bettatalk order form 

come on, spoil yourself a little hehe! 
you know you want some of 'em nice bettatalk bettas!  


need help with this form and how to use it? click here.

STEP 1 - please provide the necessary customer & shipping information :)


I need the info below to fill your shipping label. So FOCUS! PAY ATTENTION!! Make sure to fill ALL fields, so your name and your address and phone are EXACTLY as you want them to appear on the shipping label. You mess this up, and your bettas might end up in the Bermuda Triangle (get my drift?). Double check your phone number! One bad digit could = lots of headaches for the both of us! All fields marked with an * are required to be filled. OK, are you focused? Are you paying attention? Proceed :). 

full name*:


**Note: Help me give you faster service by consistently using the same above email account to email me about this order. All orders are filed by screen names, so switching can cause confusion and delays.

retype your email please**:      

**Note: Please don't copy paste. I need you to retype manually your email so to make sure I have a correct address to email you back at!

Which phone number do you want listed on your shipping label? The USPO will call that number to let you know the bettas have arrived, so pick the one that is most convenient for you (may it be home or work or cell):

enter that phone number here*:

In case of emergency I might need to contact you about your order, so please do provide: 
home phone*:
work phone*: 
other phone:


     STEP 2 - now let's talk about your order :)


No lots numbers = no bettas!!

Make sure to list each lot number, description and price otherwise your order will be rejected. Take the time to do this right, or you will lose the lots :((. 

1. tell us which bettas you would like to purchase:

select:     reference #          describe each lot in detail      $price

 Shipping fees:  
if you are local and are thinking about picking up the bettas click here

Note: If you have ordered less than 3 times from me, you will be required to leave a $25 security deposit for my shipping box. It will be fully refunded once I get the box back (in good condition). Box must be wrapped before shipping it back (don't worry, I'll send you instructions). 


substitutions :

Should one or more of the lots you selected be already sold, please let me know if I can substitute them for another lot/strain or not:

if it is OK to substitute, let me know what other lots interest you:



2. can you adopt some additional, free bettas?


If this is your first time ordering BETTAS from me, you are eligible to receive a "surprise" betta. Betta sex, size or color may vary according to availability and cannot be predicted. If you do not have the room for a surprise betta, please let us know. I want to make sure your surprise betta will be housed properly so if you do not have room for an extra bowl / tank, better let me know now! :)

YES, I have room so please send me my surprise betta  
(I will send you the surprise betta).

NO, room is tight right now so better not send me a surprise betta  
(I will NOT send you the surprise betta then).


Culls ,  adoptions and extra bettas

Please note that culls or extras are sent only if available. I cannot guaranty or promise to have culls or extra bettas to send to you, but if I do, and you have checked the proper boxes, then you will get some. Do not be alarmed if you open your box and find no bags marked: "adoption" or "extra".

I have room for free extra bettas  
On occasion I might be able to spare some extra stock.

I am willing to give a cull a good home 
Culls are either healthy but flawed fish (unsuitable for breeding or for resale), or flawless but damaged fish (Halfmoon with torn tails, maybe very slight tail rot, etc...). The later can be used for breeding and carry all the same great genes. However they will require a little investment of time, TLC and meds to heal up.  

Send up to 4 culls, I have lotsa room and love!

3. what other betta related products would you like:

   BettaZing!  (replaces Bettamax hehehe)

u save $5 when you add BettaZing to your betta order!
(regularly $15, only $10 if you order it now)

I strongly suggest you get some BettaZing if you have not yet ordered some. You will need it when you acclimate your bettas, so to prevent them from getting sick after they arrive, since they will be a bit stressed from the trip. BettaZing will protect them as they get used to their new homes, water and foods. A great betta disease preventative and cure, this med is perfect to administer to bettas in jars since it is liquid (use 1 drop per quart jar). Makes it simple and easy to dose. This is a Bettatalk exclusive and is a great substitute to our beloved (but defunct) "Bettamax" (Aquatronics went out of business so no one can find Bettamax anymore boohoo... So I came up with this narly substitute!). I tested this on my own fish as a preventative and also on sick fish as a cure and it gave amazing results. This great med will protect your bettas from a multitude of ailments and is extremely effective against betta's biggest foes: Velvet, parasites and fungal infections. Just like Bettamax, this is not meant to cure serious bacterial infections. But for example, if your bettas get clamped fins or stiff fins this will in most cases fix it pronto! A must have for all betta hobbyists! Use it as a preventative to protect your bettas or use it to treat affected fish. Comes with detailed instructions. BettaZing! It's a betta thing! (boy am I good at coming up with slogans? Or am I good?? :)  )

Send me a dose of BettaZing at the reduced price of $10 

Send me double dose, I know I'll use it! $20  
Twice the Zing :) two bottles of BettaZing 


live plants:

Would you like a starter clump of java moss/fern plant* (a betta's best friend)*? 

*Note: Subject to availability. 

Java Fern.JPG (148984 bytes)
Java Fern will grow to look like this


is much prettier and more decorative than Java moss and less messy. It too, can survive without gravel and tolerates colder water temps, high or low PH. It is also a betta breeder's favored plant. However it is not as effective at cleaning up nitrites and ammonia then Java Moss. Hence when moss is in season, I will send moss. Java fern starter clumps are made of several young plants with usually only 2 to 3 leaves each. Don't worry, they will grow LOL.

Moss free floating in a jar


Each starter clump will effectively keep nitrite and ammonia levels down to a near ZERO between water changes for up to 5  half gallon betta bowls (cost to keep water cleaner per betta = $2 :) ). I recommend getting 2 starter clamps of moss, so you have a little extra left to play with. This is a hard to kill plant that will do great in betta bowls and has no special light requirement. Can survive in low light or high light, low PH or high PH. Gravel or NO gravel. Prefers still water, like our bettas :)). Will keep your fish healthier between water changes. Comes with complete instructions.



microworm culture:

I am a new customer so please send me a free MICROWORM culture 
Please note that adult bettas will never eat microworms. Hence, only request a microworm culture if you have, or intend to have, small fry to feed. 

I am a recurring customer but I completely killed my last culture so please send me another MICROWORM culture for an additional $10  
If you are a recurring customer and previously received a free culture you should not need a new culture unless you have completely killed your last one. Adding a new sample of microworms to an already established culture is completely useless and a waste of your money! So, save your money and only request a refresher culture if you are fairly sure you murdered your last culture LOL! 


vinegar eel culture:

I am adding an extra $10 to receive a VINEGAR EEL culture with my order 
Please note that adult bettas will never eat vinegar eel. Hence, only request a vinegar eel culture if you have, or intend to have, small fry to feed. 


save money by ordering our happy betta breeder package deal !

This kit comes complete with: 1 BettaZing, 1 Microworm culture, 1 vinegar eel culture and 2 java fern starter clumps. Everything you need! PLUS you save $10 off of the regular prices posted above by getting the package deal.      

Yes, I want to add a Happy Betta Breeder Package Deal for an extra $40
Note: You would end up paying $45 plus $6 shipping = $51.00 if you were to order the kit separately from your supply page. So adding it to your current fish order is the smart way to go :).



OK, so maybe this one has almost nothing to do with bettas hehe... But so many of you have asked me to add this option so here it is :).

Please also send me a full length ALTERNATE FAITH album for $10 
This is a full length album featuring 12 of my songs. If you enjoy modern rock/world music, and would like to order my CD and support this independent artist :), you can by selecting this box. The CD will be inserted in a paper sleeve and placed at the top of your box and shipped at no extra charge this way, along with your fish hehehehe. Bettas love to spawn to my music. Really? No, not really LOL, but I had you going there, for a monent LOL. ;)

Thank you for your support!
