Woohoo! Lucky find at Walmart today! Before grabbing some cat food I decided to look at the bettas. Saw a couple more blue crowntail females, but decided against getting one since I already have some blue crowntails (might go back for one, though - she had a really nice shade of blue) and looked through the rather pathetic selection of males. They had maybe half the number they usually do today, and lots of "generic" looking fish. But in the last cup was a crowntail beauty! Pictures to come when I get him set up in his new home!

Aquabid! Lots of great sellers there overseas and in the US. Transshipping isn't as big of a hassle or expense as it would seem to be. Roughly $5 to get the fish from Thailand to the transshipper, then whatever the shipping cost is from the shipper to you. Usually around $15-35 depending on whether you choose express or priority shipping. Chard is one seller who is a member here. Never got any of his fish (yet) but I have heard great things from other members. Many of the Thai sellers have Facebook pages where they display their stock as well.

As promised, a picture!






He is a very pretty iridescent blue green with a mostly yellow anal and dorsal fin. The flash kind of distorts his colors but I couldn't get a nice clear shot without it. He is in my 1.5 gallon, which is bare for now. I will add some sand and wood a little later, but for the time being it will be kept bare to make daily pwc's easier until I can find my internal filter for the tank. No need for a heater right now, though. My ac is not working well so the place hovers between around 78-84. I have a mini heater to pop in when I need it though, although odds are he will be moved into my divided 10 gal soon enough. Just want the platy fry that are in one half to grow up a little more before moving them into the big tank.
