How would that be accomplished anyways? Wouldn't they get hurt along the way? How many could someone ship to you?

I'm no expert but I would have gravitated towards the Maracyn as well.

I know they're in exceptional care, and hope you'll continue to update on their progress.

Sending a ton of good, healing wishes your way for the new little ones!

That is great! Hey, have you ever had a sorority before (a betta one that is)? I'm hoping to start one up, I made a list of all my supplies, so any pointers?

Yes I do have a sorority :) when she is bigger and aaalll healthy I will add her to the tank.

pointers: the bigger the tank the better. STUFF that tank FULL of live and fabric/silk plants, and hidey holes. You should have 4 or more females, in my opinion, to avoid any bullying against one individual.

And hummingbird, to ship bettas, you put them in a bag, and that bag into another bag. Heat packs (LFS stores) will be needed, along with cushioning such as: bubble wrap, styrofoam peanuts. If I can find the thread...there was a thread on how to ship bettas safely.
I don't know if the number of fish matters too much... For instance, there is a breeder in Ontario, she said it would be 50.00 shipping to me, and then however much for the fish... I'd get 2 females (was, but now I am not), and the shipping would be the same.

And thank you mardi!!

Well, that is why it costs so much to ship it's for express shipping, which takes 2 days usually. The heat packs, keep them alive and warm. And usually on boxes with live fish it usually should say "FRAGILE: LIVE FISH" on the box.

no problem sent a message!

also, if you wanted take a look: reptileandfishcanada.com This is the breeder I was talking about. A very nice person, doesn't rip you off. I know you get bettas for free, but her bettas range from 2-40 dollars, and are either Canada bred or Thailand imports. Doesn't hurt to look (so says the one who looked at bettas and bought some)
