If you use Aquabid make sure you take into account the feedback. I've been burned several times when ordering fish and I've often received either the wrong fish, one that was not as described, or one that was diseased on arrival.

Some of the "mass" sellers on there do not take necessary pre-sale fish care, meaning in some cases you'll get fish that are extremely deprived.

Although not always the case, just be careful since you have no way of verifying anything until it reaches your door step!

75G FW Community planted
65G FW Mbuna tank

Only time there was any "confusion" in transactions on Aquabid was some red jewel cichlids that arrived to me about a little over an inch and a half long..supposed they were 4 months old..surprised they laid eggs week later. Seller admitted they were older than they looked, they were stunted.Not stunted anymore..have numerous tanks of pretty reds now. Thinking seller got panicky with number of fish he had. Oh yeh..they were shipped 3, or 4 together in bags and tails and finnage chewed badly.
