can't stop thinking...

...about a (possibly) nice looking delta guy i saw at petco last saturday. he had been there for a while and wasn't looking so well... i was afraid to get him because his tail was kind of bunched together, but it didn't look like fin rot (his tail was still in-tact). Grrrrr!!!

Seriously, i need help on how to get bettas off the mind??? I hyper-focus on things really easily and now I can't stop thinking about/wanting to rescue the bettas I saw at Petco! I'd like to rescue this guy, but don't have enough room (have my 10 gal divided 3 ways already and don't have enough $ to buy another tank set-up).

Any advice on how to stop thinking about them/buying them?? or a way to CHEAPLY rescue this guy?? (if he is still alive!)

The only way to not think about buying them is to not go to a fish shop! Lol. And when that fails, I don't look at them when I'm there! I started off with two back in about September, and by the end of the month I'll have 7, which I think is the max I'll get cos Dad will probably murder me if I use any more electricity :P

Do you have a friend willing to look after this fish? Can you give it a temporary home until you are able to get it a permanent home? Some people ask if they can have the fish cheaper or even free, based on the fact that no one will buy a fish that looks that sick...
