Wow your fishies arrived!!!!!!! how exciting, such a shame about the two that died though:( still 34 out of 36 isn't too bad I guess. Yes I expect you are super busy looking after them all! So wish I lived closer to you too, I so could have bought some from you if you felt that you needed to cut down a little. Especially now because I have just finished making a new betta barrack tank that will hold another 10 males, can't wait until it is all set up. Shame but anyway I certainly wish you luck in finding a few of them homes if you decide you have too many, I am sure anyone would feel super lucky to be able to buy from you :) Know I would! Oh I just noticed that you have some new photos in your album, off to check them out ! Good to hear from you and may all your bettas stay happy and healthy :)
Hey Veggiegirl!!!! My fishies came last week....all 36 of them! One was DOA....and one has also died since arriving (no idea why), but that's still 34 new fish. I think I've bitten off more than I can chew though....lol....and will probably re-home a few of them, unfortunately. I wish you lived closer!
Oh your bettas have not arrived yet, I bet you are excited and cannot wait for them to arrive!!!!!! It will be like Christmas come early, so exciting to open all the boxes and find your beauties inside. What a great feeling. I would be so impatient for them to arrive though as you sensibly say it does give you more time to get their tanks all set up for them. Best to be organised especially with that many arriving all at once. Anyways be sure to let me know when they arrive I cannot wait to see photos :) May they all arrive happy and healthy for you!!!!!!
Hey Veggiegirl, sorry for not replying sooner....still getting used to the forum...lol. My next "batch" of fishies haven't arrived yet. The Canadian transhipper, Hung Pham, has another ship date now on March 25th, so I'll probably get them a day or two after that. I'm working hard to get more tanks set up so that I have homes for these guys!
lol no probs it's true! OMG that was so nice of you to say you would give me an Aquabid fishie! I wouldn't expect you to do that! but it was a very kind offer and was very much appreciated. I am afraid I live a long way away from you (I live in Australia!). When your gorgeous fishies arrive though be sure to post some pics I would looove to see them. Had a look in your album the other day and wow your fish are amazing!!!!
I am thinking that one day I will take the plunge and buy from Aquabid, I have taken my first step towards that goal this week, I ordered some bettas from my trans shipper, they are Thailand Imports but are already in Australia. They should be arriving tomorrow so I cannot wait to pick them up!!!!! I set up a tank for them this morning. Hopefully they will arrive safe and well I have never bought fish that had needed shipping to me before so wish me luck!!
Awww, thanks, Veggiegirl! I've had bettas off and on for the last 20+ years....long before Aquabid existed.....and once you bite that bullet, it's so hard to resist buying more (and more and more....lol). Now I've got to get busy setting up all the tanks for my new fishies coming in a couple of weeks. Whereabouts do you live? If you lived close to me, I'd give you an Aquabid fishie (not really comfortable with trying to ship one though.....lol)
Oh you are a real inspiration having so many bettas and taking good care of them. I cannot even imagine dads reaction if I told him I was running so many heaters, dads like to complain about the price of electricity and he doesn't know about the three new tanks that I am setting up......... they will be a surprise I guess! You are so lucky, are your new 30 bettas bought off Aquabid? I can understand you getting so many the possibilities on Aquabid are endless!!!! Glad I am not confident enough and lack the funds to buy off Aquabid otherwise I think I would have a serious problem...... wouldn't be able to stop buying, no doubt one of these days I will not be able to resist the wonders of Aquabid any longer. Anyhow thought I would drop by and let you know that you are a real inspiration to betta lovers wishing to own a lot of bettas!!!! You make anything seem possible:)
