Resisting bettas

At Petco today I saw a beautiful HM EE with pink and purple and I wanted it soo bad.

Why does resisting have to be so hard? I literally wanted to throw a tantrum in the store over it. Hubby said after we got home we could go back and get it and I was like <___< I WANT TO THROW SOMETHING AT YOU WHY YOU SAY NO AT STORE!?!?!?

GAH. Anyway. How do you guys deal with walking away from beautiful feeshes?

I don't deal and that is the problem :( I mean, I can deal with colors/fin types that I don't like but if something really catches my eye (like this beautiful double tail at my LFS today....I told her to hold him for me....I'm bad....) I don't take well to walking away unless I literally have no money for them which is kind of the situation I'm in now...yup Sooo I'm no help XD

xD See that's what happened with my CT and while I love both my bettas... this EE was like O__O He even flared at me when I walked by. Twice. If it weren't for my hubby (and money) I'd have so many fish. When we got him he was like "We can just put him in the 1.5g!" I had to explain I don't want to do that many water changes and such.

Grahhhh so hard. Fish are addicting.

^^ That's what I do. I have no money, and can't afford to buy a fish.

...Unless they go on sale at Petsmart, like they are right now. Girls are $0.99. ;-; The temptationnnnn

Haha sometimes I go and plead my case to my mum as she likes bettas and so she can be sympathetic to my plight. Once I get a job again I am going to be in debt to her forever.

Luckily for me, I like rarer species of wild betta so I don't have to go to every shop and want to take all the bettas home. However, I find it extremely hard to resist young cambodian CT/VT females. Especially if they are getting beaten up in the fish store display tank.
