New online/ebay seller?

Just wondering if anyone has ever used or purchased from this person:

http://cgi.ebay.com/LIVE-AQUARIUM-FI...QQcmdZViewItem

The items and listing descriptions seem to be very similar to that of the old Aquadise store.

Any info?

Hmmmm...sounds fishy, new eBay member springs up several days after aquadise goes missing.

I would say that no one has ever purchased from them because they've only been on for 6 days, and have a 0 feedback rating, as well as not giving a real name for their nursery.

In any case, the seller could use some english lessons. What's he doing selling C++ books from 1998 anyway?

Aquadise doesn't have the greatest reputation and "name changing" is nothing new for him---he did it here at PT before disappearing into the wilderness....


He did pretty good for a while as oceanaqua

Then ran into some conflict and became aquadise, then the whole question of who exactly is Green_Queen = hmmm-green_queen-aquadise.html.

Instinct tells me that the pix of the nursery are not his setup.

And this Asian site is where the java fern pic is hot-linked from:

I just get ?????? loaded on the Japan site as I don't have the character set on my machine.

Sláinte!

Yep, his pix are linked from all over. Makes you wonder when a person--after this many yrs--never shows any pictures of their own setup. Personally, I think he just grows this stuff naturally in one or more natural ponds and then sells it off. Would explain why people get dragonfly larvae from him.....

Well, I sent them a message asking if they were the former Aquadise and this is the response:

"Aquadise store? No, I have a small nursery that I tend and hope to bring sales to online customer."

- liennursery

I don't know. Same pictures, location, time frame, etc.
