I ditto tht ohhrats... lol

Heres my thought on getting another betta "You dont hae room for another... even though you have that on area with no tank... you don have a tank... its tax free weekend.. and Petsmart is having that big sale... I dont need another sweet, funny, beutiful little betta that more than likely will not get out of the petstore to a home bigger than a .5 gallon bowl..if that."

so yeah... good luck!!!

I have the opposite problem LOL If my store was full of happy healthy Bettas blowing bubbles *say that 3 times* then I would have no issue walking away. But mines full of half dead gasping little poor souls :( I want to take them all home.

But hey, go out and pick yourself up another Betta ;) I said I only wanted 1, and a month and a half later I have 3 happy boys!

I would try to tell you not to do it, but it would be half hearted.
