Good luck btw I hope you got your fish!!
The thought crossed my mind that someone else would want it too. I hope it worked out for you

It did, karma handled it for me.

I firmly believe in Karma and I have seen it work more times than I can count. That's why I really take into consideration how I treat others.

Like last weekend I really wanted this fish...But someone already had a bid on her...I refuse to bid on a fish that has one user bidding on it. If the fish has multiple users bidding, then I may step in and bid but that's the only time I will bid against people. I know that it's not common practice but that's just how I do it.


Instead of bidding against this the other user, I found this female and chose the buy it now feature to ensure I got her.


I try to have faith in a higher power that I will receive exactly what I am supposed too and I don't allow my wants or needs to trample over the needs or wants of others.

This is just how I do it and it's not a recommendation to others

Karma doesn't care about the legitimacy of an aquabid auction.

Karma only cares that you treat others with respect. "Do unto others as you would have done unto you." That's the golden rule and when people break it they run into a thing called Karma. I believe that what you do wrong to others it comes back on you three times fold.
Others may say it's a coincidence but I don't believe in coincidence.

I did get her :) paying after work.

I considered someone might snipe her, but I was okay with that. When I find a "must have" fish instead of a want fish, I'm not telling anyone :p
