really need to stop going to petco...

I went to petco to get some more stress coat and see if they if they had any omega one shrimp pellets. And of coarse i had to look at the bettas and the betta i liked a few weeks ago. He was gone and i would have walked out of the store without a betta..... untill i saw a poor little EE. Admitedly EE's arent my favorite but this guy was half blind as far as i could tell. One eye was white the other cloudy. I couldnt leave him behind.
Ill post more on it when i get home and ill take pics.

I did the same thing. Plus my petco has the bettas right next to where they bag your fish. So you kind of have to look at them. They have this really nice rose tail mustard gas betta. Im soooooooo tempted, but i have nowhere to put him! I see another tank in my sort future, sighhhhh lol.

The one i go two. Has them in 3 or 4 different locations as well. Its so hard, i try not to look at them. But than i do and see 10 really nice ones. Only if i lived in Texas or somewhere warm where you dont need heaters. I would have like 10 fish rooms, or even a fish house lol.

Im home now so I can do more of a update.
I just got him home and acclimated him and he's currently exploring. Though for now it seems like he gets tired easy and rests a lot. He's also breathing a bit heavy but that's probably because he was just moved into a large clean tank. I don't techniqly have the space for another betta but I couldn't leave him there especialy because he was blind. He's already really grown on me, Fingers crossed he makes it.
I also decided to test his water since I was cureouse as to how bad it was...... It turned dark green. Somehow I managed to loose my chart for the colors so I don't now exactly what number it is. Ill have to find that soon.
So with out further ado here he is. Sorry the pics are a bit blurry my camera is about to die so I wanted to take pics before it did.

How much ammonia was in his tiny cup:

If that's the API master kit, the ammonia is somewhere between 4.0 and 8.0 if my computer is displaying colors correctly. Poor little guy, I hope he makes it.

He looks pretty good. He was there for a while i bet. Mine was there for ever. I remember just looking at the bettas and seeing this whitish old looking EE. Then around 3 months later i look again. And see this old whitish EE now blind. It was in the same area, must be the same. So i just had to have him, cuz i couldnt have him die in this cup. So now he has his own 1 gallon tank, i know it isnt the BEST for him. But it is all i can do right now.

Yupp that's the master API test kit, thanks for the help OSD. Poor guy, after watching him I think he might have some form of SBD. I don't think its to to bad though luckily. I cant wait to get better pics of him tomorrow. He's got a really pretty steel blue body and dorsal with a pretty deep red on his fins with a bit of white edging on his ventral and caudal tail. His ears are mostly white with a bit of color on them, though it looks like his right ear is missing a small chunk .
