I think we've all done this, a few times :P Mine was Sheldon, my Yellow/White Dragon VT. I wanted to buy him but the $20 price tag kind put me off. But after a week, I couldn't do it anymore and I HAD to have him! By the time I went back, he was so sick and far gone that I couldn't save him :( I ended up getting Gadget my multi CT as a replacement. If you think you can take on another, you have the money and time.... go back and get him :)

Yeah, this happened today when I was at PetSmart getting some more plants, saw a cute little cambodian crowntail, knew I shouldn't get him... wanted to... started picking out some decor for him because I thought I was gonna get him... but then I was like "omg what am I doing i just got a new betta 2 days ago" so I didn't :(

Plenty of times :)

I went back to where I got my most recent PKs and among them was a gorgeous DTPK . . . but I had to walk away in the end.
