I Won!!!

OMG.. I could jump out of my skin right now. I won my first aquabid auction someone tried to out bid me so I went $6.00 over what I set as my maxiumum but I think he's worth it...

This is my newest breeding male..


He's got a little fin damage from showing but I'm okay with that. If I get the female I'm also bidding on they will produce Mustard Gasses (blue/yellow bi-colors), Blues, Multis, and MELANO!! (aka Black).

His breeder is Karen MacAuely (aka MartinisMommy). I had an email conversation with her yesterday evening. She's really helpful and great to work with if anyone is looking to get nice HM Multicolors or marbles. http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/auction.cgi?fwbettashm&1283369852

He is my early birthday present to myself and I think he's worth the extra cash it took to get him.

Fingers crossed on the female.. her auction ends in 2 hours

His color is lovely, you might want to pair him with a female with more moderate finnage and a nicer dorsal to even out the finnage in the fry. Did you bid on the sibling female for him? I saw she had one up for auction as well. If you don't end up getting her, it would be interesting to breed him with a female with blue masking on the face since masking is a pretty big trend right now. It would definitely be a goal of mine if I were working with him.

$28.76. My limit was going to be $22.

I have a bid in on the female but the same person who tried to out bid me on him is trying to out bid me on her (which I think is kind of rude considering they obviously go together). I can't go much higher for the female.

I did bid on the female for him. If I don't get her I'm going to have to see if MM has another suitable girl or else I'm going to have to try to find another female. I really want a melano geno girl.
