No More Bettas, I repeat, no more!

I've been dying to take home this beautiful veiltail boy home from work.

He's a peachy color with blue eyes! I've never ever seen a betta with blue eyes before.

But, I've limited myself to only taking home the fish that need it, ie rescues. Sigh. I wish I had room for a huge divided tank.
Someone buy him please so I don't have to see him go to a bad home

How many bettas would you have if you could?

Ferrets: Wesley, Percy, Owen. RIP Bandit
Fish: Pip, Logan, UnNamed DTHM
Bird: Kita- Sun Conure

I'd probably be a fish hoarder too (and ferret hoarder!), but I simply just don't have the room for more fishtanks. (Good thing my ferret cage can hold up to seven ferrets, especially since I have 4 now)

It's so hard working in a pet store watching your favorites get sold to people who don't know anything, and refuse to listen to good advice. I already passed up on a lovely navy blue veiltail with orange near his body and he got sold to some guy putting 2 bettas one of those .5gal divided monstrosities.

I have almost thirty right now but I would have sororities all over my house(I'm not a breeder). If I get one more betta my husbands head might blow up.

I think the problem for me is that I say that I'm satisfied with what I have, but then I see a betta that catches my eye and I say, "Oh, well, what's one more?" I think my limit right now is two, but I have no idea what I would do if I had the space/money for many bettas.

i've been wanting to do a room totally covered (all four walls, and possibly ceiling) in nothing but betta tanks. i'd have to have enough money to hire a water-change team, though, so that's never happening.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

I have over 90 right now but that's because I have 78 healthy 9 week olds growing. Thats a LOT water changes.
Still I don't stop buying... receiving another 2 adults tomorrow :)
I can't wait for my babies to be adults already... although that will mean 78 jars to clean everyday!
