Need help deciding on a fish

Hey guys,
There are so many beautiful bettas out there.... and I can only have 2... Im dividing my 5.5g to fit another betta in my life... I saw this male halfmoon that had a pink body w a red tail and some irridescent colors on it as well... I have been having some commitment issues bec i know their new shipment of bettas comes in on thurs... should i hold out and choose from all the new bettas or pick that one... im worried that if i wait someone will buy him... or worse... that by thurs he will be sick bec hes been sitting in that plastic cup all week...
what do u think?
and what are your fav colors/ tail types... im actually beginning to have a soft spot for veil tails but can never find them in interesting colors

Personally, I would suggest that you buy the little guy you have been looking at (before he gets sick or ends up in some Teddy Tank somewhere ). I feel like the newer bettas have a better chance of getting homes than do the old ones; they start to look a little rough after hanging out in a half cup of water for a while.

But, then again, I'm that person that always chooses the most pathetically decrepit creatures to take home and nurse back to health :)

Good luck and let us know who you pick...

I agree, new shipments have better chances, leftovers are just shoved behind the newbies.

So awesome you're gonna get that guy! Post pics ;D
