I am with you, feng, ...I think I hate Aquabid, too! Doesn't stop me from visiting every couple of days, though.
I have 8 bettas, mostly female, all HM coming to me next week via AB and Thailand, stopping off first in CO w/Linda Olson...I figure the more I get in one trip, the more distributed the cost...as opposed to saying "this boy came from Thailand and his total cost was $55!"
It's kind of like when a store sells something and the price ends in $.99! We can tell ourselves and everyone else that we bought it for less than $20 but the cost was $19.99...our brain KNOWS we spent $20 (or at least knows it was only a penny under $20), we just feel better because we're able to pretend more realistically...
Kind of a big tangent...the argument was floating inside my head. :)
