rckstr1253, I don't know your situation, so I'm not necessarily aiming this at you. But your comment "bought at petland I bought since they were damaged" (italics mine) made me think of this... So not aimed at you, but as a general statement...
If any one wants to rescue a critter from a pet store, don't pay for it. By paying for it, you're feeding money into the system that allows them to produce even more critters that will be treated equally as badly. I mean, for example, for every betta you purchase in a filthy cup amongst dead bettas, they'll just ship in another betta in a filthy cup to take its place. Feeding money into this situation just perpetuates the cycle! I know its hard to pass up a suffering creature, but trust me- that one creature may have to suffer, and that's absolutely terrible, BUT you'll save other creatures from suffering. The cycle will never stop until we stop feeding it!
This goes for aquatic creatures, or pet store/puppy mill puppies and kitties, or reptiles, or pocket pets, or exotics, or birds or whatever. Getting your creatures for real rescues would be the best option. The next best option is getting them from breeders that actually care about the lives they bring into this world.
