Which transhipper should I pick? ( buying a betta from aquabid )

Choices are:

1. Linda Olson ( Thornton, CO )
2. Jennifer Viveiros ( Atlanta, GA )
3. Julie Tran ( Sacramento, CA )
4. Pegasus ( Miami, FL )

Thanks guys. :)

Edit: How long does it take to ship from thailand to transhipper ( US )

Thanks. :)

Being in CA, I would choose Julie.
I live in WA and have used her before without problems.
I think that people end up not liking their trnashipper mainly when they expect the transhipper to have constant communication with them. When they get a shipment, they are VERY busy. They are not just receiving your fish, but humdreds of others so you can imagine how much work is in their hands.
I believe it takes 1 or 2 days from Thailand to US, but it will depend on when the next ship date is. Shipments from Thailand happen every 2 weeks.
Here's Julie's transhipping info page: http://flowerhornsfrombeyond.com/aqu...sshipping.html

And here's Jennifer's: http://bellsouthpwp.net/J/e/JennViv/...taTranship.htm

Awesome fish...I just got my first Aquabid fish in two days ago. I used Jennifer as a transhipper and experienced no problems. My fish arrived alive and well-packed with a still warm heat pack. But from what I've heard, all the transhippers are very professional and do their job well. Congrats on the new fish!

I chose Jennifer despite the fact that I live in California because it seemed that she has more lenience when it comes to shipping at a particular day.

Thanks Little & Badjer. :)

She does. I was out of town the day my betta was supposed to ship in, so I asked her to hold him until the following week. It was no problem for her. (: Keep us updated about him!

Yeah XD I'm home for the whole day on Fridays only. ( and for most of the day on Thursday. )

I had a tough decision between the one I bought and this one:



I ended up choosing the black & white... but still itching to get the betta shown above.

Argh!!! XD

Btw I have a question regarding marbles. Do they usually stay that color and maybe change a bit? OR... do they drastically change after a while? I like how there's white outlines on the fin.

Wow, that's a tough choice! Lol, they both look amazing! What did you end up naming your cute little guy? I'm curious to see what he looks like in a year or so!
