*sigh* Its happening again.

I made the hugest mistake and went to eBay to check on their listings of live bettas (Aquabid was down last time I checked) and what do my eyes lock onto? This guy:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Opal-Feather...item1e71dc8ac0

I went for about half an hour telling myself that the 3.5 gallon Kritter Keeper could house him, and even cleared a space for it, but now I am going through the other part of my "I want it" cycle. I am thinking how my mom would scream at me for getting yet another critter for my room, and not wanting to deal with that. Besides, what would I house my other betta in if he got sick and I needed to ISO him (he lives in a tank with 5 purple mystery snails and who knows how many MTS)?

Ah, the joy of it all.

Yeah I saw a light blue doubletail plakat at a pet store today. I wasn't even supposed to go in, but I spotted it near the chiropractor that I went to. I can't take any more bettas either.

Self control! (It totally won't be worth getting yelled at by your mom right now, right?)

I'd get him :)

I just bought another fish and my mom won't know about it until she sees him. Then I'm going to play the whole "someone gave it to me" card.

Tell her it was an urgent rescue from one of us. We'll enable your addiction! But you have to promise you will enable me when I tell Hubby I want a HMPK. Deal?

im just a gullible when i have room for a betta. when i have no extra room ie 5 max i can hold off any such purchases. i had my mind focused on getting a PK which meant waiting atleast 2 week for a shop to get one. i decided by chance to go to a LPS and couldnt resist gettin my newest one. the DeT wasnt my plan but i couldnt help myself.
