from customers who have purchased my bettas
I got the bettas and they are
absolutely GORGEOUS!!! thank you thank you THANK YOU for the extra
crowntails and the 2 adoptions as well. I promise to take

them all!! as we speak, they are acclimating in their little
tanks. they are all so lively (...). again, thank you
so much for everything. You are truly the betta goddess! I'll
keep you posted on their progress. For now, have fun on your

The fish have arrived safely and are now floating in their new
homes! :-) Thank you sooooo much for your excellent service
and the extra fish. (...)
I must tell you that you know the mail system better than the postal
workers at my post office. They told me that the fish would never
get here that quick , but you were right, it was less than 24 hours.
Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you. I promise to take great
care of them!"
M. KIDD, NH
The Bettas just arrived. They are all healthy and are starting the
transition into my tanks. They look wonderful! I can't wait to breed
a few weeks. (Thanks for the extra females!)
I will put the shipping box in tomorrow's mail.
Thanks for everything!"
R. TUNNEY, IA
Just a quick note to tell you how much I love the bettas I got
from you last
week. I've had them for 8 days now and they're doing just
all super-frisky, eating like little piglets, and they'll even eat
from my fingers! I discovered this a few days ago when I was
feeding, and a piece of freeze-dried brine shrimp was stuck to my
finger. Before I could
flick it off, the little Dreamcatcher geno female poked her head
up OUT OF
THE WATER and gulped it right from my fingertip!
The bettas are
TERRIFIC! The yellow females' color is incredible (the
second one was a wonderful wonderful surprise!) and the two
genos are *very* frisky in their bags! The biggest surprise
of all was the
Gold Flame geno male. How unbelievably cool! I went
from zero breeding
stock to a whole fish room of my very own in one day, LOL!
The Dreamcatcher geno male gets more beautiful every day (I *love*
color, all purple-y and silver) and is even blowing little bubble
Thanks for such terrific bettas! I couldn't be happier.
I'll be placing an
order with you for supplies sometime in the next few weeks,
because I can't
wait to try my hand at breeding for the first time. With
little bettas like these, I think I have a good chance at success!
|"hi faith, Gabe
just wanted to let you know my little guys are in gr8 shape and I
hope you got your box back on time. did you like the way i wrapped
Anyways, just wanted to say I LOVE MY NEW BABIES!!!!! :) "
G. RAMIREZ, TX
Love the bettas! I sent your box back today via
priority mail. The bettas are doing terrific. I have a question. The Apache male
is building a bubble nest. In your enclosed information, you said that they are
not old enough to breed. How long before you recommend breeding them? Thanks.”
M. MUNEZ, MA
got the bettas!!! I feel so powerful, so happy! :) Thank you, and
thank you very much for the free cute holy grail geno, he is
awesome, do you think you could help me name him? I enjoy them
very much, and thank you so much for bringing so much joy in to my
life. :)) (...)Its been a great experience buying bettas from you,
also a lot of fun, excitement, and jumping around making my
parents thinking I'm crazy when I found out I got them. :)
PS I will
get your box sent as soon as possible! :)
A. LEE, OR
My babies are here, and they are all doing well. I am going to
go acclimate them to their new homes now. The Satin Flame male
from your stock is the most feisty, gee, didn't see that coming :).
Thanks so much for everything and keep the Betta Madness going
S. WACHTER, FL

After tossing and turning all night with a bad
case of "waiting for my fish can't get to sleep!"
(LOL) I got up this morning got my fish, stared at them, (until I
was late for school LOL) and stared, and then after getting over the
shock of the beauty of the opaques (...) I just have to say a BIG
THANK YOU! FOR THE GR8 fish stock...and these GR8 males you
gave me for a gift! I gave them all one gallon homes with covers,
and will buy some NEW silk or like plants tomorrow (too risky to use
ones I already have, as they may cause disease! :(( ) So thanks a

to you by the end of the week. Lots of fun in the fish room ahead of me
today. Again, Thanks so much!!!"
E. FISHER, FL
They are so beautiful! Thank you for the extra Dreamcatcher
female. I would have contacted you sooner, but I have to share the
internet, and I was dealing with these treasures.
The package was ready and waiting at 7:30am I'm told. As I had
impromptu 8am interview, I was at the post office by 8:20am, (Like I
said, small village) as I knew they'd arrive today.
The tails on these guys... wow! Special thanks for that Opaque DT!!
box will be mailed back to you within the next two to three hours.

P. McGUIRE, LA
Thank you sooooooooooooo much for all that you had done. I
hope that you have a great time on your vacation. No hanky
panky now. Alright, I just wanted to say thank you and that
they are eating and already flaring to one another. Thank you
once again and your box should be on its way."
C. VU, MN
Faith! Stephen received the bettas today and all arrived in great
condition. Thank you for the extra females! The pastel is beautiful.
Stephen loves the Double Tails! We will be sending you back your box
Thursday. Thanks again."
Just wanted to let you
know that we picked the bettas up at noon today at the post
office. They appear to be in fine health and I am SLOWLY
acclimating them. They are really beautiful and exactly as
described. Thanks for the free boy and the microworms.
I will be sending your box back to you Monday, I have a dog
show this weekend in Minneapolis or I would be able to ship back
Saturday. Thanks again for the fish, I will be purchasing
more in the near future, hopefully a DT holy grail pair or two. By
the way that is quite a box, I love your labels.
Have a great weekend.
S. MOORE, MN
The local PO called me
at 6:15 this morning, and by 7:00 a.m., all had been inspected and
were floating in their new tanks. They are all coloring up
already. The black/red looked more white/red when I first
placed his bag in the water! Thank you for the adoptions! They are
both beautiful and will find a good home here. (...) Okay,
the betta fever has really hit! Your stock is so beautiful, I'll
be ordering more soon.
(...) I just wanted
you to know that the bettas are doing just fine. All of them
seem to have acclimated to their new water with no problems.
All of them ate well last night and today. One of the pet store
bettas of mine was so happy to see other bettas that he has built
a bubblenest! Have no fear though, I don't intend to breed him.
Poor little guy will just have to stare at the lovely ladies and
The black/red is
becoming more beautiful with every passing moment. He is so
active! All he really wants to do is show off to the ladies and
prove how big & bad he is to my other males!
By the way, the
recording sounded great! I checked out the BETTATALK website
last night and was so pleased to finally be able to hear your
music. I like! I plan to purchase the CD tonight!
I mailed your box back
to you Friday afternoon via Priority Mail. It should arrive
Monday. There are a couple of extra things in the box for you that I
hope you enjoy.
I mailed my IBC
Membership form today, you will have a NEW IBC Member ordering
from you next time! (With any luck, that will be in June!)
Thank you for
everything. I keep you posted about the babies and their babies
(which won't happen until at least July).
C. DEAS, NW
I am most impressed. A stupendous job all the way
around concerning this, my very first internet purchase of
any kind, including my first BETTA order. They are
acclimating nicely, their color is quite nice and coming
round by the half hour. The cull you sent me is very
though I have no idea what its sex is and have guessed it to
be possibly of blue marble DT heritage, cute indeed.
What's more is the red female started barring up within a
few minutes near the male in their bags, so I separated them
more in case this was stressful to them.
To say the least I am happy to report to you and any readers
of this email that my expectations were exceeded let alone
met, which in itself is an accomplishment. The betta
are gorgeous and I am very very excited (specially seeing I
have been sleepless since I ordered heheh :)) )
Anyway, I will by many more times from you I am sure, but
first I need to "acclimate" myself to the bettas
and test my "BETTABILITIES" from my adopted
mentor, Faith. Your site will be the root to my success, not
to mention the detailed instructions on acclimation, feeding
and water changes as well as the micro worm culture info.
Your new best betta buddy
Thank You, Thank You, Thank
They are sooooo Beautiful. Everyone arrived safe and sound and a few
with attitude.Even the culls are fabulous. You have been sooo
generous. I'm defintely buying from you from now on.I'm so pleased!
Did I say Thank you?
S. Perry, Waynesboro, VA
“Bettas are doing well. I must tell you, these fish
are so much more than what I expected. (…) The fish are extraordinary!!! I'm
so impressed. (…)I've ordered from others and you have the best I've seen!!”
L. CASH, FL
What a pleasant surprise to hear your actual voice over the phone!
detect that wonderful French accent. I was not expecting the
Wednesday or Thursday so it was a double treat not only to hear your
and know that my package is in the Miramonte Post Office waiting for
pick it up. (...)
Thank you for the quick turnaround. (...) I am very impressed
of your quality service.
I was pleasantly surprised to see 4 pairs of live bettas. All
of them are beautiful and have adjusted well. (...)
I hope that you got my 2 new orders i.e. 4M-FEM1 & 4GL-OPA5.
If I do not hear from you, have a wonderful Memorial Day
Weekend. I know I
will have a great time taking care and admiring my new betta babies.
P. LEONG, CA
They arrived! I
just unpacked them and they've been floating for about 15 minutes
while I read your instructions.
Everyone looks a bit
confused, but definitely alive and healthy! They are
absolutely beautiful! I love them all!
Thank you so much! "

“Hey Faith, Fish are here and all are doing well...I
will fatten'um up with some pinto beans and collar
greens. (just kidding) From
the bottom of my heart I would like to say thank you :) "
J. HARRELL, NC
“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
“Hello Faith. The fish have just arrived! You can
relax a little now. They are in the fish room acclimating. They look great.
Thank you. Incredibly professional data sheets, are you sure you're just a
hobbyist? Kidding. I admire the way you present and distribute your
"kids". You are quite the Betta person.”

|"The box is on
its way home. YEA!!!! All the babies are in their new
and seem to be adjusting very well. They all have very healthy
and they have their bellies full.
My females have gotten huge. They are little piggies
when it comes to
eating. OINK!! OINK!!
The smaller Apache male has really blossomed. He presses
his tank wall whenever I pass by and when I clean his tank he
fingers. He reminds me of a cat rubbing against my legs when
himself through my fingers.
One of the new chocos blew a bubblenest last night in his new home.
must be comfy. I set up a 10 gallon tank with 2 dividers for
the HG males
and one of the chocos. I was emptying out the bags this
morning and when I
turned back around to check on them, one of the HG's was squaring
the choco in his section of the tank. Hmmmm.... I
checked it out and the
HG found a section that was not quite square with the tank wall and
through. (kinda like a ferret can fit into anything)
Needless to say, it
has been fixed and they all are now content to flare at each other
the dividers. Whew!
Thanks again for everything, Faith!! You've done a great job
everything (bettas, website, etc....)

L. PHELPS, TX
I just had to tell you how terrific your betta's are!
They are like little puppies...they love attention and really have great
personalities. When I left for work today I felt like I should leave the TV on
with Mr. Rogers or it appears, more appropriately, the Discovery channel. Faith
they are really wonderful. The blue is absolutely gorgeous and the butterfly has
eyes like a deer.....do I
sound crazy? Wow, I think I'm the fish who is hooked.
Soooooo, I would like to be on a list for a bright red boy. When you have a
chance (is that statement like "when hell freezes over"?)... will
rephrase, when you are answering the thousands of your emails and in between
talk shows (that I am soooo excited about) please let me know availability and
Thanks again! “

“All four beauties, the yellow pair, and
two little opaque girls are all here, safe and sound, and you can breathe easy.

I picked up 2 BEAUTIFUL, healthy and happy
bettas this morning at 7:00 am at the post office. They are both doing very well
and they are so gorgeous! (Has me believing that I need a red, yellow, black,
violet, etc.........!!!) Thanks too for the explicit and wonderful instructions.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! YOU HAVE BEEN GREAT AND I AM SO PLEASED WITH YOUR (my)
BETTAS!!! Look forward to a future order”
A. SCHANK, UT
The post-office received the bettas today,
so my mom and I headed out promptly to pick them up. The box was just fine, and
when I got them home and opened it up the bettas were in there and smiling back
at me (...). Your packaging is BEAUTIFUL!!! And your instructions are well
written as well! (…) Thank-you so much for the piebald male, I love piebalds!!!
I also adore the marble female you sent me!!”
