Looking for a betta~

Okay, so since I figured I might have a better chance at this on here, I;m making this,

I am looking for a betta, but here is the catch, until I get my first paycheck (don't know when that will be), I only have $3 avaliable in my paypal account. To help, I can either pay in full when I have the cash, or I can pay in art.

I'm planning on getting another betta to put in the 5 gallon since I have 4 in the 10 and can put 2 in the 5 (which means I can have 6 fish).

This betta will NOT be used for breeding.

What I am looking for:
A. A MALE betta
B. A regular halfmoon (bonus points for rosetail) or plakat.
C. Non solid colors. Bonus points for mustard gases or black.
D. Possibly a marble if it fits the above criteria
E. Healthy body and fins. No deformities unless necessary.

What I am not looking for:
A. Super Deltas or any other tail type (unless it's a double tail halfmoon)
B. Sick bettas
C. Bettas with history of terrible tailbiting or other chronic sickness (like mystery disease or dropsy)

I am willing to take in a betta recovering from a slight case of tailbiting, but major ones with extreme damage, I'll pass :/

As an FYI, please keep in mind the money I do have and that even with my paycheck, I still might not be able to afford, so if you're asking $20 shipping, that'd be hard. Asking for a $20 fish might be hard as well :/

So PLEASE only post if you're willing to sell for cheap!

***PLEASE include pictures!!!!***

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Someone I know is opening a site and I have job as one of the background artists, but I don't know if I will be paid within the first few weeks of it being open (WHEN it opens) because she's literally JUST getting enough for the site's lisence and domain. :/

I am applying for two jobs on my campus so fingers crossed.

Oh, I also forgot to mention that its prefered if the betta is okay with being in a divided tank and has shown no problems to being in a shared tank.

Unfortunately it will be hard to find a seller/breeder who won't charge shipping - average cost of shipping is $12 - 35 (express). Especially if it is winter where the breeder is/you are, as they will have to include a heat pack which aren't all that cheap.

Good luck though - hope you find one!

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!
