I don't think BB would ever jeopardize their fish by sending an unhealthy one. (I don't think anyone on aquabid would bother as it can just end up as more of a hassle since a DOA is more likely).
Fin damage isn't a big deal really, especially with a breeder since their water is always well maintained.
I've seen some adorable females on aquabid from BB. And unless you are showing/breeding, aquabid fish are really great. They don't have to be perfect if they are just pets. Breeders have to do something with the fish not good enough for breeding, and many of them still have great colors, which is what draws us pet people to them.
