Wanted to buy...

...an Albino Betta today.

I saw it at the pet store, and was running my budget through my head instantly to see if I could afford to buy him and another bowl or cube; something cheep to put him in.

I decided against it.

I'd rather spend the money on Bizz, and try to get him into a new Crib.

Couldn't spare the money anyway.

Are you sure it was albino?

Albino's are EXTREMELY rare and hardly ever found in pet stores, let alone at a breeder. There is however a coloration that looks like an albino, it is called a Cellophane. Basically the whole fish is see through. :)

That is an albino, note the red eyes. Albinos are always blind also.

Here is a cellophane:
