Ughhh, fell in love with a betta but had no room :C

I went to 3 different LFS' yesterday, and each one had ill, fin rotten bettas. I fell in love with a beautiful white pearly CT who was depressed and kept in the tiniest cup, but most of all, the teeniest tiniest little orange girl - i've never seen one so tiny! she was the cutest little thing in the world, but she was so unhappy and depressed, and the tips of her fins were black and rotting away. i was so so close to buying her, but i didn't have a spare heater and it is the middle of winter. this fish shop in particular had a few bettas, all were sick and depressed, yet the rest of their shop was really well kept.

i just needed to get that out, i'm so sad i couldnt get her! arghhhh!

This happens to me all the time. With me it's that I know I don't have time to care for another pet.

BettaBuddi1221, it was yesterday~ C: And I don't think I'd be able to use a heating lamp - I have been planning to get a little girl for a while and a heater was the next thing for me to buy, but this little one caught me off guard!
