Unhappy Depressed

Hey guys.
I was at Walmart this evening and there was this adorable male VT. He had a pink/orange iridescent body. The base of his fins was orange then the ends were transparent (Don't know if that is a bad thing? Can someone help on that?) I fell in love with him I was ready to take him home and I stopped myself. I have 8 already and don't really have a place for him.
Now that I am home I realized I have a spare vase that could work in a pinch and I could move my stereo back and have him on top the fridge.... I'm bummin' cause I left him there.

Mr. McFish's swimming fins are transparent with blue swimming fin bone skin. Next time you go to Walmart look at the Bettas agian and he might still be there.:)

Yeah, I hope so. Both Walmart's in town are doing away with their fish departments. One already has. So I think they are on their last shipment. They only have a few bettas and they are all in HORRIBLE conditions, wish i could save them all. But this one especially stuck out to me. I always get weird bonds with my fish. LOL. I won't be able to go back up till saturday. If he is still there I am definitely gonna get him. I didn't know what to think about his fins, thanks for help on that, sumsum.

Usually when a Fish's fins are growing, the tips will get clear. :)

It doesn't really look like new fin growth.... unless he was really beat up or something cause his fins are very long and half of them are orange and half are clear. Could this just be a type of coloring?

Alright thank you. I really hope I will be able to get him tomorrow. I haven't seen anyone over there since the couple I helped a few days ago. And they all look very dirty and feel sorry for all of them

I think it's his coloring cuz the last inch or so of Blues fins are clear. I love it, so beautiful. Then when he settled in, his colors brightened up and now they're a whiteish/silverish clear. So I think it may be his coloring if not fin regrowth. I hope you can get him.
