I just got a new betta from ebay. A lovely chocolate DTHM. Well he arrived looking like his fins went through a blender. Super stressed, worse than any domestic betta I've ever received in the mail, and thin for his size. Grr. I emailed the seller to see if he'll do anything about it. Next step if he won't is probably going to be finally making use of that ebay buyer protection program. Poor fish. You can tell he's a real beauty in there somewhere.
