Well hopefully he found a new home.

I noticed you said something like "I'll cycle the tank and look again in a week or so" ... I just wanted to make sure you are aware that cycling a tank takes anywhere from 6-8 weeks. But you can do a fish-in cycle if you find a fish you truly cant live without :)

I'm sorry.

This happened to me before. Saw this gorgeous pineapple VT, but didn't have the proper setup. I got a kritter keeper & 25 watt heater as a temporary home, but he was gone when I went to get him. So sorry! :(

Hey, everyone... sorry for not getting back to you!

I purchased the tank and began setting it up, but quickly realized that my stand simply wasn't strong enough, but today I had a friend over and asked if there was a way to make it work and he said that there is plenty of support in it.

So, I'm back at it. The tank is up, I'm going to buy plants and decor tomorrow and get the betta in about a week... I'll post pics if anyone is still interested :3

I just want to add my plus one to what aemaki said - one week is not long enough to allow the tank to cycle. I strongly advise steering clear of petshops for the next 6 weeks, doing a fishless cycle, and then giving into temptation as much as you want. :p
