Question YES or NO Should I rescue?

Ok, so I've kinda been wanting to do this, one fish at a time. I want to rescue. Of course I may end up keeping one or two but still. My local Petsmart is willing to give me their sick fish for free, so I could nurse them back to health, then adopt them out. Like I said, only one fish at a time. But I was thinking of the adoption fee's of-

MALE VT AND CT- $3.50
FEMALE VT AND CT- $1.50
MALE DT AND HM- $5.00
FEMALE DT AND HM-$2.50
MALE PLAKAT AND PLAKAT HALFMOON-$7.00
FEMALE PLAKAT AND PLAKAT HALFMOON-$4.50

If you can risk the money, then go for it. Just be careful as sometimes the rescues you try to nurse back don't always live.. So I think you should try to get the minor sicknesses first so you can work your way up to major ones to get some experience. I also think the prices should matter on the color.

I know, but I think the price should vary on the color.
Like you get a solid red HM and a blue marble VT. If I were the buyer, I would buy the VT. Not because of the price but because of the pattern. And you list the VT as $3.50 and the HM as $5. Get my point?

Lol I'm sorry! I didn't know ... But I wasn't sure exactly what you mean, but yeah I agree. Change the price a bit for color.

Rescuing can be very rewarding. Also, check around your local classifieds (Craigslist, Kijiji) and maybe adopt out un-wanted betta's from people.
