I saw the photo you posted of that betta! He's stunning. Hope your shipping goes smoothly, I just couldn't bring myself to deal with the transhipping to get one from overseas.
My guy really does seem to be happy in his planted nano. There was a trace (not even the lowest mark) of ammonia when I tested this week, so I'm doing some extra water changes just to be safe. At least they're a snap in this size tank!
Aquabid.com and the seller is interbettas. I'm waiting to see what happens once it hits the states. I'm thinking I will be "surprise stuck" with the transhippers fees somehow. Though that was never mentioned prior or anywhere on the auction. Time will tell.
