Unhappy I feeel soo guilty!!!

Ok so ill start from the start.
Yesterday i did some reserch and found out my fav LFS was way over pricing things and was told about this other little fish store in my area that was really good priced ect so i went to check them out. Wow was it ever awsome in there, instantly made it my new fav LFS they had tanks everywhere deco everywhere everything and cheap as too!!! So i decide that if this is gonna be my new go to store i must check out the bettas.. Amazing care they where givin each where in 1-2 liter jars with crystal clean water ( they change the water everyday) i was happy as. So i go get my new tank for my axolotls (v-day gift from hubby :) and decide to look back one more time at them, and take a good look at one really pretty pastal blue betta that has a bacterial infection :'( I had no where i could have put this guy till i get my 8 gallon tank this weekend plus would have to wait till the sealent dries (casue im gonna split the tank)... So why i feel so bad is i realized... doh.. he would have been in a QT prob till all that woulda been done..and im sure the pet store woulda givin him to me for free.. sadly i work today so i cant go back and see if he is there..so if he is there on sunday when i go back ( i hope) ill be bringing him home with me.. i feel soo bad about this.

p.s this had showed me that even the bestest of care an aquarium shop can do there is normaly gonna be that odd sick fish so i def dont hold it against the store... hopfully i can get a pick of how they keep the bettas its really awsome.

Don't feel too bad! If someone else picks him out, they might not be the best betta owner and they might not be able to treat his infection, but he'll be happy for a while. At least feel good knowing your heart is in the right place. Hope he is there when you go back!

don't feel guilty. D: it happens, ya know? when i took my first ever trip to Petsmart, almost every betta they had, had SBD. i felt horrid, but there wasn't much i could do. :< so, i called and told the manager about it, and about the one i did get that died that night. he offered me a replacement, and said he'd do everything he could to help the fishies that did have it. :d i couldn't get my replacement betta, but it made me feel a bit better.

Aww, sorry you couldn't get the other one, but at least you were able to get another! Bubbles is a cute name.
