I would much rather get a better betta. I've never bought on Aquabid before, (price wise) would it be better to use the buy it now button, or bid and hope no one else does?

depends on the fish.

Generally it'll end up being cheaper to bid, usually you'll get the fish for the original bid price. But occasioanlly, when it's a fish you really want, it may be better to BIN just to save your nerves.

I almost always bid, unless it's only a couple dollars difference, some sellers put the BIN at over double what the original bid and that just seems rediculous to me.

It is this fish:

The starting bid is 20$ and the BIN is $35. I would prefer to pay $20 but I'd really like her too.

That's an iffy one, she's got good form and great coloring from what I can tell, so there will be interest although I don't know about any bids


If it were me, I'd bid, but put $35 in the bid field. It'll show up as $20 but if anyone else bids you'll be okay because you're first bid was still higher. Unless someone gets ballsy and bids $36

Wow thank you so much! I'm going to wait until tomorrow for sure, but should I wait any longer to make the bid? I just feel like if I make a bid sooner that someone else will be more inclined to bid heh. Would it be a good idea to bid $36, just incase someone else bids $35?

It's all up to you.
If it were me, I'd bid straight away so that no one else can BIN it from under your nose.
You can bid $36, but I don't know how many people would go $15 over the original bid price for their first time anyway.
If anyone were to outbid, then you'd get an e-mail notification right away to re-bid, so if anything, just keep a close eye on your e-mails, or her auction during the last hour

In this case, I would contact the seller and ask if you could work something out prior to the end of the auction.....only because our Canadian transhipper's next ship date is May 19 and the auction won't end before that. I'm sure you'd want to get her as soon as you can. I'm restraining myself from buying her since you want her so much! lol.....

Siwat (3dbettas) listed another yellow girl today, but she's not as bright....very clean yellow though.

That's so nice of you Catwoman.. I'm not sure many people would do that :) I like the darker colour better, but the lighter one looks like it has a cleaner body line if that makes sense. I just want a good quality yellow girl
