Red face I gave in =/

My fiance and I go to Petco almost everyday, just to browse and talk about our big future fish plans. About a month ago I noticed this beautiful little deltatail male.. He looked like a perfect sunset. I told myself "no, I already have 3, and am going to spawn soon."
And every time after that:
"No, I already have enough and now I also have babies.."

Well it's been a month and the poor guy was still there today!
Now that is just not fair. (To him or to me, lol)

Soooo... I had my fiance try to talk me out of it.
He tried everything! I mean everything. None of it worked.
And now he has asked me never to ask him to try and talk me out of anything ever again Uh-oh!

So.. Let's just get to the point.
Hello, My name is Smr2892, and I'm a betta addict.
*background* "Hello Smr2892..."

And here is my new amazingly gorgeous boy, Carnelion! (I may change his name, not sure yet)

That's not weird! I can definitely see sherbet!
I've decided to stick with carnelion. It's a gemstone that he reminds me of, I just spelled it a bit differently. :)

Nice, he's bloated though. Fast him and watch carefully. You may want to QT him and put Epsom salt 1 tsp/gallon in to help. He's very cute!

I noticed the bloating, too. I'm going to leave him overnight and see if it's gone in the morning, if not I bought epsom salt, just in case. I'm hoping maybe they overfed him this morning and he just needs to make a nice big potty. Here's to hoping! Thank you for the concern and tip!

Wait, would leaving him overnight be too long? I just wanted to give him some time to settle in and see if he improved before jumping into the salt.. But not if that could cause him to get worse..

Thank you guys! Our petco actually gets some nice bettas in. And they're pretty well taken care of, too. I just hate those cups :/
