I received the Bettas. They are alive, in
good shape and just beautiful. Thanks for the opaque. I've never
young Bettas. It was more trouble carefully opening the box, than
the post office. They called me when the package arrived. I carried
out like a newborn baby. They will received the best of care.
D. JEFFERSON, MD
My new babies arrived today at 11:00a.m.
Whatta fast trip all the way from California! I am slowly
acclimating them to their new water just like you instructed.
I do have new mom nerves, though. (...)
I'm glad you told me that the fishies
will be pale for a week. I'll be excited to see how
they color up. The most popular one at work is the Opaque
male cull you sent! He is sure feisty. I'd swear
he's saying, "You let me out of this bag, girlie, and I'll
show you how to kick some tail fin!"
The two Apache males & the Apache
female all looking lively! (...) It's a good
thing I had to leave the set-ups at work or I'd be sitting up all
night with them! It's a good thing my hair is already gray!
Well, I'm sure you don't have time for
any more of my rambling. I'm still overwhelmed that I talked
to you "live" on the phone. Thanks for
helping me get set up with PayPal! What a great thing
Hugs & fishes
K. HAZELETT, MI
It me again thanks for the betta. WOW, Guess what! Thanks for
the extra betta Faith. I got my fish it came in today.. Well,
Guess i'll be talking to you soon again. When you get the orange
P. THAO, CA
The fish arrived today, they are absolutely gorgeous.
The poor apache
male, getting his ass kicked by a female! He probably told her to go
him a sandwich and she got sick of his lazy beer drinking attitude!
Thanks so much.
Just a short note to let you know that all the fish arrived alive
and healthy. I am floating them now as I am writing this.
The fish are gorgeous as usual. Thanks for the extra females.
I am sure they will be put to good use. LOL
P. DELIO, WA
Just wanted to let you know that my
microworm cultures are blooming. If you have any customers
experiencing similar problems, I recommend punching 6-8 small
holes in the Tupperware lid with a pushpin. That way you don't
have to lift the lid and the worms get just enough air.
Also, my Blue Moon pair spawned this week.
The eggs are just hatching. I've never had an easier spawn! Even
an hour or so after the female stopped dropping eggs, they just
kept going...Maybe I should rename my male Casanova!
Thanks for everything.
I received the Bettas today. They look
J. PASCUA, HI
OH Thank You!!! They are so
beautiful, I was so delighted to see the pastels, that means a lot
to me. Thank you again, and for the advice. I got a snail and I am
going to see what happens.
Betta madness is with me :)
S. GADIS, WV
Just wanted to let you know the bettas arrived safely. They are beautiful! Also thank you for the culls. They are very pretty too and they will have a good home here. The water they were shipped in is so clean it is amazing! Obviously you have perfected the shipping of Bettas.:) I will look forward to doing business with you again. Well, back to acclimating my new babies. Have a great day!
I was wondering if you would be
sending other bettas along with my two pairs of white crystals. If
so, could you let me know, then i will make proper arrangements.
Either way its cool. Also, by the way, thank you for the extra's
that you did send me, they are very lovely. Thank you very much. I
thought that i would let you know that i did receive my shipment
today, and i shall be sending you box off to you either manana, or
segundo dia ( the next day). Thank you again, and i hope to hear
from you soon.
My new fishies arrived safe and sound this morning. I'm so pleased
with them that I'm just about to place another order!
S TANNER, MN
Faith, I got the culture and
now I have zillions of micro-worms in my culture.
Getting ready to prepare a back-up culture as it's recommended in
your protocol. I left my bettas spawning today.....wish me luck :o)
Thank you for contacting me today, and for your support.
P.S Saw the pictures of the last meeting at the Amazon. Disappointed
that I'm not in any of them (I had to leave early). Maybe next time.
|The bettas are all alive and in
great shape. Last night they were stressed. This morning they ate
good and were flaring. The turquoise pair are Caesar and Cleopatra.
Haven't named the pretty cull yet. I was so anxious to pick up the
bettas that I called the post office a day before they were due to
see if they had come in. I am waiting for a chocolate male and
a twilight pair. Box will be mailed today.
D. JEFFERSON, MD
|The fishies arrived safely...and
they are absolutely gorgeous! Thanks again, and I will mail the box
back to you on Monday.
S. TANNER, MN
Just wanted to let you know that my beautiful bettas arrived today.
I picked them up this morning. The black splash pair is
awesome and the opaque DT male cull is so cute! :)
I just have to let you know....I placed the bags in their tanks and
began to float them, I left the room for about 10 minutes and when I
went back to check on them I was amazed! The
bettas were no longer a grayish color but a dark vibrant black
against white....the male was flaring, showing off for the the
female and the female was already showing horizontal bars and doing
the "head down dance"!!!
Awesome bettas....need I say more?!?
:) :) :) Thanks so much....
S. NAIL, NM
Got fish. Look fine. The female
is turning the heads of 2 males in 2 adjacent bowls to hers, and it
looks like she's making googlie eyes at them herself ;).
J. HOM, CA
My new fishies arrived safe and sound. They're beautiful, healthy
fish, and I'm very pleased with all of them!
S. TANNER, MN
The Bettas have arrived in good condition and look nice. The
already on its way back to you. Thank you very much.
J. SELLERS, AL
I got my Holy Grail trio today, about an hour ago, just picked them
up from the post office. Now we're all home and they're floating in
their bags in their respective 1-gallon tanks. And bag-biting and
going "let me OUT!" I might add :) They all look
fine. One male and the female are amazingly calm about the whole
thing and look like they were just moved from one shelf in a
fishroom to the other, not shipped cross-country. The second male
seems a little more stressed, but absolutely nothing beyond normal
travel stress and I'm sure he'll settle down once he's acclimated
and in his tank later. (I've seen worse stress in fish just coming
home from a local store.) They look beautiful, and I can't
wait to settle them in and breed them in a few weeks.
Thanks a lot!
D. HEIDEMAN, IN
They are doing great. I spawned the
first green pair. It's miraculous how the male is so
attentive. Day five and he is still attending the nest,
gathering fallen fry and blowing them back into the nest. I
hope they start horizontally swimming by this evening He
(George has to be worn out. Mama Gracie recovered fine from
the spawn. They did not tear each other up, just flared.
This was as amazing experience.
Just a quick note to let you know that
the betta trio arrived. All three are gorgeous, but I am
especially struck by how beautiful the females are. I
expected the male to be magnificent (and he is), but I
expected the females to be plain -- how wrong I was!
Thank you again
The male 4th of July and 2 females arrived safely. (My wife
actually picked them up at 2:00pm, but she's afraid to open the
box or "play with the fishies in bags" so they had to
wait for "daddy" to get home.) The females are acclimating
to their new home in a heavily planted community 30 gallon.
They're so little and cute. The 1+ year olds that the LFS just
aren't the same.
Samson, the male is still resting in the box. He's going to work
with me tomorrow morning. He has a fully cycled Explorer with
Java Moss waiting for him there. (I figured it was much lower
stress for him to stay in the box rather than acclimating him,
then moving him again...) Wrap the Java Moss near the intake...
Does wonders for the marginally too high flow rate... Java Moss
likes the goodies flowing through too. Everybody wins.
Peace, love and bettas
-D. KERNS, CA
AHHHH! My babies are
here and well! Thank you so much; they're beautiful. (Also
thanks for the cull - his name is Quasimodo). I will ship your
box back on Friday.
V. SCROGGINS, AR
The bettas have arrived and they are
beautiful. The purple/blue trio are breathtaking. The
females are so bright they seem to glow! I will send the
box back by Friday.
|Thank you:) Arrived
alive and well even though shipping took two days.
I was worried lol, but I've recovered.
The fish are beautiful and I look forward to doing business
with you again.
C. GARTHE, WA
The bettas arrived, they are acclimating right now. They are
so cute. The male is "very" active and happy to see
the others. I have put them in my isolation jars next to each
other, and have added just a little bit of my prepared water
with the water they came in. I know it is going to take
"several" hours for them to adjust to the water
here............. it has a
PH of 6.8 from the tap. In a little while I plan to feed them
frozen brine shrimp. I want to give them some peace 'n quiet
first some they don't get upset tummys.
Thank you for the culls, they are all so cute.
T. ULRICK, NY
|All the bettas arrived
just fine. The adoptee has a pretty nice personality....the
other one has an attitude LOL. The females are very pretty.
They are in 2-10 gallon tanks with dividers in them.
They have acclimated nicely.
T. RILL, MD
|Hello Faith, just letting
you know the fishies arrived safe and sound. I'm
acclimating them to their tanks right now. The new guy
will get a 2.5g with filter all to himself for a while, and
I've already introduce the new gal, who I've dubbed
"Faith" in honor of her mommy, to the other ladies
in my female tank. The matron of the tank, an absolutely
HUGE royal blue
crowntail named Lady, approves of her, so there should be no
Still working on a name for the new guy.
Wonderful fishies! Can't wait to see the babies!
J. CASWELL, CO
AHHHHH! Sorry, I am soooo
excited. Both my
little girls are home and
floating in the tank.
They seem fine and frisky!
Today is going to be
entirely devoted to them.
you sooo much!!!
|They are here. Angel
& Blessed are here!! They are so beautiful, I can't
wait to get them home. I am at my job now, I can't work
I'm so excited about them. How long can they stay in the
bags? I won't be home for 8 1/2 hours is that too long?
Thank you so much Faith, thank you thank you. You are
the best. I can't wait to purchase more from you.
Your fish are very active ( that's a
good thing). I can't wait to get a cardinal red &
tangerine fish to add to my others. They enjoy the company.
I really envy you for the time you take and the care you give
your fish. There is no one else like you out there.
I hope to one day have 1/2 the setup you have to give all the
care. I may one day breed my bettas, but I'm scared.
Thank you again.
N. CAMPBELL, MO
I received my bettas this morning. There are all doing
great, floating in their bags right now. The green
halfmoon sub is beautiful; I'm very happy with him.
The Green Moon male is just breathtaking! The females
look really great as well. They all look very healthy!
Thanks for sending such great fish. I'll be sending
your box back tomorrow.
C. EMERSON, CA
Hey Faith, just wanted to let you know
that my bettas arrived today safe and sound. They look
great and I've started getting them acclimated. Thanks a
ton for these gorgeous fish! :-)
J. DEVOE, NY
I wanted to let you know I've received the bettas and they are
sooo beautiful!!:) They are all fine, but scared. I have them
floating in their tanks right now, and will slowly acclimate
them. My grandfather is going to mail the box back tomorrow.
Thank you so much, you have been a real help and i love my new
S. ROBERTS, NY
Just to let you know the 3 fish are
home & safe! Swimming nicely, alert, and
sooooo beautiful! Thanks again for awesome bettas!
Until next time,
C. SMITH, FL
|Aries is awesome! I put
him in my 10 gallon for a day and then put Mars (my red
crowntail female) in the breeder trap and put her in the tank.
I put a divider up and put Isabell (the cull I adopted) on the
other side of the trap. Aries went nuts!!!!!!!!!! Two females
in the one
tank and he can't get to them!??????!!!!!!!! HE is soooooo
full of energy. IT is like shipping didn't even phase him! He
eats like a pig too! But he acts like eating is a big
chore----because, you know---he has to impress the females! :)
HE has even started to blow a bubble nest and I am not
planning on trying to breed for another two weeks. I just
wanted them to see one another and get fattened up a bit and
all stoked to breed.
(the steel blue male) has already blown a bubble nest too---he
flirts with Blue Morning (the female steel) all the time and
even she has blown a bit of a nest in hers! She is the
ultimate piggy! She eats sooo much!
for your time and patience----
care Faith and don't work too hard! :)
Kristin and the Crowntails
I sent you an email on Thursday to let you know that they
arrived safely. Did you get it? You probably get a
lot of email, I know LOL. Anyway, yes they arrived just
fine and I absolutely LOVE them. They are eating fine
and both males already have very nice bubble nests built.
The apaches are amazing, I could not be more pleased!
The crown tail male split his tail during shipping but it has
fused back together and you can't even tell. The little
cull is the cutest little thing and feisty too, according to
him, he is the best of the bunch, LOL.
Your box is on it's way back to you, I mailed it today as I
couldn't get to the post office over the weekend, my hubby got
sick and needed me (you know men!).
Thank you VERY much!
D. OSBORNE, IL
The bettas arrived this morning around
9:00am. They are all fine and sitting in their little
baggies getting used to the water in their tanks. I'll keep
adding water to their bags over the next 24 hours to slowly
acclimate them to their new environments. The two females
will be together in a 10 gallon. I'll watch them carefully
to make sure they get along. They'll get some frozen brine
shrimp once they're in their tanks and less stressed.
Thanks so much, ma'am! They are all
beautiful little fish. I look forward to seeing them grow
into gorgeous adults.
K. BROWN, IN
Bettas arrived safely today...the male is beautiful, even when
resting and female is extremely lively and already trying to
get at him :) Thank you!
Box will be sent back on Monday.
L. EE, MA
I caught Hell from the Post Office and Isabel while trying to take delivery of my new bettas. After three hours of driving back and forth
through Isabel, I finally got my bettas from the rookie postal worker.
The bettas were in good shape and they are still doing fine. Isabel had
turned the power off just about everywhere in Virginia. I was not able to e-mail you until this morning in regards to the health
of my new babies. I'll be sending your box back this evening. I hope the
Post Office is back to operating at full strength.
B. PHILLIPS, VA
Faith, how are
you?......yes, I did get the
fish, all safe and sound.
Both are happy little
acclimated well, and have
been eating frozen
Bloodworms and Brine Shrimp
A pleasure doing business
Have received the 4 bettas, and am
happy to report that they are all swimming & active,
despite their busy day with the postman.
I am hoping to get this box in the
mail to you on Saturday. Again, thanks for beautiful
& healthy bettas!!!
Cheryl, Hilary & Natalie, FL
I received the Bettas today around 2:00 PM. They are doing
well and were very hungry. I gave them a little brine
shrimp and they tore it up. They are being floated in
their new tank and seem to be doing very well. I will mail
your box tomorrow.
T. PARNELL, TN
|Well… (...) ALL TEN OF THEM have ARRIVED SAFE
AND SOUND! :)
They are SOOOOOO beautiful! Even as "paled" and
pissed off (and boy are they pissed off) as they are, they
are still more than I could've ever expected. :D
You truly DO kick all Betta-Bootie!!!! The
pictures you post don't do the real fish justice (and even the
pics look incredible!) I promise - they'll all be spoiled
completely ROTTEN! ;)
This being my very first ever internet
fish purchase, I didn't know what to expect. I've read
pretty much your ENTIRE site now (including every single last
one of your references), so I wasn't TOO worried. However,
I still had a few reservations. You have COMPLETELY and
TOTALLY put faith (no pun intended <g>) in me to continue
to buy BettaTalk Bettas for years to come. :)
The service and quality you provide are beyond exceptional, and
it's blatantly obvious that you truly love your little finned
Carrie - who's going to leave early
today to get the new kids home. ;)

Thanks so much for the extras!!!
I'm even excited about the orange cull - he's particularly
cute and feisty!
I can't really tell too much about
them right now, since they're pale from stress but they're
all very active and look like they've come through just
great. I haven't totally unpacked them since I'm still
at work, but the water feels kind of cool, so I have them
sitting on top of the peanuts right now to warm up...they
will be fine in there bags until this evening or even
tomorrow, right? I am planning on starting acclimation
this evening, but have an unexpected engagement now.
One of the guys at work made a joke
about them swimming in Windex...I assume there's some
conditioner and stress stuff in there to keep them cool and
Anyway, THANKS! I was gonna send
your box back today, but since it's cold here, I'll need it
to get them home and I'll send the box tomorrow.

superior to anyone
else. Thank you!

Sounds good... someone will be around to pick them up. Thanks
again... can't wait to see them. I really admire what you've

work! Also, thanks for getting back to me so fast... I didn't
expect to have them shipped so soon! ty again

What a *pretty* batch of fish!
Thanks so much. I will be shipping your box pack on Wed Oct
1 as I actually live in Canada and drive across to the US
only twice a week.
Bettas are here and are doing very
well. They are all beautiful! The marble male is beautiful,
and his sibling female is one of the prettiest marble
females I have ever seen. The colors on the Emerald Dawn
plakat are absolutely gorgeous! Will have your box in the
mail on Monday.
Thanks a lot,
