Should I snatch this guy up?
I was at lunch with my family today and we stopped by the pet store to look at the kittens. Of course, I went over to the bettas, and I saw the tiniest DT ever. He was active enough, but gray, and he has fin rot. He's also $7; a bit much for a small sick fish.
I don't like DTs or red bettas much, but I immediately was drawn to this guy. The other bettas were healthy and colorful, but this guy was pitiful. Right now I have Jalen in a 2.5 gal that just fits on my bedside table. I have an extra 1 gal that the DT could stay in until he's better/bigger. I'd have to order a heater and more decor, but I could put an electric blanket under the tank and give him some of Jalen's old/ugly decor until I get the stuff in. He'd have to stay in my bathroom until I found somewhere to put him.
As of right now, I'm going to wait until Thursday, when I get my paycheck. If he's still there, I'm going to trust that it was meant to be. But what do you guys think? Are two fish a lot more work than one, or does the workload stay about the same?
