SO very tempted

I went to Petsmart yesterday to see if they had any new dragons and they didn't. I checked out the HMs (though I don't care for the large fins), but I saw a guy I fell for. He's a white marble with blue and black splotches all over his fins and body. He was small so I know he's pretty young. I wanted to take him home because I have an empty 4 gallon here.
Honestly, the only thing stopping me is the extra work.

I would definitely grab him! I actually don't mind cleaning tanks and such, I find it pretty fun, hahah X) and since you got everything all set up, I think you should go for it!

The tanks aren't a problem really, I just have 2 kids and a household to uphold as well.

I might go back soon, if he's still there I don't think I'll be able to resist a second time.

I give myself a few days (like a limit) and go back, and if that betta is there, it was meant to be!

Say 3 days, or a week, or whatever. :)

I understand the too busy thing. I bounce around to different households constantly and I'm rarely "home". Therefore water changes are a big hassel because I literally have to schedule them into my week.. >.< I don't need anything extra on my plate!

Kaida- CT Female 2.5 Gal.
Julep- HMPK Male 2.5 Gal.
Fandango-HM Male 10 Gal.

I'd get him if he is still there. However if you don't want the extra work you could always mail me your 4gal setup and I'll put a betta in it ;)

Yes, I would give myself a few days to think the
idea through like laughing said. And if you find that it will work out,
then I would go for it!
