As I've said before, I bought Merlin from a Wal-Mart near my college since I needed the companionship/something to take care of.
Well, tonight I went into Wal-Mart after work since I needed to buy groceries for my mom (wanted to go to Pet Smart too to look at the heaters there, but they were closed :/) and I decided to visit the fish section.
My heart broke when I saw the condition of one boy. I can't even tell you what tail type he was since I was so appalled at his living conditions. His water was absolutely filthy, and the poor boy was lying on his side at the top of his cup. When I picked it up, he righted himself and gave me such a pleading expression that I nearly took him home...part of me wishes that I had, but I just don't want to spend the money to get a 10 gallon tank, transport said tank to college, not to mention not just two bettas, but three to college. I ended up setting him back on the self, and I still feel terrible
These are the times I not only hate being a college student, but on a budge too. I can't afford to keep purchasing tanks, heaters, etc. *sigh* I wish I could. I hope that boy finds a good home since he looked like a real sweetheart.
Anyway, on a funnier note: quote of the night from me as I was heading home: *sees skunk starting to cross the road* *gasp* "Poo-poo skunk!"
All right, so I thought it was funny XD
