Red face OMG DH is gonna kill me!!!

I came home with another girl today! I have been looking at this little girl for 2 months at wal-mart. When I went today, she was floating at the top of the cup!!! I figured for sure she was dead. The only reason I had never gotten her was because I really don't have room for her. Today when I seen her floating there, I picked up the cup.....She started swimming!!! Not very well but swimming none the less. I finally found someone to help me and I ask if I could get a discount since she was in bad shape. They told me that Wal-Mart policy on fish is ......if something is wrong with the fish they aren't allowed to sell it, they send it back to corperate? Ahhh... yeah... right! They wait till the fish dies then send in the number on it to get credit for it. I will NEVER believe they send back fish to corperate!! I am not that stupid!!! Anyway, right now she is in my 2 gallon bowl with a heater. She seems to be swimming ok. Right behind her gills looks a little red. She is very....different than any other I have seen. Will post picture sometime tomorrow. I hope she makes it but.....I don't know what I am going to do with her! Like I said....DH is gonna kill me when he gets home!!! I am thinking of naming her Dee, because she sure has been Dee-termined to live!
