Red face y'all.. I need your help.

Ok.. so since I might not be getting Jumaji and Levi (I'm actually glad Zeandra might get to keep her fish and I hope they're getting better).. well I'm going to have a 6 gallon tank and possibly a 10 gallon empty!!!!

I DON'T want to buy petstore fish!!! I really want to wait until I can get fish from breeders, HM or HMPK.

My betta club is having a show in may and I might be able to purchase fish at the show (I haven't been to one so I'm not sure).

So here's where y'all come in.. and I know this goes against our enabler tendencies but PLEASE tell me not to get more fish (petstore ones)!! I need reasons why I shouldn't go looking on sunday and I'm starting to draw a blank and second guessing myself

I have hardly any will power and waiting till may is a LONG time to have an empty tank! HELP!

You can go into a pet store, just wear a blind fold. :)

I keep telling myself no more petstore fish but they are so convenient!! So I finally decided no petstore fish unless they are just too good to pass up.. like rare or something lol Maybe that would help??

Just keep in mind, when you go into a petstore, that you are saving your money for a good quality, well bred fish.

Yeah thats what I keep telling myself. I've been lucky that there haven't really been any nice nice fish lately. I really want to get a girl (I've never had a female) and you can really find cute ones at petsmart... I have to tell myself that I can get girls free if I buy males from breeders (not that I'm looking for a pair.. I'm in no position to breed right now.)

You could also buy culls from a breeder since you're not going to breed. I don't know about you, but I am not overly picky about fins or colors as long as they look nice and not deformed and their colors are colors I like. That way, you'll feel better about "rescuing" a less desirable betta, but not having to get one from the store. And you'll get them for cheaper (and sometimes free!).

Most of the breeders in my clubs are breeding "wilds". If anyone does bring me fish at the meeting I'm pretty sure they will be culls.. no one gives nice fish away for free. The breeder's on my other forum who I'm also looking to get fish from would probably be sending me the lower quality or culled fish.
