I just couldn't leave her behind

So I went into Petco, to get some new plants. I peek over at the bettas and notice this little girl, only about the size of the "Petco babies", seriously seriously tiny. I notice her water is a lot lower, and I figured they lowered it because of her size or some other asinine reason (It's Petco, can't expect too much). I circled around, and came back to look at her again, picking up her cup for a closer look.

Come to discover her cup was cracked and water was leaking everywhere!! I had to walk around for 20 minutes to find someone, at this point she only had about 1/2" of water left. At this point I decided I HAD to have her. I told them they could just bag her for me, I was taking her home:



Everyone, meet Kairi. :D

thanks guys :D She's currently in a 1gal, and once Pudge's new tank is cycled, he's going to go there, and she'll go in his 3gal.

My friend just suggested the name Betta White hahahahahha

Good thing you found her! The employees are so terrible she probably would have lost all her water (if the crack went to the bottom) and died a slow painful death in a dry cup, no one would have noticed her in time.

That's such a sad thought, but she'll have a wonderful home.

Yeah the crack went all the way down around the bottom. It was sad, all of the dead ones were rosetails.

Oh that's so sad. it's always so heartbreaking and almost disturbing when I find dead Betta's
I hope she love her new home! I'd love to see pictures when you get her set up and comfortable!
