Do you ever feel guilty?

For choseing one fish over another? Hi guys there is a white betta at Walmart that has been there since I got Jack about 2-3 weeks ago I saw him again yesterday and I feel bad because I know he is the same one he is white with a couple red specks I did not get him when I got Jack because I did not have enough money. I am surprised the little guy is still alive in his dirty cup. I really feel bad because I have bought Indigo since then but from a different place. I get paid today and I really think I am going to go get him and rescue him from that awful dirty cup. I know no one will by him because he is plain and everyone wants the pretty colorful ones. I even tried to confense a couple that were looking at the bettas yesterday that he was a rare find to see if they would get him but they bought a purple one instead. At least I was able to confense them not to get the little betta bowl they were going to get and instead they got a 3 gallon tank for there new friend. I think they thought I worked there because they keep asking me questions. LOL If I go get him I will get him a 3 gallon tank they have at a different store that is on sale for $20.00 and it has a light, a filter, and if memory serves me right a heater. What color gravel do you guys think would go good with him? I was thinking maybe red with white mixed in? Oh and he would also have some live plants in there since I have found out how much my others enjoy them. Sorry its kind of long I just can stop thinking about the poor little guy.

Thank you I hope he made it through the night he was looking pretty week yesterday. I wish my paycheck would hurry up and get here so I can go get him. I thought about black to and maybe get one of those little oriental looking house decorations to put in it.

He is a veil tail. I think it would be cheaper for me to drive them to you then it would be to ship them. LOL One day I will find you an orange one and bring him to you if I ever have a whole day of from both my jobs. Sometimes seems like I am always at one or the other. LOL

No I really don't feel guilty at all because I only have 2 bettas 1 was the one that was not the prettiest, but he spoke to me in his own fishy way but now he is more beautiful then all of the other crowntails there (belides veil that is the only other betta they have aat Petsmart) , and the other I got becaude he was the second sickest there ( the other was already floating not completely dead, but floating) anyway my little Akiro is doing better now, happily swiming around in his bowl as we type.

Ok Christina the next orange one I find will have your name on it, would you like me to try to find a white one also? I could ship them together if I find them close to the same time. I have never shipped anything that is alive what would be the best way to do it?

Hmm yeah, i feel bad when I can't get some bettas. Like when I first got my girls, there was a gorgeous blue/white CT in a dirty cup. He was such a little guy, too. He had a bit of fin rot. But I couldn't get him.
