once about 3 years ago when there was a different transhipper... lots of miss communication and my fish was placed in a mail box on a hot summer day for almost 5 hours 0_0... I bought again from thailand about a year ago and it was a much better experience... i hate the price.. paying more for shipping then a fish but other then that it worked out great. The one male unfortunately jumped out over night so I only had him for about 12 hours :( the female passed a month ago. I'm not going to say I WONT ever do it again.. but I much prefer to buy (and ship) a fish from Canada.. a little more close to home :)

There is a great betta breeder in Montreal (about 2 hours from me) but i have never been out there to check out his fish.. I might soon though :)

Thanks JBosley! Im actually 21 haha! Pretty close in age eh? :P

Definitely the bad part about buying from thailand is how expensive it is...For the four fish I got, I ended up paying around $180 overall, but it was totally worth it. Some of the fish from there are amaaaaaaazing! Maybe I should just move there. Lmao.

Possibly some bad news, Marbles the mom, I noticed tonight is very bloated and pineconey :( I experimented to see if they'd eat flakes that came with the tank I recently bought, so she might've just eaten too much..But she's all clamped up and looking pretty miserable. I took her out of the sorority and in a QT tank for the night. Guess we'll have to see by morning

i wouldn't give her any freeze-dried or flakes at the moment, they easily bloat betta's. hopefully marbles gets better, she is such a pretty girl.

Yea I didnt feed her tonight, so hopefully she just ate like a pig and got fat on me. I knew most bettas didnt even like flakes but I tried them just to see if they'd eat it lol. Guess they did I rarely feed anything new, just two kinds of pellets and occasional frozen bloodworm treats. I cant feed freeze dried bloodworms, I'm allergic to them haha

She looks like she's taken a turn for the worse :( It looks like her slime coat is coming off and is still all clamped up and miserable.
