If anybody is interested in getting some cool Bettas from Thailand, I have some fish going to Jennifer Viveiros on the 10th and was wondering if anybody wanted to split shipping charges. *I'm flexible if the date or transshipper doesn't work for somebody.

What is the cost?

Shipping, customs fee, and her other fees should be $20-25 a per person for two people. I just got 3 fish from her today and it was $41 with shipping and everything else..

Is that for one Betta?

first you have to buy the fish ($20 - $30) + $5 shipping to the USA transhipper (and wait for the next large shipment)
I usually ship through Linda Olson and she charges
Import $1.20 / Handling @ $2 per fish / Shipping box $5 / Heat pack $2 (not in August)/ DHL Express *$32 (varies with number of fish) *Total $44.20 *for 2 fish
On my last shipment of 7 bettas, the cost was a little less than $10/fish.

Any details on the type of fish I'd be receiving if I did this? *New to betas here and just want to get something better than what's on store shelves.

Here are a few from my last visit to aquabid.com (I can't afford to look there anymore)
Some from my Thai shipment and some nice white pairs from US breeders
