Two Betta Boys ~ Picture Heavy


Finch I bought from AquaWorld68 on eBay. Little Willie was the "gift" Betta (he gives you a choice of Betta pellets or another Betta).

Finch is first.

Thank you.

Yes, everyone who buys from him gets a free Betta; his choice. He tells you after you buy your Betta and before he ships. What I like is he guarantees live arrival with Priority. Most sellers only guarantee live if you pay $35+ for Overnight.

He seems like a good seller. He should give you an extra fish for that price. They are really nice fish and bred here in the USA?

I have been buying Thailand imports for my breeding project. Most of the time it goes well. One time the seller forgot the ship my fish then when he tried to ship it the second time the fish "Jumped" and died. I was so pissed. My others have been awesome healthy fish with no problems.

Nice bettas! Looks like the seller is from NY.
I'm tempted to make a divided tank.

Thank you everyone. I like them both quite a bit.

Thank you for the compliments. I love watching these guys. They're in a tank on my end table.

These are imports sold through a U.S. seller. I looked at Aquabid and by the time you pay the seller, the seller's shipping fee and the transhipper the price is about the same for one Betta. Aquabid does have more variety than eBay if one is breeding.

Mistergreen: I divided my 20 long three ways for three Bettas with a community/invert section in the middle. A photo is in the invert forum and, I think, here.

Yes, he sells females but doesn't have any right now. You might ask if he can get you something specific; he's real easy to deal with. Oh, and a couple of months ago he had a really nice pair of pure white HM. Neither was spoonheaded, either. :-) He currently has some really pretty Plakats.

BTW, I swap the boys from one section to the other once a week so all get time in the bigger section of the tank. It's funny how their personalities change when they're in the 12 gallon part!
