Help Me Pick

For background on why I'm looking for another female see the Memorials forum.

I refuse to go to the pet store to look for another female. I want to know the one I'm getting is healthy for two reasons
1. I don't need the heartache of getting another fish and having it die
2. I don't want to risk potential cross contaminiation

I also thought about just sticking with two girls but I like the idea of 3 girls (one is coming on monday) so I want another.

So I've found a bunch of females on aquabid that I'd like to get. I also have a second free option. I'm getting a female from a breeder on a separate forum sent to me on Monday. If I make my decision by tomorrow I could probably ask her to send me another if she still has some left. I trust her to pick me a gorgeous girl to go with my other one.

So here are the females I liked. Of course my first choice would be the Martinismommy one but she has a bid in on her already and for a non-breeding pet I don't want to get into a bidding war.

These are arranged by the ones I like best. I'm too lazy to pull the pics so I'm just posting the links.

#2 http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1299367811

#3 http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...sdt&1299293406 (not sure if I like the color though)

#4 http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1299313832


So thoughts? Any favorites?

Here's the vid with the girl I'm getting on Monday in it. As you can see lots of pretty colors. Lets call this option #5.

the girl I'm getting is the blue/orange at 0:40

They're all really pretty! My first choice, like yours, would be Karen's female. But if you don't want to get into a bidding war my second choice would be girl #2. I love her colors and fins.I know you want a pet but heck, she might be a good female to breed if you get back into it again. But yeah girl #2 would be my pick if you don't want a bidding war. :)

I think it'd be cool to see #4's marbling! The other girls have set colors... Where as 4 is mysterious lol. Of course I'd prob pick the mystery box over the car any day :P

My other mystery box option would be #5 (that spawn has marble in it too). There was a sister of #4 that I liked better but she sold.

No one seems to like the DT girl so far. I think she's cute but her colors... I dunno they're sort of "meh" to me. But I guess she could be prettier in person.

I also favor Karen's fish... but I had seen #2 before and really liked her.
As Beat2020 said, you won't have to hunt for a female if you decide to breed again!
