$501.00??

I basically stalk ninebettas auctions because I love some of the bettas he produces (hurray for Duck!)... I even have some of his auctioned betta pictures in a folder on my desk top, can some one say scrap book time? Just kidding, I swear. >.>; Anyway... he recently put up this gorgeous betta that is unlike anything I've ever seen before. This particular betta currently has 12 bids, the highest is currently $501... for real?? O.O Wow...

If I was super-duper rich then I would buy it! Unfortunately I am not :P

If only… lol

EDIT new thought: What if that fish was DOA? Do you think they would get the money back?
