Has any one ever done this?!

So I was on Aquabid today....browsing, minding my own business, looking at female bettas to stock my sorority with..when i accidentally bided on one.............HOW do you accidentally bid on a fish on aquabid you ask? I DON'T EVEN KNOW. I honestly don't know what happened! I was looking at fish and the next thing I know is it's thanking me for placing a bid!
I tried getting the bid cancelled but theres 17 minutes before the bid closes. (when I emailed a bunch of people trying to get it cancelled I had an hour before it closed)
So I guess I'm getting a female for my sorority...that's good I guess.
She isn't ugly or anything, I just would rather buy a different female for the same price.

heres a link:http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...sct&1379731778

Thanks for reading my rant.

-Truong.

Sorry to hear that :( maybe email the seller and ask for a different female. Try to explain maybe, or even email AB itself

I think it's a pretty fish. Maybe she'll have a wonderful personality & you'll find out it was meant to be? Lol. I think your rant was quite funny though.

"HOW do you accidentally bid on a fish on aquabid you ask? I DON'T EVEN KNOW."

^^^that killed me!

Lol... You are aware how much shipping and transshipping is, right?

You could contact the seller and ask for a different female for the price.

She is really pretty, but another one of the sellers females really caught my eye.
I think I found a way out of it though, I still have to authorize the purchase on paypal....I wonder what will happen if I don't?
I'm glad I gave you a good laugh

It's hella expensive isn't it...

I did ask for a female that really caught my eye..we'll see what happens.
At any rate, I'm excited to get females for my sorority. I'm actually meeting CJ
tomorrow to swap so fish :)

Of course I'll have a few of your girls in my tank too.

I have a surprise up my sleeve for the sorority tank.

You can always not buy the fish, but you'll likely get a negative review with will make people a tad wary with dealing with you later. 1 negative review VS all that money for a female you don't want, your choice.

good luck with the sorority.
