Curse my big heart

I rescued another betta who I had no room for. I curse my heart which has a soft spot for injured animals.

There was a beautiful betta when I was at petsmart last time that had, what looked like to me to be ick. I tried to figure out some way to buy a tank for him, but with my other guy needing a filter, and no tanks cheap enough I had to leave him there. :c
I know that feel dude.

I had to put one betta in a breeders trap and another one in the 29 gallon. I included pictures to show you why I couldn't leave him

Isn't it a little risky to not be able to quarantine them tough? Especially because they are rescues I imagine they have the higher chance of introducing diseases into the tank =/ Hope he gets better soon!!
