I made my first purchases from AquaBid.com

After only buying fish at my LFS I finally broke down and purchased some through AquaBid.com. My LFS just wasn't getting in what I wanted. I purchased some apistos (baenschi, agassizi and panduro) as well as some juvenile blood red jewel cichlids. I've been very happy with my purchases and intend to get some more soon. The sellers I dealt with were apistodave and rarefishatlax.

I wasn't too thrilled with the picture of the Apisto baenschi so I am going to post another picture. The first picture really didn't do justice to the coloration it displays.

I've been very happy with the purchases I've made through there so far. It has allowed me to get fish that I never see at my LFS.

does not look like you are that far over the border you could make a friend on the U.S. Side , i suppose you can not transport the fish back to the canada side though

I have had a great time buying and selling on AquaBid. They have a feedback system like eBay, and a feedback forum as well, where you can do a search for the seller or buyer you're dealing with.

I've never had a bad experience or dead animal/plant buying there. Both of the sellers you dealt with, gheitman, have stellar reputations for nice fish and good shipping practices.

They're lovely-congratulations!
