Question YES or NO Should I rescue?

Ok, so I've kinda been wanting to do this, one fish at a time. I want to rescue. Of course I may end up keeping one or two but still. My local Petsmart is willing to give me their sick fish for free, so I could nurse them back to health, then adopt them out. Like I said, only one fish at a time. But I was thinking of the adoption fee's of-

MALE VT AND CT- $3.50
FEMALE VT AND CT- $1.50
MALE DT AND HM- $5.00
FEMALE DT AND HM-$2.50
MALE PLAKAT AND PLAKAT HALFMOON-$7.00
FEMALE PLAKAT AND PLAKAT HALFMOON-$4.50

If you can risk the money, then go for it. Just be careful as sometimes the rescues you try to nurse back don't always live.. So I think you should try to get the minor sicknesses first so you can work your way up to major ones to get some experience. I also think the prices should matter on the color.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

EXAMPLE: VT MALE - $3.50

I know, but I think the price should vary on the color.
Like you get a solid red HM and a blue marble VT. If I were the buyer, I would buy the VT. Not because of the price but because of the pattern. And you list the VT as $3.50 and the HM as $5. Get my point?

Lol I'm sorry! I didn't know ... But I wasn't sure exactly what you mean, but yeah I agree. Change the price a bit for color.

Rescuing can be very rewarding. Also, check around your local classifieds (Craigslist, Kijiji) and maybe adopt out un-wanted betta's from people.
