feedback from customers who have purchased my bettas

                                                           

"Hey Faith,

    Angie and I entered 2 of your fish in the IBC show in Orlando (with your permission) and we are proud to let you know 2 out of the 4 placed! The pastel DT male placed 3rd and the Satin Flame placed 1st and was best in show...... so needless to say we are very happy :o).
  We want to thank you and it was a great show for the I-4 club.


 Thank you again;


 
Cherie and Angie

 

"The Bettas arrived this morning and are more perfect than I could have imagined. My black/orange double tail is beautiful and already displaying himself for the females. The blue splash male is also perfect. (fantastic marbling) . Thank you for the extra unsexed black. He or she is adorable. And thanks for the adorable blue splash female cull. I have her comfortably resting in bettamax as you advised. She is a doll also. They are all phenomenal and I appreciate the extra care you take in packaging them .
I am very happy and want anyone out there who is thinking about purchasing but haven't yet to JUST DO IT !!!!!! You won't be disappointed."

“Hi Faith,

I have gotten all the wonderful new fishies home and followed the directions for getting them set up in their new homes. Everything went fine! (…) They are sooooo active!!!! They are going all over the place. (...) I absolutely love all of them!!! I also wanted to thank you for the gift bettas that you
sent me. (…) I really want to thank you again for all the care that you have taken with this whole process. It is quite obvious that you really care about your fish and about their safety and well being. I find that level of integrity very admirable.

I do plan on ordering from you again. This has been such wonderful experience. I was really nervous about the shipping. I did not want to open the box to find dead or seriously ill Bettas. The way that you package them and ship them with the heat pack and the packaging material is terrific. I will not hesitate to order in the future.

Thanks Again for all you help."

"Dear Faith,
I put my new Apache pair in a spawning tank and this morning 'Littlefish' is tending his fry. They spawned after only a half hour together! Thank you so much for them!"
 

D. KEALEY, CA

 

"They're here!!  Yeaa!!

(...) They are all so beautiful Faith, and happy!  They are currently busy be-bopping in their bags, I think they are a little anxious to be released, but I am making them wait, as per your instructions.  I can tell you - they are not very patient creatures, are they?? Thank you so much for the gift of the pretty blue female, as well as the adopted red male.  Both are lovely.  I am so impressed with the love and care you obviously give these little ones, it is evident in everything you do and it shows in your bettas as well.  I am proud to do business with you, and will recommend your site to my betta-freak friends. Boxes to go out tomorrow!!
Gratefully,

 
K. RENFROW

 

"Faith:

I picked up the fish at 7:30 AM today. They are absolutely gorgeous! All are alive and healthy. Thanks for the 3 extra bettas, that was very generous of you. You truly are the most organized and conscientious person I have ever dealt with through the mail! Your box will be back on its way to you today if possible. If I cannot get it out today, it will go out first thing Monday morning. 

Thanks again for a great job and for the beautiful stock you sent me. 

Your betta friend,


D. REEVES, GA

 

"Hi
Apache pair and extra male arrived today, all alive and well, will mail your box back to you in tomorrow's morning mail.
THANK YOU....looking forward to doing business with you again...
(...) Wish more people were as conscientious about their fish as you!!!

L. FAIRLEIGH, IN

 

"Faith,

Bettas are doing great. I brought them home yesterday noon and by evening they all had "colored up" and seemed right at home.

It is not often that high expectations are met, let alone exceeded. Not only are the bettas outstanding, but the whole process was flawless!

Confirmations, detailed instructions, genetic backgrounds, diet, follow-up call, etc. You're a PRO. Keep up the good work. I'll certainly be back."

G. SALEMI, NJ

 

"Hi,
    Well, as usual, you are WONDERFUL!!! I love my babies, and all of them are happy campers.  You did a wonderful job.  They are all simply gorgeous!!!
    I always get my money's worth and then some, every time I order from you.  Thank you so much for the extra's!!!!!  You are so kind!
    I'm mailing your box back right now,

 

 S. LAUDERBAUGH, IN

 

"Faith,

All the fish arrived alive and they are now swimming in there own tanks. Just finished setting them up and feeding them. Their color came back in a few minutes after releasing them, and the males are displaying to each other.

Those lavenders you sent are just absolutely gorgeous... Thanks again for such beautiful fish… All the breeding size females you sent me are huge. They are as big as the males. The females also have larger fins than most that I have seen. Great stock you have there!

All the fish are stunning, but the red/black/white, the red/white, and the black/white aggressive marble are to die for! I am in a state of shock! Can't believe how fantabulous ( my own creation for such gorgeous fish) they are. I can't wait to breed them to see if I get some like the parents, or better. ( Wishful thinking. LOL). The apaches are red-red-red and I will set them up in about two months.”

P. DELIO, WA

 

"Gday Faith),

All babies arrived safe and happy and have been acclimated. (Your pH is close to mine so it doesn't take long). The blue Cambo CT's look absolutely awesome. And now I see the huge difference between them and blue pastels. The blue is really BLUE, quite dark. Awesome fish Faith (...)
Be safe,
Speak to you again soon"

D. SPISAK, LA

 

"Hey Faith,
 
I got the babies and I will be sending your box back on Monday.  The babies are great and look really good.  The DT female apache is amazing.. and so lively.  Thanks so much for being so careful in packing and shipping them.  You did a wonderful job."

 E. DERRICK, WV

 


"I got the bettas in this morning. Everybody looks good, they are gaining color by the hour and taking F.D bloodworms eagerly....Beautiful fish! Thanks a lot..."
 
S. PARSON, TN

 

"They are here! They are here! And they are gorgeous. I received the Lavender BF males about 3 PM yesterday.  They are simply gorgeous.  I love their coloring. They are doing fine.  .. I will ship the box back tomorrow."

J CASCIANO, CA

 

"Faith,
I have received the bettas today 9-27-01. They were the 3 pastels that were sent to Loveland, CO. Thank you so much, they are beautiful!! :) I hope sometime I can order from you again! Right now they're getting acclimated in their tanks. Thanks again!"


R. HORST, CO

 

"Hi Faith! I picked up my bettas at the Post Office today (they arrived this a.m.). All 5 red fish came looking good!  I'm very impressed w/these red DT girls - very nice!!!! The red crowntail trait fish look lovely
too. :)


Thank you!!!!"


J. RITTER, WI

 

" I hope my friend was able to e-mail you last night and let you know that the bettas arrived in good condition.  (...)  Within two hours after their arrival they were happily dining on Freeze dried bloodworms in their little bags and were active and healthy and absolutely gorgeous!  Thank you for the extra ST red male, he as as beautiful as the rest! Your box will be shipped out today.

Thanks again!

Donna Wilbanks and new betta family."

D. WILBANK, SC

 

"Hi Faith,
 
I got them this morning - Saturday.  Thank you and bless you - I totally wasn't expecting all those extra beauties.  I love them already... 
 
Anyway, will be sending your box back on Monday and look forward to doing business with you some time in the future.  Take care and good gigging."

"Hi,
      
      The Babies arrived today about 11:33am.  All seemed to be in good shape (...). I've put them in their Tanks and have fed them and all seem to be eating. They are starting to get their colors back and are starting to be more active. I love the colors that are starting to appear on the Blue and Green Moon males. Thanks for the extra Blue Moon Female. (...)

Thanks again and I'll be looking for more stock come next spring.

Danny

PS........I love your CD's, especially the new one, looking forward to more recordings!!!!!!!

M. GARPNE, TX

 

"Good morning, Faith!

Picked the gang up at 8:30 this morning. They all came out of the box alive and KICKING! And they are all beautiful. Thank you so much for the freebies, and be assured that "Little Pete" will be well taken care of. My fiance and I already love him; he's so cute!

Thank you again!"

A. BRUCKER, WA

 

"FAITH - 

Hi !!! wanted to let you know that I just picked the fish up from the USPO. Beautiful fish !!! All fish are very active.

Hello again

I hope you have not worried to much I just finished putting them in the tanks, I have had them prepared for about two weeks now a couple of 5 gallon tanks. They look great a little stressed but seem to be doing very well. I can't thank you enough i am very pleased with them,and i love your instructions you are truly a genius at this. I also was very surprised to find the two culls also glad to see them, I have a 30 gallon and two 10 gallon tanks, as well as a 55 gallon tank that I just purchased for 75 dollars. Stand and all garage sale as you suggested in your web page,it will take a while to get it up and running but i have plenty of room until then.

I look forward to purchasing more betta's off of you in the future."

“Just thought I'd take a few minutes of your chaotic schedule to say hello, how are things going and just to thank you for such beautiful specimens. I must say I don't think I've ever had such a cooperative pair spawn so damage free, like actor and actress having rehearsed their lines with flawless execution. I hope your box arrived in one piece, and please keep me in mind in upcomming melanos, and I will continue to check your site.”

C. CORNISH, DC

 

“I got the cuties today!!! They are doing wonderful. My fave one is the female from Gorgeous...she has a wonderfully wide dorsal fin, which is what I'm trying to stay with in my lines. Thank you so much...I'll be ordering again soon...probably sooner than I can afford to, but hey, that's what happens when you get hooked on Bettas :).”

A. O’KONSKI, PA

 

“I picked up the my opaque bettas today. They are GREAT! Alive and Well! Anyway thanks for the GREAT fish!!!”

C. GLENDENING, KS

    

"The Bettas arrived in great shape yesterday (sorry for the delay in answering... computer troubles)! Each is in a separate tank for now. I won't try breeding for a few weeks as you suggest.

Thanks for the great fish and I will keep you posted and my breeding success."

J. MADDEN, MT

 

"Hello Faith,

I wanted to thank you very much for your patience in my first mail order of bettas (...) I am very impressed with the fish themselves, but  I am also impressed with the care taken in the shipping of the bettas. The bettas seem to be doing very well and are coloring up nicely. The red/black male flared at me the second time I added water to his bag! He is a beauty by the way! I like the personality of the chocolate female already (...). Thanks again for everything, I hope to be ordering again soon."

C. DEAS

 

"Just wanted to let you know that I got the bettas and everything was OK.  The males are the brightest red I have ever seen on any fish, in person or in a magazine.  I gave the little powder blue cull I adopted to my daughter and she loves it.  She calls it "bah noy," which in Laotian means little fish (my wife is from Laos).  It's not a very creative name, I admit, but she is only two.  All of your instructions are very easy to follow, and I thank you for that.  I look foreward to doing business with you in the future.  Well, at least for as long as you keep selling such beautiful fish.

Thanx for everything"

M. JEANS, CT

 

"The bettas are gorgeous! Especially the DT marble male. He'll get lots of attention and food, never fear! :-) You should see Shaman (the DT red marble male I got from you)... His fins are incredible... Thanks again!"

M. McDOWELL, WI

 

"FAITH,

Our bettas arrived around 2:00 p.m. on 10/14/99 (Thursday). The fish are in great shape and very beautiful :>). We were very pleased with the quality. We will ship your box back to you tomorrow.

Thanks for the gift and for raising such great fish!!!"

L. SCOTT, ID

                                   

"Hi Faith,

The "dragon betta" male is looking especially nice, his deportment is so great that he seems to be "on display" all the time without actually doing a full flare... I am really looking forward to working more with that line, with the large and unusually shaped fins, he is quite striking and I can't wait to see if I can get more like him."

S. PARSON



"I received the fish this morning and am extremely pleased. They are beautiful. Thank you for the extras. They are magnificent, and I will make them very happy homes. I will get your box back to you as soon as possible. Hey Faith, you RULE."

G. AGENT, MI

 

Faith-
      I wanted to let you know how much I love your site! I absolutely LOVE  the trio of pastels I received from you a while back!!  Thank so much for giving me the opportunity to own these precious fishies!1

PS: It's weird to think that the first time I came here, I didn't own 1!? That was a LONG time ago! thanks again!

“Hiya FAITH :)

The fish arrived safe and sound, and are being acclimated now. Thank You so much for the fish....*BIG GRIN*. They are beautiful...I cannot wait to breed them...hopefully....you will be seeing some of their offspring in future IBC shows."

J. CRAIG, NC

Thanks!"

F. ROLLIN, ME

 

“The fish arrived safe and sound. I picked them up at around 9:30am and they were home by 9:35. I followed your instructions and put them into their new homes. I must say that they are quite lively and vivacious. I'm quite pleased...

Thanks Faith”

J. YMANA, OH

The bettas all arrived ok. They are awesome! Thanks again”

S. USSREY, FL

 

"Hi Faith,
The bettas arrived today (alive & looking good).  Thank you so much for the extra ones....You are a very generous person and I thank you for all your helpful advice, good service and "betta" friendship.  I look
forward to ordering from you again.

Thanks again,


I. FUKUJI, HW

 

"Hi,

I received all five of the bettas that you sent me, thank you very much!  All are doing fine floating in their new
homes and are already starting to color up.  Thank you so much for the two culls!  And thank you for the DT substitution, I sure appreciate it a lot!  They are really beautiful fish and I am so excited...they will make a lovely addition to the Anderson Betta Family :) I will send your box back ASAP per your instructions.

Again, many thanks.  The fish are lovely.  I look forward to ordering more from you!

Take Care,

E. ANDERSON, OR

 

"Faith, I just thought I would let u know how the bettas are doing since I received them from you. The 2 pairs of white yellow blue b.f. It been a month since I got them there growing so fast. They love to eat and they getting so beautiful. I am almost ready to try spawning them and see how it goes. I can't thank you enough for the great fish and the cultures were great and still going strong. The red trio doing just as great. Can't wait to see the new fish  u have coming up next.
 
One very happy customer !!!!!"
 
C GREEN , KS

 

“Hi Faith,

Buying my bettas from you has been an awesome experience and you have made it both exciting and enjoyable. I was impressed with the detailed explanation of what was to be done, what was next and why. Also, being new to the Betta world, I really appreciated your instruction on how to care for my new little friends, from taking them out of the shipping container, which was very well constructed, to getting them all settled into their new home. Your gift of the little powder blue female added a wonderful flavor of delight to the experience and is appreciated very much. With the information on your site I feel confident that I will be able to successfully breed my fish and enjoy them for many years to come. Working with you I found that you are not chasing the buck and that you are really concerned for your animals first and foremost, and because of that you are one of the people that make this world a better place. Thanks for your help, thanks for your patience, thanks for your generosity, and thanks for the fun.”
