|You must order
at least $60 worth of bettas and cultures (not including
plant orders, shipping fees and after any
discounts, credit etc...). Remember you can always add a
culture to turn a $50 or $55 order into a $60 minimum one! ;).
No, plants don't count cause I only make pennies on these
;). So use cultures to pump up your total from a near $60 to
a $60 or more.
Want to charge your
purchase on your credit card? I accept and highly recommend you use www.paypal.com
to pay for your order. Over 95% of my customers
use Paypal to send their payments. It is faster, safer and will allow me
to ship your bettas much sooner many times, as soon as the very next
morning!!!!!! I have used Paypal for many years now
and they have ALWAYS been very reliable. So use them!

pay with a money order.

not accept checks (duh)
|All order are
shipped via FEDEX. NO EXCEPTIONS.

remain my property and you are to promptly mail it
back to me.
responsible for postage to send the box back. In most cases
it will be between $5 and $6.
many people over the years ended up stiffing me (keeping the
boxes), I now have a box security deposit system. It's
simple and works great. When you order you will be asked to
leave a $25 deposit for the box. When the box makes it back
to me you get your whole deposit back. This insures everyone
stays motivated to mail back the box, wrapped and undamaged,
within 5 days from getting the fish. The $25 deposit is
FULLY refunded quasi instantly via paypal and no paypal fees will be charged,
so you get 100% of your money back :). (as in: the full $25
:) ). Note: For the sake of my sanity, I usually
process all box returns and refunds once a week (usually on
Fridays). So do not worry if your box reaches me on a Tuesday
and you do not get the refund Wednesday. However, if for
some strange reason, a week has gone by since the box
reached me and you still have not received your security
deposit back, do email me right away so we can check into
it. I'm really good at paper trail and keeping track of
things so there is rarely a mishap, but just in case, you
never know :). Note: VIP customers or people who
have ordered from me quite a few times may be exempt from
the deposit thingie cause you have already proved you are

|All our bettas
are bred by me or by one of our fine affiliated IBC Champion/seasoned
breeders. Our bettas come from well established
lines that have often been showing and placing on the IBC show
circuit. Some of the lines we carry consistently placed first,
and some have even won first at the IBC convention (the show
of shows, the BIGGEST, toughest, most competitive IBC
show of the year). In short our bettas carry great genes.

we carry and to see many gorgeous photos of our fish.|
|I do not
sell culls. I do not kill culls either :). "Culls" are
either runts, or have slight deformities or other flaws which makes
them unsuitable for good breeding. They find good, loving homes through my 'adopt-a-cull' adoption program.
When placing your order, you will be given the option to adopt one or
more culls if you so desire. Many thanks to all of you who have
participated in this adoption program and have given loving homes to
our special little friends. May the Lord richly bless you. (Sorry, you
cannot get culls unless you are a customer and placing a normal order at the same
time. This is to insure the culls will find good homes with people who
have been screened and will not end up with someone who does not have
adequate space, knowledge or resources to properly care for them).
Please do not feel obligated to adopt a cull. There is never any
pressure. If you cannot adopt a cull, no one will resent you or think
any less of you. |

not send funds for bettas unless you have heard back from me

Thank you for
