Like many folks here, I jumped at the chance to buy a fish with free priority shipping from Hopdiggity
on AquaBid. I read posts from several here that their fish were arriving in 2-3 days. Not sure what happened, but my guy took 5 days. I'm not blaming the seller. I had the option to pay the extra $20 for shipping but didn't.
Anyway, he arrived in cold water and had done a number on his tail. He doesn't even look like the same fish. I guess we've got some work to do to get him back to his AquaBid photo form.
I haven't named him yet. I'm a little depressed about the situation and feel like I shouldn't have bought him and put him through this ordeal.
Here's the AquaBid pic:
Here he is in his temporary quarters:
