Oooooo....

Lookie lookie

BUT, she's selling the fish for 30 bucks!?! Seriously!? I can get one for 12 bucks at petco.

I think I'm gonna e-mail. But no way I'm paying 30 bucks for him. Maybe like 7. LOL

He's pretty! Ask her if she will negotiate the price. I wonder why he is in blue water

Yeah looks like the poor guy isn't in the best conditions right now. I e-mailed her saying this:

Hello, I'm interested in your betta fish.

Where are you located? I'm near ______ PA.

I'm experienced with bettas, and have quite a few myself. I would love to give him a good home, but I wouldn't need the tank/bowl included. Would you be willing to sell him without his bowl and accessories? Or would you just give him to me considering I would give him a loving home?

Thanks!!

Very pretty. I would definitely ask if she'll negotiate the price. She obviously has no clue how to take care of him.

Lol. Just give him to you on the grounds that you'd give him a loving home. Would be amazing if she took that bait.

A very nice fish, but her care instructions seem a bit flawed. Being a king betta, shouldn't it be fed at least two times per day, not per week? Also, I wonder what kinds of larger fish she had in mind when suggesting he be placed with them.

But that's ok DQ because you're on vaca, this woman was talking about a regular feeding schedule. Plus, King's are a lot bigger and need a little bit more food than the regular sized betta. :)

They probably need what, 4-5 pellets twice a day?
