Ivan,

I gave you this BEAST 3 months agob FREE OF CHARGE, and I bought this beauty from Budahox for $20.00. So why are you selling this for a profit. If you don't want this, just give this away !!!!!!

true you gave it to him... but once you give something away... its now the owners to do what he wants with it... so if he wants to sell... thats his own buisness... do not mean to get in between anything here.... just giving my two cents

I am with Peter on this one as his thoughts refer to a growth of a good community. If I get something free, I make sure to always give more than what I got back to this community and lots of people here do the same.

If people start getting things for free and then turn it over for profit, it defeats the whole purpose.
(Just my opinion)

First ,thank you very much for your fish give to me for free of charge.
But,... sorry, but have to say that because your fish already killed one of my fuji apple disco.I bought that one is $50 .And now ,the other chocolate Cichlid was very damaged.
For my opinion , when you gave to me ,it's belong my fish.Even i sell for $15 bucks,i even cannot buy my disco .
Hey, Ivan

You chose not to listen to my advice when I gave you this fish which I had indicated a few times that this BEAST is even more aggressive than a flowerhorn. So you took your chance to mix this FREE beast with your expensive fish and incur a hugh LOSS , totally ignoring my genuine & friendly advice. Of course, once I gave it out, I have no control over it.

I think many members here have incurred fish losses due to their own carelessness or faults, including myself. So should they compensate their losses by taking FREE ITEMS FROM MEMBERS and resell them to minimize their losses !!!!!!!!!!!

I am really scratching my head !!!!!!!

I try to keep my mouth shut during debates! But this is ridiculous (Speaking for myself only)! I understand that it's completely your fish/property, but to have the heart to take something free from someone and resell it for profit is completely ridiculous! And you were completely warned in the beginning, and yes, I understand, you are only trying to make up your loss.. but that's ANOTHER story, to profit from another is ANOTHER story!
Good luck on your sale though... :rolleyes::eek::rolleyes::eek: (Should i be shocked or roll my eyes?)

Man, becarefull reading,i want to trade mostly and sell in case if no people want to trade. should we sign agreement or contract for the free fish cannot trade or resell? Sound look like you rent a house for people and asking them that do they use a water or paper in the washroom. Is it right?

Please don't try to sound or act professional in a situation when you're only jeopardizing your very own reputation.
And please oh please don't say I can't read carefully when you can't type properly! How could you continue being sarcastic in a situation when YOU, yourself is being judged?
I'm out of this conversation, say what you want, do what you want, as I've already given my 2 cents.. as BCA members now see what's happening and they can be their own judge! I am only pointing my personal view and voicing my very own personal words!

i always look at gift fish like i do that fable about how if you save someones life they r your responsibility for the rest of your life......................so i am always careful what i take.


but ya, there is kind of that unwritten understanding that you don't profit from gift fish. but on the other hand........if people pay for things they tend to take better care of it.....so i sit on fence on this one.........but hey, its a free bump..............lol

u guys make me laughing, FS / FT finially become a fighting topic , i am not stay on any side! my opinion is " if u decide give a " FREE" to someone, that's belong to the new owner , he can do whatever he want ...who still care about it, you better dont type"FREE" because i may come take it one day! i dont feel any wrong for it! come down MAN !

The community gave you something for free and now you're trying to sell it, that's the bottom line. Just because you didn't heed peter's warning of the temperament fish, does not mean you can use its temperament as a scapegoat to justify selling it.
