If only! D:

I went into my local petsmart lastnight and had to keep myself from buying one of the most beautiful betta's I've ever seen. He was a deep shimmering blue with some green on his fins, and he was also a double tail half moon. Times like these always make me say "If only I had another home for you to get you out of that cup! :(" It was definitely hard to fight the urge.

What about you guys? What If Only moments have you had, whether it be about bettas, plants, tanks, decor, etc.?

There's a betta on Ebay that makes me think, "If only I had some more money." because he really speaks to me.

Oh yes, I think that way everyday I look on AB..or Ebay..or go into Petco..I am always thinking well, I could get another tank, and another heater, and some more plants, and this or that..but right now.. just cannot..:(
Eventually tho, I am planning on doing a 10 gal divided, and freeing up both my 5 and 3 gal tanks, for more:)

Everytime I go to the pet store, it's ALWAYS an "if only."

Especially because I had to fight my mom just to get one betta, an even more to get the second.

I once found a shimmery blue half moon with a perfect 50/50 white butterfly at PetCo. Nearly screamed in frustration.

That's why I go to pet stores every week. Because it eventually gets me a new betta!

My dad NEARLY bought me a ten gallon today. Bad idea on his part.

But what I do is replace the stuff in my tank and keep the old stuff. Then I always have a few extra bucks on hand.

My grandmother is considering putting a drop down ladder into our attic and making a whole room for me up there. Best part is last week she said "IF ONLY you had your own room, you could have as many bettas as you wanted. I'd even pay some!"

These two on Aquabid- I'm no expert on what makes a great fish, I just loved the colors. Like you said, they "spoke to me".
