I am also guilty of it - My birthday is coming up soon so I spoiled myself by purchasing two males for the first time off of AB. (Originally it was just one male, buuuut the betta bug got me.)
I won't be breeding them, they will just be expensive and very spoiled pets. Then again, when I look at the prices for some of the salt water reef fish in pet stores, paying $30-$50 for a betta doesn't seem so bad after all.
EDIT: I have a quick question for you more experienced Aquabidders and I figured I don't need to make a whole new thread...
Regarding my two fish, I've heard from the seller, who has told me she will ship to the transshipper closest to me. However, I've sent two emails to my transshipper over the past five days inquiring about ship dates and total cost, and I have yet to hear back from them. I'm not sure what to do in this situation and I was hoping to get a bit of advice.
