Aquabid finally caught me...

I just "bought" one of hopdiggity's hmpk (paying for him tomorrow). I can't believe it. I saw him a few days ago, and he looked perfect to me: the look in his eye, his mouth, etc. After debating for a few days on whether or not I should get him (not enough room, parents might complain, not enough time, etc) and losing sleep over him last night wondering if I would regret not buying him (his auction ended last night at 2am), I decided to buy him when I saw him re-listed.

Here he is:

He's a Thailand import from Greatbettas which is a win since I didn't want to go through all that transhipper hassles. Is he a halfmoon? Not that I really care, it's just nice to know. He'll be my first betta that isn't a double tail, and also my first plakat!

Oh geez, I'm so nervous. This is so new to me. I hope this goes down without a hitch!

I was thinking about bidding on this guy too!! Glad you got him instead. I have very little extra room and no female to pair him with yet anyways.

He is definitely a looker!

Haha I think aquabid will get everyone eventually!! He's lovely!! The edges of his tail are a bit too rounded to be considered a true halfmoon plakat, but he's gorgeous either way and will make a great and beautiful pet!
