Every time I go to Petco I want another betta!

So I went to Petco today and looked in the betta section. They had a beautiful violet king betta with a pink HM tail there and I wanted him so much! He swam to the front of his cup and watched me for the entire 5 minutes I stood in front of his cup. His face was light gray and it was so cute! I asked my mom if I could get him, but she said we don't have room. It seems like almost every time I go in there they have a stunning betta that I want. Too bad my dad doesn't like fish *sigh*

I also find myself always looking at Betta's every-time I go into Petsmart.

Ya I would have tons by now if my dad wasn't so strict. If each betta had 5 gallons, I could keep 7 bettas and one more in 2.5 gallons, but my dad only lets me have 2 tanks. The bettas are all so pretty though and I want to save them all.

Yep, I know the feeling. I was distraught that the boy I loved wasn't at Petco...I almost left with a different betta. I just didn't have the absolute connection.

I know what that's like. I really felt connected to that king more than the other bettas. I just kept coming back to look at him. I'm already regretting not getting him.
