Resisting the urge to buy another betta

I am going to Petco later to buy things for my plants. How can I resist the urge to buy a betta?

Open your eyes
Now is the time
To rise up

Not looking at their cute little faces when you walk by? Maybe even spoiling the ones you already have and buying them some new decorations or a treat! :)

It's hard. I have been by both Petsmart and Walmart today, and found a fish in each store that I can't stop daydreaming about.

I look at them, but then I realize that they'll go to someone else who will love them much better.
Instead I buy stuff for the boys I already have :)

It makes me feel better ^^

Baby Buddha(M VT) ~ Oddball (M-DeTxHM)~ Little Chai ~ Lucky(F oto)

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

I've pretty much accepted the fact that every time I go to a pet store I'm leaving with a betta. Which is why I'm now cycling another 20 gal divided tank... And which is why I'm trying to buy most of what I need online.

I agree with don't even look at them. It takes great will power to get in and out without doing that. I keep telling myself I'm at my limit I'm at my limit I'm at my limit.... Or If I walk out of here without a fish I will get myself a Starbucks (insert treat of choice). It has worked so far!

My aunt had a smooth coated ibizan hound. They are a funny breed
