Talking terrible short term decision, wonderful long term one

I was at Walmart with my Mom and was intending on stocking up on my weekly groceries when I stumbled into the pet section. I had no clue this Walmart even sold fish! Well, I was looking at plastic plants when a little girl held up a cup with about an inch of water and half dead fish. They only had 5 bettas on the shelf and I immediatly picked up the smallest and a new tank. Then had to walk around returning my groceries that I could no longer afford.

But he's precious! A tiny little crown tail male, about the size of half my pinky, mostly blue but flashes of purple and red on his fins. I tried getting a picture but he's too terrified of me right now to let me see him.

Gonna name him once I see his personality shine though a little bit :) Right now I'm leaning more towards either Ceaser or Gale.
I'll be hungry for the rest of the week but at least I have a new friends :)

Oh, and either he has really big eyes for such a little dude or he has pop eye. I honestly can't tell. If I can get a picture I'll upload it.

Awwww... he was worth all of the mac and cheese or Ramen noodles that you'll be eating this week.

Good luck with your new little buddy.

lol that's funny because I just finished a serving of mac and cheese :)
My boyfriend isn't too impressed, he took one look at him and said "he is alive?"
Yes, is he alive, just terrified and wanted to be left alone!

I don't think he has pop-eye. I have had a few bettas with larger than average eyes, and I think that's all it is. He'll grow into them I bet :)

No, he wont :( He was dead when I woke up this morning :'( I did everything right when I introduced him to the new tank but I guess he was sicker than I realized. Screw you, Walmart.

Friday I'll go to petsmart and find a stressed out fishy friend to try and save, no sense wasting a tank.

:'(

I'm sorry to hear this. At least he had a good life for a few days :(

Let us know what you get at Petsmart.
