Should I rescue him?

OK, so one of my lfs has two very awesome fish kept in the worst way. One is a HM and the other a mustard gas DT. The HM is in a half gallon bowl with dirty water halfway up. The DT is in a 4x4 cube and is missing one of his tails, most of his tail is lying on his cube floor. :(
I can't get both of them but i'm quite keen on the HM because I've wanted one for a long time and helping this guy will make me feel better too :).
Problem is that:
a) He's too expensive so unless the shop owner reduces the price, I can't get him.
b) He has a big black spot (almost like a wart, it is convex) on his upper lip. I was doing some research as if I want to get him, I should know how to cure what's ailing him as well. I found a lot of different possibilities.. Cotton mouth, black spot disease, parasites, mouth rot..

Can anyone help me figure out what this maybe? I may be able to get pictures tomorrow, at least I can get you a very good description if nothing else. he seems to have a little fin rot but is mostly active and responsive. (Amazing for something stewing in it's own filth for 2 weeks)
I would really like to be able to save this guy so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Shame you couldn't sneak a pic of the HM's black spot. Not having meds makes it harder. How much is he?

400 rupees :( If he brings it down to two I wont bat an eyelid... I'll see if I can get a photo today. I know the shop owner, he's a nice guy, just doesn't like fish X(

400 rupees, about $9. Yeah, that's a little steep. Hopefully he'll be reasonable and drop the price. A discount sale is better than no sale, which is what he'll have if the fish dies.

I agree! That poor guy's been there for 2-3 weeks now and considering the rare number of people buying normal bettas, this guy has a snowball's chance in hell if I don't get him :(
I don't know if you read the plan me and my bf have made to get him lol! I love sucking him into these things, he's so easily lead lol. I'll copy paste it for you if you missed it.

Seriously XD thankfully he doesn't mind the fish. He says as long as he doesn't need to clean the gazillion tanks its fine. He only doesn't like that I get upset over everything that happens to them...

And of course you know he only gets upset because he doesn't like to see YOU upset.
