Well, I, for one, used as I am to purchasing B. splendens from private
breeders via mail, am appalled at the quote of $45 for shipping, *plus*
a $10 handling fee.  I have never paid over $20 for shipping and shipping
materials and *that* is for sometimes up to 10 adult fish, each packed
in its own double bag (sometimes females 2 to a bag), and at Express 
Mail prices!  Next week I am expecting four Bettas shipped from Hawaii
to New York state via Express Mail and paid only $15 shipping/packing!

That said ... has anyone ever ordered plants from Westerleigh Aquatics?
I think they are in NY or NJ?
