Buying on Aquabid!

So, my birthday is coming up and my boyfriend said he would get me an Aquabid fish. Yay!! I'm super stoked but I can't pick on to save my life, although I have my eye on some marbled halfmoon plakats. Which is funny, because I don't usually like them...I'm a frilly HM, OHM kinda gal. Does anyone have any advice for buying on aquabid? I feel so hesitant yet so excited. Is there a special way to acclimate bettas that come from another country, or is is basically the same as how you would acclimate one from the LFS.

I'd love to hear everyone's experiences, good and bad, about buying on aquabid (mainly to ease my mind about buying!). If you have any advice or tips that would be great too!

Here is one of the many I have my eye on:

Thanks Jupiter!

I thought he was just beautiful too...perhaps I'm starting to get a soft spot for those plakats! I couldn't ignore this one though:http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1351620602 . He's also on my list of favourites.

I could see this Aquabid thing turning into a BAAAAD habit hahah.

omg...that one is stunning too. Luckily for me I'm not allowed to buy online, otherwise I'd probably own two times the bettas I have now. :P

I love the plakat! HM is nice too. I have never bought off aquabid so I can't give any advice.

The only reason I'll be getting one or two of these guys is because they'll be a present. Otherwise, I get told it's ridiculous to buy online. I normally wouldn't but it's hard to say no!! I think I might have to go with that plakat. I have my eye on a halfmoon from the same breeder.

Sorry for the double post...didn't want to start a new thread.

BUT....Bwhahah! I bid on three of them. Boyfriend is buying one for me and I'm splurging for the other two. I figured with the cost of importing one being so steep, might as well do three (great logic there, right? *rolls eyes*). The shipping is the same for 1-6 bettas according to my transhipper.

I'm being bad. *sheepish smile*
