My head says no....
But my heart says go get the little guy!!!
Ok so this morning I went to the petstore because I'm moving in a couple weeks and I needed new cups to put my bettas in for the move. Naturally I went to go look at them, they're cute I couldn't resist.
I saw this poor fish, I don't even know what color he's supposed to be but he's a dull grey with some blue and yellow hue to him with stress stripes, clamped fins, mild fin rot, and the dirty cup. What got to me though was when I first walked up he didn't really do anything,then he noticed I was paying attention to him and he went nuts, he really wanted to come home with me. I'm hoping somebody who knows what they're doing will take him home and nurse him back to health but I feel bad.
Like I said I'm moving in a couple weeks, I have a 20gallon divided but not set up, I'm going to wait until after the move to get it going and then get another fish for it. I thought about getting him a 1 gallon critter keeper, but I didn't realize how small they were and I don't want to keep him in that for a month while we wait to move.
Normally I'm pretty good about talking myself out another fish, I have two to fuss over but this one got to me. Any suggestions? Or should I just hope the right person comes along and gives him a chance?
