fish i didn't buy today.....

I would have loved to have bought 6 albino cory cats and 4 brichardi.

But I didn't.

I could squeeze in some abino cories in my big tank....

I have no place for Brichardi's.....

[big sigh]

Moose...the fact that you exercised caution and judgement is commendable. This situation must be solved to prevent a future occurrence. Hmmm...what to do? Get another tank! You shouldn't deprive yourself of enjoying Birchardi's

Unless I start the bidding at $5, bid $6 myself, then shout "sold!" a nanosecond later...:P

You want me as auctioneer.....in the past two years I have managed to get bids of $14 for a small bag of Java moss, $15 for a bag of 6 snail shells, and $25 for a bag of assorted common livebearers. :P

Yes even the last auction some of the Java ferns / moss were going for 10+.... I made my limit 9 bucks and didn't take home nearly as many as I had hoped for

But it all worked out in the end with my free najas grass.
