i hate having to choose fish, mu first one was planned so i had to go through everyone and pick the "best" but i really wanted them all. The second jumped out at me so i didnt really look at the others at all. but every time i go to my LFS i want to save them all. i live in a small town and i worry about how fast they are really being sold. i know at one time they told me all their bettas got bought for a wedding and i shook my head. i wonder what happened to them.... :(

So sad too, i always want them all :) The sad part is when you find out the wedding planners use the bettas in thin vases as centerpieces on tables where they get shaken, are cold, and probably pass away before the reception is over :(

Yes, that is the problem, that is how I got my 2nd fishy..my rescue, he was a former wedding present..and he came to me still in a vase, which I heard was a small transfer from the original wine glass that they were in on the table, and he had fin rot, and was all gray, and lifeless..but he has come back from the dead, after being nursed in a 3day salt treatment..I hate having to go to Petco, for supplies, and look at the betta's that I really want, and have to walk away wondering if they will ever get to a good home..
