I Might Just Have To

Splurge on this betta. I've been in love with him for the past month. I know that the whole shipping thing is going to be expensive, but what else would I spend my pennies on?

Here he is:




I'm smitten!

Just wanted to share those pictures with you and my little dream of owning him.

Yeah it's good. He is $15 to buy, with a $5 ship from Thailand to the US. Then it is about $2 for import fees, $2 for handling, $5 for box then $12 for the shipping. So over all that's $41, but that's just the generalization. I haven't bought from Thailand, and I may be adding or not adding things that may be there. It's a lot, but IMO he's worth it!

I would only order from Thailand if there is a live arrival guarantee

Same. I checked and they do, plus the people I want to get it from have GREAT feed back. It's 462/468, so I think that's pretty good odds

I know, I've been sitting and drooling over him for the past week, so I think he'll be worth all the work I've been doing!

I think I will. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. I'm actually in the process of selling bracelets for him I just need a bit more money and he's mine!
