That post is over a year old. Not to worry, I forget to look at last-post dates, too.

bettarainbow916 Most of the betta today from aquabid look the same to me. A bunch of koi betta fishes that all the Thai sellers posted. I only buy betta from aquabid for the purpose to breed and searching for new color. Unfortunately, few most known breeders are not selling their fish anymore in aquabid. I am talking about aquastar71, nicebettas and ram91. Those 3 plus bangleanbetta are the best breeders from aquabid to me. They have the most colorful betta that you can imagine. Now, when i am looking at aquabid betta, it is so boring, it is just me.

AquaBid & Linda

I am brand-new to the Aquabid experience. My seller was Macbatta. I've been on pins and needles because I had just missed the regular shipment from Thailand to transshipper Linda Olson, so it took him two weeks for the next shipment to get to her. He didn't respond to emails until he finally sent one with pictures that they shipped. I got an email from Linda by the third week. She let me know that my fish are fine and after paying her, that they will go out tomorrow to me. I hope that I did not tick either of them off as I was a bit of a pest. I will keep everyone posted.

Bailmint Not sure-just got my first mail order Bettas last month. It could be debatable-since sometimes there is a lot of inbreeding involved (sometimes not). I'm sure keeping Bettas in cups can cause some internal and sometimes external damage-in that case, yes from breeders they're healthier. But they're definitely higher quality from breeders.

If your temperatures where you live aren't extreme, they should be fine, but it is a good decision to stay home the day they're supposed to arrive.

SkyDye Ohhh I see. Is it true that bettas from breeders are often in better health and have a longer life then pet store bettas? If I was to order is have to make sure to be home for those specific days as I would hate if the fish was sitting outside my front door for a long time.

Bailmint Buy the fish, contact your chosen transhipper asking for a quote on the price, contact the seller on which transhipper you chose, and the transipper and seller will work out shipping and shipping dates with eachother. Pay quickly-the quicker the pay the faster the shipping usually. They won't ship until paid. The seller will send the fish to the transhipper along with a lot of other fish shipments for other people, then the transhipper will package him/her up in a box with heat or cold pack and stuff, then ship it to your house.

If you want to leave out or add in a heat pack, contact the transhipper.

SkyDye I was reading this for future reference and the only part that confuses me is the transhipping thing. Does the fish get shipped from the transhippers to your house, local post office, UPS store? Where does it go to and do you have to contact the transhipper with your details before you purchase the fish and request that they are sent through that specific transhipper? I'm so confused :-/
