Buying A Betta Off Kijiji

I was browsing Kijiji- and came across a betta for sale. My computer won't let me post a pic of him, but he's pink/red and has a little blue.
I am considering buying him, mostly because he lives in a 1 gallon bowl, he has 1 plastic plant in there, nowhere to hide, and his water is gross and GREEN. I can definitely provide a better home for him!
...Well... should I buy him?
Has anyone else bought a betta off of Kijiji or any other site like that?

How much are they asking. Sometimes you can convince people to give you the fish for free. It sounds like he needs rescuing.

She's asking $10. But since she doesn't want him anymore, I asked her if $5 would be alright. Hopefully she replies soon.

Thank you! The owner of the betta posted it on May 9th, so hopefully her betta has either gone to a good home... or is still there, where he'll come home with me!

Well, she's responded! Yay!
I believe she's actually a friend of my friend.
Now I just need to know when to pick him up :D
