I was at Walmart today buying supplies to make a divider for my tank. Stop by the fish aisle to see if they had any 2.5 gallon tanks. Of course they didnt. There was a couple there looking at the bettas. As soon as I got near them the man left to find a store worker. I lingered around to see what was going on. He came back told his wife he couldnt find anyone but brung back a gallon of water to fill one of the cups that only had less then one inch of water. Turns out the cup was cracked in many spots but he got the male anyways. I asked them if they had bettas before they said they use to and ask if I had any. I told yes I have a total of ten. His eyes got big.... he then aask if I had any females I told him I have 5 he was interested in buying one from me wanted to exchange numbers I thought ok why not He can have the one that keeps fighting my other females. Then he said he wanted to breed them....
well I immediately started thinking about her and even though she is my Black Sheep (her new name) Im still attached to her. I told him he cant keep a male and female in the same tank togeter. He said you can he read up on it as long as they are not two males its ok. I then started thinking how am I going to get out of this lol He told me where he lived again and I was like well I dont think she is ready to breed yet....she dont have any breeding stripes. He looked at me puzzeled. Then I told him besides Im kinda attached to her I dont think I wanna get rid of her. Then my BF told him to go to Petsmart or Petco cause they have females. Before the guy walked away he told me once again where he lived in case I wanted to sell her.
I guess I know I did the right thing but I want reassurance that I did. I feel so guilty that I was even thinking
of giving her away. I feel like I was betraying her. lol Is that weird to think that way? Even if I was to get some cash (which I could use right now) I would feel like I am paying someone to....murder her
