Haha, that's awesome about the AB fishy! My mother won't let me get anything for fish off of the internet *eye roll*

I have previously found "that one girl"... It was little Themis, and in missing her I went and filled the void with my Boreas, which I feel terrible about, but at least it helped a little. I'm hoping for a CT or another HMPK or just a PK of sorts. I LOVE PKs :P

I don't know why I even look, since I haven't the first clue about ordering a fish and my mother would never allow it. Plus the price. But here are my top AB picks :)

Oooh, I like this girl most of all: http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1377060510 she's gorgeous!

If I had enough funds I'd help you out but I don't

I like her too: http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1377035901 I've been looking for an EE or at least a salamander like that for my sorority but alas, I don't think I'll ever find one and I don't think I want to be an EE in my sorority since they're all fin nippers :-/ so that would suck to have their beautiful ears ruined! I know they'll grow back but pecs grow slower than most other fins so yeah... :-/

And yes! Love PK's! All my PK's are full sized now! I love how big they are compared to my full sized VT's lol, it's like 1.3-4 inches vs. 1.9-2 inches! Crazy size difference!

Yeah, she really spoke to me!

Would you mind explaining to me the process of purchasing one of these fish? I mean, sign up, hit "Buy Now" and enter a credit card number? How is it shipped and all that? :P

I have my HMPK EE girl Artemis and she's pretty aggressive herself, so she fends for herself quite well! My Artemis is TINY! Jumper is almost bigger than her!

Oh yeah, size has nothing to do with it haha.

and the process, yep you just sign up. So choose your user name and then they send you an email within 24 hours or so, letting you log on. They have to verify things and all so it takes a little while. They give you your password but you can change it afterwards if you like

Then you find a fish you like and you can either bid, you have to enter a Maximum Bid Price, which if you know that the fish most likely isn't going to go much higher in bids, then just bid max at that price. So say the Bid is starting at 15 but the BIN price is 25, you bid for 15 and for the Max Price you put in 15 if you know you're getting the fish. Look at how many page views the fish has had to help determine. Otherwise, if no one has bid yet but the page has lots of views, it might be worth it to do the BIN price.

So then, after you bid or BIN you wait it out and the seller will contact you usually within a day. They will usually tell you your bill and ask you to pay as soon as you can, you can pay by paypal usually just fine. Now if the fish is coming from Thailand, generally you'll have to pay a 2-5 dollar shipping fee; that's to get the fish out of the country and to Hung, your transshipper. Then Hung charges the regular shipping fee to your house which is usually around 30-40? I don't know the exact number since I'm not Canadian. But then I do know he charges and extra 10 dollars PER fish because he can do that, which sucks. Our transshippers don't do that in USA so we're lucky on that part but since Hung is your only transshipper, he does what he wants.

So you pay and voila in a day or two, you have your fish! hooray!

Oh I do note, not all sellers will ask you for that initial 2-5 dollars shipping price, I had two not ask me for it and one did so that was just nice of them ^_^

Well thank you, that explains A LOT for me! And maybe my mum would let me, if Hung wasn't such a butthead and wouldn't charge me more than the fish to ship it an hour from my house -_- BUT ANYWAYS. I will now start looking more seriously at the girls, then ask my mum again when I found "The one", because even though all of those girls were amazingly gorgeous, none really "spoke" to me, aha.

Oooh, if you live close enough you can pick up the fish and then it's only just the 10 dollar fee, the 5-ish dollar fee from Thailand and the fishes Bid price! Of course, you need a ride and all but yeah.

Well depending on where Hung lives, I could totally go, because I have family all over the province and we could just visit them :P

I went down to the 30g today and noticed it looked gross. The filter had stopped working. Pissed off, I yelled at it and took it down and SCRUBBED it for an hour. It was clogged up with a friggin' plant leaf and had stopped working -_- Anyways, now I don't need to clean it out on Monday! It's working again and the Barbs look very angry at that, since now they filtration is back on :P

Actually you don't go to Hung, you go to one of his friends, you can email him and ask him about it! Catw0man and I aren't even sure Hung actually exists XD lol but it's worth an email anyway!

Sucks about the filter, I try to rinse the medias out every week or so and then if I feel the need I'll clean the whole filter every 3-4 weeks generally. Although I haven't taken the big one off the sorority yet since I've had it....I should probably do that today...ugg, I don't want to know what's in it lol

I- I've done it. I've found her.

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1377154203

If only my mother would let me! She's out for the day, and we're heading out to local pet shops for a new female, but none will compare to this girl. Eeeeeerg, I really want to get her!
