    No seriously mate, I SO agree: this betta is stunning and actually beautiful. I also keep coming back for a look. Makes me kinda tingle inside.

    Jordan, they are easy to import in the US. I'll PM you where I bid on them. I don't go for the high dollar I normally get them for 10.00 US or less. The shipping charges are about 20.00 US from Thailand and that was for five fish last time.
    I don't know about NZ?

I really need to get him a buddy.

    I wonder if a Beta would fight with him? I think the red ones and blue ones are really interesting.

    Goldfish are cold water fish and give off lots of ammonia. This would be harmful for the betta and the water temps are different. Also despite what I read, I have never had a betta get along with anything. Nor have I had female betas get along despite the 40 gallon tank I bought.
