I know, that betta is gorgeous! It totally looks like he's tangled in the roots, your right! :( Poor thing! Just pray he gets a real, decent sized home. :/

why not try to see if the person would sell you just the betta, or go down lower on the price? shoot, for that price(if i was horrible enough to do it), i could get a few bettas, bamboo, and vases, not just one! x-X i'd NEVER do that to a betta, though. just saying that they're expecting too much for what they're selling.

I agree about the price Luimeril! I will try to convince my parents, but I can't get my hopes up. It's not very close to my house either, a good few hours drive away, I don't know if I'd be able to convince them to drive all that way "just for a fish". He is definitely a beauty. I'll bring it up tomorrow at breakfast maybe. Wish me luck, but don't expect much.

Argh, wait until I get my drivers license, I'll be cruising the streets, saving bettas everywhere XD

Well, my mom said no. ):
I can understand why she said no though. Hopefully the poor little guy is ok!

I did contact the person, though. Apparently they expected to have their parent drive them to the buyer's house, so s/he can hold it securely so it didn't break.
Which it's sad to think they sound like they care about the betta in that way... or they just don't want to break it...

Anyway, I kinda wish I asked, "Well, I live a very long way away, mind if I just pay for the plant and fish and the shipping? I'll tell you how to ship him!"
Blaaaah... but I didn't do that. D: And I don't have money for shipping anymore either. (Got a new betta from Thailand. xP )

I almost live around the corner. I emailed them to see if they'd just sell the fish. Not that I need another fish but it looks even worse than the little cups at stores..

Exactly. Makes me wonder if they even think about how little room he has. At all.
My guess: Probably not.
