I'm nice and sometimes I do split pairs
just to help you out !
As you know, we sell
bettas in pair. We sell them that way because almost all our
customers are wanting to breed and well, you can't breed two males
or two females together LOL (guess you could try but don't hold your
All the bettas we get
are paired up, with the occasional loose single male or female.
Breaking a pair to sell just one of the mates usually results in the
other mate becoming real hard to sell because now it is missing the other
piece of the genetic puzzle (think of it as a $100 bill you tear in
half and give away one half and get stuck with the other :(
Having said that, in
an effort to help those of you who are not breeders, don't want to
breed and are sure they never will, I have decided to create this
With this form you
can submit a request for me to split up to two pairs for you.
Please note that I reserve the right to say Ye or Ne, for some pairs
I cannot split (rare genes, strains that are in demand but hard to
Splitting of pairs to
sell you just a single betta is done as a favor, so no promises on
my end and please no great expectations on yours ;), but I'll try to
help you out if I can.
Also email me if for some strange reason, you are unable to submit the form
below (and only if you are unable to). Form usually works
great but if you do not get a confirmation page after you hit
"submit", or if you do not heard back from me within 7
days, then for sure email me!
provide the necessary customer & shipping information :)
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
I need the info
below to fill your shipping label. So FOCUS! PAY ATTENTION!! Make
sure to fill ALL fields, so your name and your address and phone
are EXACTLY as you want them to appear on the shipping label. You
mess this up, and your bettas might end up in the Bermuda Triangle
(get my drift?). Double check your phone number! One bad digit
could = lots of headaches for the both of us! All
fields marked with an * are required to be filled. OK, are you focused?
Are you paying attention? Proceed :).
also offering live daphnia cultures !!
**Note: Help me give you
faster service by consistently using the same above email account to email
me about this order. All orders are filed by screen names, so switching
can cause confusion and delays.
Which phone number do you
want listed on your shipping label? The USPO will call that number to
let you know the bettas have arrived, so pick the one that is most
convenient for you (may it be home or work or cell):
enter that phone number
In case of emergency I might need to contact
you about your order, so please do provide:
let's talk about your order :)
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
No lots numbers =
Make sure to list
each lot number, description and price otherwise your order will
be rejected. Take the time to do this right, or you will lose the
NOT ORDER UNLESS YOU WANT THE FISH
tell us which bettas you would like to purchase:
are allowed up to 2 single bettas but I cannot split more than
2 lots for you. Enter below your (one or two) lots of choice.
Indicate whether you want just the male or just the female.
Also, enter the pair price as listed on the stock page, I will
then compute the price portion of the male or female you want
and get back to you with final adjusted price and order total.
each lot in detail lot price
enter possible other lot choices you would accept if I cannot
split one or both of the pairs you listed above. The more
other options you give me, the less the chances of me
saying No way Jose ;).
if you are local and are
thinking about picking up the bettas click here
time customers! You
may be asked to leave a security deposit for the
insulated shipping box, this to insure you are motivated
to return it promptly :). Don't worry, deposit is FULLY
refunded and no paypal fees will be assessed, so you get
ALL your money back RIGHT AWAY when I get the box back.
Too many people have been keeping their boxes :( so I
need to start protecting my shipping tools :)so to keep
orders going out in a timely manners. Making these boxes
is VERY time consuming, so please be nice and mail them
back promptly, in good condition and WRAPPED! thank you.
Your total (including shipping
fee & cultures) will be calculated and emailed to you when I reply.
select a payment method:*
Males are usually about 60 to 70% of the price of a lot,
while females may be 30 to 40%. This varies depending on
strain. I will let you know what the price of your
single betta ends up being when I reply to your request.
is a $10 split fee per order (up to 2 lots)
there is a $50 minimum order, so your order will always
have to be $50 or more regardless of what you ordered,
otherwise I cannot process it. If you are splitting only
one pair that is listed at $50 or less, you will end up
paying $50 for the one betta. It may be best to then ask
me to split two pairs for you, or pick up a more
expensive pair, or add a CD to make your order
$50 and get more for your money that way.
can you adopt some additional, free bettas?
TIME CUSTOMERS ONLY: Surprise betta
this is your first time ordering from us, you are
eligible to receive a "surprise" betta. Betta
sex, size or color may vary according to availability
and cannot be predicted. If you do not have the room for
a surprise betta, please let us know. We want to make
sure your surprise betta will be housed properly so if
you do not have room for an extra bowl / tank, better
let us know now! :)
I have room so please send me my surprise betta (we
will send you the surprise betta).
room is tight right now so better not send me a surprise
will NOT send you the surprise betta then).
, adoptions and extra bettas
Please note that culls or extras are sent only if available. I cannot
guaranty or promise to have culls or extra bettas to send to you, but if I
do, and you have checked the proper boxes, then you will get some. Do not
be alarmed if you open your box and find no bags marked:
"adoption" or "extra".
I have room for free extra
occasion I might be able to spare some extra stock.
I am willing to give a cull
a good home Culls
are either healthy but flawed fish (unsuitable for breeding
or for resale), or flawless but damaged fish (Halfmoon with
torn tails, maybe very slight tail rot, etc...). The later
can be used for breeding and carry all the same great genes.
However they will require a little investment of time, TLC
and meds to heal up.
Send up to 4 culls, I have
lotsa room and love!
3. what other betta related products would you like:
your betta a ZING! A great betta disease preventative
and cure. This med is perfect to administer to bettas in
jars since it is liquid (use 1 drop per quart jar).
Makes it simple and easy to dose. This is my own recipe
and is a great substitute to our beloved (but defunct)
"bettamax" (Aquatronics went out of business
so no one can find Bettamax anymore boohoo... So I came
up with this narly substitute!). I tested this on my own
fish as a preventative and also on sick fish as a cure
and it gave amazing results. This great med will protect
your bettas from a multitude of ailments and is
extremely effective against betta's biggest foes:
Velvet, parasites and fungal infections. Just like
Bettamax, this is not meant to cure severe bacterial
infections. But for example, if your bettas get clamped
fins or stiff fins this will in most cases fix it
pronto! A must have for all betta hobbyists! Use it as a
preventative to protect your bettas or use it to treat
affected fish. Comes with detailed instructions.
BettaZing! It's a bettta thing! (boy am I good at coming
up with slogans? Or am I good?? :) )
me a dose of BettaZing! $10 concentrated
formula - comes in a fish bag. Shipped along with your
me double dose, I know I'll use it! $20 Twice
the Zing :) two bags of BettaZing concentrated
like a starter clump of java moss/fern plant* (a betta's best
Subject to availability. If Java Moss is not available I will
send Java Fern and visa versa.
Fern will grow to look like this
WE HAVE FRESH JAVA FERN IN STOCK NOW :))!
is much prettier and more decorative than Java moss
and less messy. It too, can survive without gravel and
tolerates colder water temps, high or low PH. It is also a
betta breeder's favored plant. However it is not as effective
at cleaning up nitrites and ammonia then Java Moss. Hence when
moss is in season, I will send moss. Java fern starter clumps
are made of several young plants with usually only 2 to 3
leaves each. Don't worry, they will grow LOL.
Moss free floating in a jar
starter clump will effectively keep nitrite and ammonia levels down
to a near ZERO between water changes for up to 5 half gallon betta bowls
(cost to keep water cleaner per betta = $2 :) ). I recommend
getting 2 starter clamps of moss, so you have a little
extra left to play with. This is a
hard to kill plant that will do great in betta bowls and has
no special light requirement. Can survive in low light or high
light, low PH or high PH. Gravel or NO gravel. Prefers still
water, like our bettas :)). Will keep your fish healthier
between water changes. Comes with complete instructions.
a new customer so please send me a free MICROWORM culture Please
note that adult bettas will never eat microworms. Hence,
only request a microworm culture if you have, or intend
to have, small fry to feed.
am a recurring customer but I completely killed my last
culture so please send me another MICROWORM culture for
an additional $10 If you are a
recurring customer and previously received a free culture you
need a new culture unless you have completely killed your last
one. Adding a new sample of microworms to an
already established culture is completely useless and a waste
of your money! So, save your money and only request a
refresher culture if you are fairly sure you murdered your
last culture LOL!
adding an extra $10 to receive a VINEGAR
EEL culture with my order Please
note that adult bettas will never eat vinegar eel.
Hence, only request a vinegar eel culture if you have,
or intend to have, small fry to feed.
also send me a beautiful raku betta sculpture
for $60 extra (Raku bettas shipped separately -
shipping and insurance fees included in the $60 price)
so maybe this one has almost nothing to do with bettas
hehe... But so many
of you have asked me to add this option so here it is :).
also send me a full length ALTERNATE
FAITH album for $10 This
is a full length album featuring 12 of my songs. If
you enjoy modern rock/world music, and would like to order my
CD and support this independent artist :), you can by selecting this box. The CD will be inserted
in a paper sleeve and placed at the top of your box and
shipped at no extra charge this way, along with your fish
hehehehe. Bettas love to spawn to my music. Really? No,
not really LOL, but I had you going there, for a monent
for your support!
