well here's what I said:
Yeah, I have a question about this. I just noticed that your picture looks like you stole it from someone else cause of the cropping of the photo. Is that the real fish that is on the photo? If it isn't, can you send me an actual photo or a recent photo of the actual fish that you're selling? how old is he? and did you use him to breed already and reselling it?
then he replied:
that is the actual fish in the photo , I did not steal anything, i bought him with the intent of spawning and never got around to it and yes i am now reselling him. as far as age I would imagine him to be about 6 months now. Please let meknow what your intentions are.
and I said...
I like the guy, but can you send a recent photo of him? I want to see how's his condition now cause I'd assume that photo is from the breeeder that you got him from and it's about 3 months old when you just purchased him. Also, aren't you charging too much for a betta that you're reselling after all these months which I'm really not that sure if you breed him or not?
finally he said...
PAUL YOU ARE OBVIOSULY A NEWBIE,
HERE IS THE DEAL, YOU DO NOT BID ON A FISH AND THEN ASK QUESTIONS IF YOU HAD ANY DOUBTS OR QUESTIONS YOU ASK BEFORE BIDDING ON HIM AND I AM NOT CHARGING TOO MUCH THATS ENTIRELY UP TO ME. THE PHOTO IS HIM I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE A PICTURE I HAVE SOLD OTHERS SAME CIRCUMSTANCES RECENTLY.
