Wink Keep me away from the betta section.

I almost ALMOST bought betta number 5 tonight at the wal mart I never go to! Most of the place is GROSS but they seem to take care of their fish section.

Anyway they had this gorgeous ORANGE AND GREEN VT that I wanted to take home so bad... And I would have too if I had an open place to put a tank. Darn. And yeah, I said orange and green. NEVER seen that before. ever. And their CTs didn't look sickly like they normally do. So many colors. *swoon*...

I seriously think I should be kept away from the bettas since I KNOW at some point or another I'll be bringing another home with me. tie me up, keep me distracted with another department, just don't let me buy another betta! It takes a lot to say that. lol..

Anyone else like this in the fish department?

Oh yeah!haha I always tell myself when I'm driving to at pet store that I can absolutely NOT look at the bettas, but I find myself walking there to look at them. *rolls eyes* Than if I see one and I don't get it, he/she is embedded in my mind, it's soo annoying.lol

Yep... I've done that quite a bit!!

But good for you being able to know your limit and keeping it that way. :)

Lol, I know how you all feel!
Whenever my dad goes to the petstore, I ask him if I can come, and he always says no, because I'd end up getting another betta. XD

Every time I go to petsmart, I find myself making a beeline for the betta section, then spending too much time shuffling through the little cups, and reaching in the far back to look at some of the other bettas no one really sees. I'd definatly get more, but I only have one tank :(
