Is Aquabid.com safe to use?

this is the url for the seller i am considering buying from:
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...&1&vfb&Blimp33

this is the url to the fish i would like to buy:
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1362146613

im not sure how to find out their track record and DOAs, etc. Does anyone have any advice for me? or warnings? is anyone familiar with this seller? they have a 100% positive rating which makes me nervous, but have about a hundred fish for sale on the site.
thanks guys!

It appears that the seller has gotten great feedback so I'd say he's a good seller. I'm not familiar with this person but then again I've never bought from Aquabid. Several people here have, though.

if a seller has as much positive feedback as that guy, and no negative whatsoever, you can be pretty damn confident they're a good seller/breeder. just make sure you get with a good transhipper, i keep hearing great things about linda olson.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Aquabid is great as long as you work with reputable sellers! Blimp is a great seller! I'd say go for it, that female is just lovely!

So what am i looking at paying? Im not sure what shipping and such would cost or do i discuss that with the transhipper? my husband has agreed to let me have her, but i dont want to surprise him with the price.
i am assuming the $20 she costs does not include anything. also i saw there is a heating pad you can buy to ship them with; are there other extras like this i should consider?
