I think you have to create an account with them so you can bid.

I know in australia we have an importer who go through the fish is first sent to them for quarintine and then you organise postage from that person to your location i dont know what its like in america but you must sort all of this out before you buy the fish because the fines or not going through quarintine and doing it illegally would land you in A LOT of trouble it would technically be smuggling maybe if you go to a hardcore breeder site you could ask them as they would know but im sure someone will come round and explain it all ... guess that was a bit of a ramble going nowhere :S

So do you have to get in touch with the transhipper before you make the payment for the fish? Seems like a lot of extra shipping costs but a few of those fish look worth it...
