That is what happens to me every time that I go in a fish store :( . I even went so far as to think that I could set up my extra 5.5 gallon as a rescue betta tank. The only problem is, well $ for starters, and good homes for them. When I told my mom this, she said no one would pay an adoption fee (to cover their expenses) for a rescue betta
. Oh, I forgot to mention that I was not intending to buy them (I will not promote the cruel treatment of bettas) but rather demand the dying ones for free! Well, maybe someday I will have the money and space to rescue them all.
