Glad you're getting that Dalmatian! I'm totally jealous. :P

So do I (obviously lol)
VTs are only $5 (with tax) here, so its not huge hole in my wallet till I need to get tanks (3 gal kritter cages for $7 though )
I have an extra soft spot for the ones on deaths door... most I have gotten to pull through (luckily I have yet to see one with popeye)

lol,cant wait to go get him... still havent decided whether to get the yellow guy with blue streaks or one of the guys in the dirt cups :(

Hmm. Then I would go there, get the sickest and line them up, then close your eyes and point. Or just go with your gut. Personally, I would pray and ask which one needed my help the most, but since I'm a Christian and bring that into every aspect of my life, most people aren't going to do that lol.
That was how I chose my Jalen though. I prayed that I would find the fish that was most in need of care, and it suddenly occurred to me to check behind the tanks they had on display right next to the bettas. I did, and there was Jalen, gray as a ghost and literally breathing his own poo. I snatched him up in a heartbeat.
/end story
If they're all equally sick, maybe you could just chose the one you think would color up the best once they got better.

i always go by personality/which one you just bond with right there. Sometimes they just give you the look and you know you have to take that one home lol!

I went with my brother to get a betta a few years ago, and he picked one up that he really liked. He started flaring and trying to bite my brother through the cup. My brother was like, "This one!" I just looked at him like O.O
