from customers who have purchased my bettas
I just open the bettas
from the (much loved box!! lol ) and they were fantastic!!!!
very gorgeous and very perky! They are floating in there new
homes now and are already flaring their tails and looking
around. They are spectacular and like you said will produce
some beautiful butterflys! I even got some special food for
them today, (frozen blood worms were the recommended) And I
love the little personal note you left on the bag! ( the
male is definitely not flesh tone. lol!!) he is more
gorgeous then I thought. thank you faith they are great and
this has been the most wonderful experience to get these
little jewels in the mail. Take care, and god bless you!
Your babies are going to be little princesses and princes!
M. ORO, CO
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. ;)
C. ROLLAND, TN
I just got my new bettas and they're gorgeous! They are very
healthy and active. Thanks again :)
L. ANTONUK, PA
I GOT 'EM!!! The people at the
post office were like, "The package has FISH in
They are so small and cute! I
never bought any but the petshop ones that are already full
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.
T. SCOTT, KY
to be a suck-up, but
your bettas really are
the best I've ever
found. I have
bought on-line before,
and your packaging and
strain quality are far
superior to anyone
else. Thank you!
S. FARBER, MI
Sounds good... someone will be around to pick them up. Thanks
again... can't wait to see them. I really admire what you've
done... it takes a lot of time and effort. Keep up the awesome
work! Also, thanks for getting back to me so fast... I didn't
expect to have them shipped so soon! ty again
L. ANTONUK, PA
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,
~M. MAC CLUSKEY, CT
P.S. Thanks again for calling and
offering me the emerald female...

Hello Faith! The betta
order (4 plakats, blue/green halfmoon female) has arrived

Thanks again! Hope to order from you again soon!
J. MARRON, MD
I received the bettas today and they
are all alive and alert. They are all so very
beautiful and I'm very pleased. Thanks again for the
quick prompt service. Cant wait for more stock
to become available. Looking forward to
purchasing some satin flames and apaches. Thanks
again for everything!
E. ARAKAKI, HI
The betta fish got here
A-OK. They're currently floating in their little bags in
acclimating. Thank you for your excellent job shipping!
The heating back was still warm :D
L. BROWNING, LA
My daughter and wife picked up the
Betas today and they are doing
just fine. Beautiful creatures. Don't worry, I stopped them
from releasing them from the bag until tomorrow. If you want
me to keep you posted on their progress let me know.
Thanks for taking such good care of our
babies while you were raising them. I hope we can do as good a
job. I will let you know when we let them spawn.
J. MONFILS, WI
They arrived just fine on Friday. I no longer have internet
access at home, this is the first I could let you know.
I am stopping at the post office tonight to mail your box
Thanks Faith, they're beautiful.
J HOBBINS, OH
Bettas safe & happy :)
Natalie has claimed the turquoise pair, and the ct's are
now Hilary's - good thing I got both pairs or I'd be in
trouble! They've now joined the ranks of Xtremely
Cheryl & girls, FL
Hi Faith -
I received the bettas today and they are alive and well!
(...) They are quite beautiful; very vibrant color on
the male Tutti Frutti, and I've never seen a female like this
one! They are in their individual large vases (for
awhile) with a little Bettamax, just for grins.
Thanks for such an easy and fast transaction and all your
detailed instructions. They are a big help and
practically foolproof. And of course, thanks for the
GOREGOUS fish! I look forward to buying from you again;
you make it too easy for those hooked on bettas!
Oh, and I will mail your box tomorrow!
C. HUMBERTSON, MD
The blue splash and orange pairs are
all doing very well. All four girls are in a
10-gallon together, and they're getting along famously!
Thanks again for raising such beautiful fish. I'll be
watching your website frequently in hopes of finding a
black and white splash pair.
K. BROWN, IN
Indy Betta Mom (and lovin' it!)
My fun new fishies are here. (...)
They are all doing peachy, the culls
have their own dorm for now, and the Mr. and Mrs. are headed
for a two bedroom penthouse. They are all sitting in
their bags getting used to their new Pacific Beach H2O
Thanks a million Faith. I will
give all my fishies a good home and tons of love!!
K. MOHR, CA
The cardinal reds and yellows are
here and they are beautiful! I have them soaking and will
send your box back on Monday.
Thanks for the awesome job you do.
These gorgeous babies
arrived at my home on Sept
11, 2003. I thought I
would show you how great
they are doing, I'm so proud
of them! Your Apaches
have got to be the most
gorgeous bettas I have ever
D. OSBORNE, IL
Hello! I just wanted to
let you know that I received my little beauties, everything
went smoothly. I was so excited. (...) thank you so
much. Also I shall be wrapping your box wonderfully and
shipping it off this week. Thank you for your time,
T. AZZARO, CT
Hello!! I received the betta's
just now. It's 10:00 AM in Minnesota. All
three look very well. 1 female and 2 males.
Royal Blue Crown Tails. I also received the
microworms. Everything looks wonderful. I will
make sure the box gets back to you along with everything
in it except for the heat pad. Thank you very much.
I have been anticipating this and am so very excited to
see them in their tanks. My head is swimming (of
course, it could just be my coffee:)
M. VOORHEES, MN
I just got my bettas from the post office, and I am SO HAPPY you
take the extra time and effort in packing them. (...)
Thank you so much for caring about the lives of your bettas.
Anybody else would have them packed in sandwich bags with a
teaspoon full of water and no heater!!! Thank you again.
R. MESSER, TN
Good afternoon I have finally made it
home form the post office with the new Betta babies. All nine
of the Bettas are in happy and active condition swimming
around in their little bags there is no doubt that all are
quite alive and look very healthy. Thank you for the two
free Bettas you included with the others.
Over all I could not be more pleased in
spite of fires and all of my worrying every one arrived in
good health and bright eyed if a bit pale. I look
forward to doing business with you again very soon.
The box will come back to you on Monday
with my well wishes and of course with my prayers
concerning the fires and Ladybug's health I have an ancient
Jack Russell terrier and know how precious they become
Thanks Again, Sincerely
SS. MYERS, FL
Hi, just wanted to let you know the
bettas arrived safely today after much hassle with the
USPS. (...) but the bettas
are safe and feisty hehe. I think the female has more
attitude than both males hehe, she's a cutie! The cull is
still a pretty guy, far outshines my old man pet store
betta (who can barely flare, his fins are that pathetic,
although he did get huffy for a few when I first put them
on the shelf).
So anyways, thank you for the
beautiful bettas! Will be shipping back the box asap! :)
:) S. JOHNSON, NJ
My bettas have arrived safely, thank you! All four are
beautiful and the Golden Crusaders look exactly like I had
hoped. (...) they are all feisty, active and absolutely
D. OSBORNE, IL
Got them !!!!!!!!!!! I picked them up
this morning, Saturday Nov 1, 2003, and they look GOOD
! Well had their water treated as you suggested and
food for them when I got them home. They seem to be in good
shape so I am happy with them. (...)
Thanks a lot, now i can get
serious about breeding my fish :-) I'll most likely make a
new order some time in the Spring when the weather is warm.
It's still 78-80 here, I'm real close to Atlanta, Ga. So,
I'll keep checking out your web site !!!
Thanks Again :-)
R. CLARK, GA
All my 20 fishies are doing great.
The green crowntail pair are in my room in their two
bedroom condo, happily making me watch their every move
and playing in my hand mirror~
The culls are growing nicely,
haven't lost a one of them. Most blue splash and
there are a few crystals. Only a couple of the ones
which are striped with red. Look like they may be
butterfly but time will tell. I have most of
them paired off in their big vase/wine carafe combos for
now. I can't wait to see how beautiful they all are
when fully grown!
Thanks for all the free fish!
I love their little souls!
All the fishies arrived unharmed and
eager to eat. Bloodworms for breakfast...mmmmmmmm. They're
all gorgeous! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the little
black splash cull male. He is DARLING! I instantly named him
Dinky, because he's such a cute, dinky little thing. Spotty
the greenmoon is keeping his name, the red marble male is,
of course, Red. And the black melano male is Mel. Not too
creative, I know, but the names are easy to remember. The
females will be a little harder...for now, they're just
Everyone's in their baggies getting
used to their new water slowly. Thanks so much for all your
hard work in shipping these guys. I will wrap up your box
tonite and send it off Priority Mail tomorrow morning.
Take care, Faith. You're the best!
K. BROWN, IN

tanks. Thanks so much, and I am sure we will be in touch

The bettas arrived this morning. Everyone
looks good. I'm sure they are happy to be out of their box.
Speaking of the box... I'm going to keep it...JUST KIDDING :)
I'm going to try to mail it out tomorrow. Thank you again.
Your bettas are in good hands.
K KELLER, CA
Got fish! They are alive and beautiful
(and the female is very pissed off and flaring :)
Thank you thank you thank you! I am going grocery shopping
this afternoon for the sole purpose of getting bags to
wrap the box and send back, so you'll get it soon.
The ivory male you sent me might
be the prettiest fish in the world! :) He
started blowing a bubble nest while he was still floating
in the bag!
--S. KASEN, FL

gorgeous. Even the female cull is beautiful.
Thank you, again
Hi Faith ,
Bettas arrived all alive... 'floating'
Fish look good, (...) I see what you
mean bout the plakats, they were all flaring like crazy, no
Have a nice one talk to ya
S. ANDERSON, WA
I wanted to make it a point to write and tell you how much I
~love~ the Betta Painting that I ordered in the "Betta
Art" section! I think it's amazing, the way Jerry
was able to "capture" my fish, and paint him;
everyone "recognizes" who it is! I treasure
the painting, and think
that other Betta lovers would probably adore these paintings
Take Care, Holly
They are all here, and they are absolutely
I can easily see why mom was gushing
when she dropped them off at my house.
I will have your box wrapped and back
to you asap.
And I will take good care of the
melano cull, knowing me I will be doting on all of them.
You have a good weekend. and You will
prob. hear from me in the future, ;) about another order.
But that won't be till i have more space.
The buggers call to each other rofl.
M. Callahan, NV
My Bettas arrived this morning, they look find, and I am
following the directions that you sent me with them. This has
been a fun and for sure different morning.

indications. I look forward to get some more fish from you.
I'll ship your box tomorrow.
J CASTRO, TN
Faith, You rock, and are
a professional, and that's why I chose you. Your 2 Betta's are
out of their box and floating in their bags to start the
process, and they are VERY cute, cant wait to see em grow,
little male is already flaring with attitude like he's a big
man :D They are SAFE, and have NEW 2.5 gallon homes to live
in. Once again, thank you, your box will be mailed tomorrow,
and you have just made (another) soon to be repeat customer :)
B Lonzo, CA
I let the fishes go in their one
gallon homes and can view them. I am very happy with
the fish and appreciate the extra fish.
My daughter is claiming the plakat for
her own and he is of very high quality! They all appear
very strong. It has been a

J. GONZALES, FL
a brief note to let you
know that my bettas
arrived safe and sound
this am. They are
currently being acclimated
to their new home and seem
to be doing well at this
you so very much.
I got everybody!!! The satin flame
and apache are perfectly healthy (and pissed):) The runts are
sooooo cute! (...) Good grief! I bet they took longer to pack
than the rest of your orders combined! Thanks again!
R. MESSER, TN
The beautiful ones have arrived and
much faster than last time however your box has paid the
price for their hurry it is a bit beat up (just the
outside). I will ship it back either today or Monday, The
bettas didn't even seem to be shaken up after warming for
a while and getting used to the new digs/ water. When I
left for work tonight they where swimming the front of
their jars asking just when I planned to serve breakfast
or did I just plan to starve them they look great ( and
they'll get blood worms in the morning in small amounts)
(...) these guys look as I said great, the turquoise Is
now named Butch because of his butch cut.
(...) The CD is good music we
all enjoyed it tonight at work. Great, now if I can keep
my son from borrowing it on a permanent basis I'll get to
enjoy it some more at home on a better system your
sitar playing is lovely. Thanks again, hope to hear
form you soon about the culture.
S. MYERS, FL
All the babies arrived safe
and I will be jetting your box back to you..

sending the box back tomorrow!
R. SALMONSON, MA
I got the bettas today. They look to
be in good condition and all have been fed lightly and
gobbled the food quickly. I am adding water to their bags
slowly as instructed. I will release them from the bags Saturday
when full. The box has been shipped back today as per
instructions. Hopefully they will color up soon so I can see
what they look like. I'll send an update next week.
I got my bettas today! Thank you so much. I really
appreciate all of the care you put into packing and shipping
them. They all look great! Thanks for the two culls,
too! (...) I
look forward to ordering from you again soon.
S. KASEN, FL
Well, I got the fishies! (...) Thanks so much for the
extra splash females! (...) All the females are
lively and eager to get out! I can tell already
that one of the splash females has an ATTITUDE…she was
trying to poke her way out of the bottom of the bag when
I carried her to the tank!
I will be sending your box back in the next day or so. Thanks
again for great fish!
S LAWSON, CA
Dropping you a line to let
you know that the bettas arrived today. All looks
well with them. They are still in their bags
acclimating. Can't really see their colors
yet. But they all look healthy. I will
get your box back to you ASAP.
G. BLACKLEDGE, OK
PS thanks for the Extra
Thank you!!! How nice of
you - I bought two nice frames and both of the BEAUTIFUL
paintings are now surrounding the BEAUTIFUL RAKU (which is
extraordinarily beautiful!!!). I am thinking about
ordering another one - have to save some money for it.

customer of Bettatalk (the BEST site on the internet for Betta

treatment. Can't wait to
