Unhappy ;-; Argh

There's a really cute, ugly betta in my LFS. I call him Monsterface. He's been there for at least two weeks.

I really want to buy him, but I've pretty much been told no until my next chemistry test, since I have a history of biting off more than I can chew. I feel so horrible for him, he's been there so long and the store does take comparatively decent care of him, but I know they don't give their customers quite the right instructions... I have all the supplies I need for him at my other house... I just don't want him to go to a bad home, and I don't want to get in over my head again like I was when I was trying to raise the tadpoles and adult frogs and Freedy all at the same time.

I don't have enough space for another five gallon, so he'd have to be in something smaller.

What to dooooooo?? ;___;

Get a 2.5 gallon? As long as you can keep up with the water changes they usually are an ok size. :) He'll be going to a good home for sure if you buy him. You seem already attached so I would bring him home. XD Thats how my limit to 4 ended up at 5. >.> I saw this one betta at the store for 3 weeks and I had grown way to attached.

Haha. :) Yeah, I'm really attached... ;_; I just didn't expect him to still be there this week!! I do have a tank and everything for him. I'll just get in really huge trouble for it, is all... I do have to wait a while if I buy him. If I come in next week and he's still there, I'm taking my parents in to see him, and see if they can still refuse.

It's really sad that I still have to obey my parents at my age... but they're already taking care of my frogs while I'm away, so they always bring that up when I ask to get him.

I bring home things I'm not supposed to on my parents all the time. xD;; I didn't tell them I had bought my aqua bid pair until they were in the mail already.

Yeah, you could always ask the store to hold him for you. It never hurts to ask. (:

Yeah... I think I will ask. The shop owners aren't terribly friendly, but hopefully they'll oblige if it means selling an ugly fish. Although I don't really think he's ugly... he's just gotten less active and spry since I last saw him.

I walked up to him, though, and he perked up. c: Daaaaw. Cute little booger, making me spend my money. >:I

You know... the more I think about it, the more I realize now is a pretty bad timre for me to be getting another fish....

I wonder if someone on this forum lives near me and would be willing to take him after I nurse him and make sure he's healthy.
