So, yesterday I went to Petco to buy some water conditioner. Well I just had to walk by the Bettas and what did I see? This beautiful Purple Butterfly HMPK!!! They had a couple purples there but this one was perfect. The purple was so bright and vivid, the white butterfly rim was absolutely perfect and he had made a really big bubble nest in his little cup! I stupidly didn't take a picture but I was wondering, is his coloration rare? What about his tail type?
I am really considering going back to take a second better look at him. But my mom would probably never let me buy a second Betta or probably even go back to consider buy a second Betta. I hate not having a car. Anyway, any ideas for a solution? I have about $20 in dollar coins that I have had since I was a kid, I collected them. But now that I am older I would be willing to use that money to buy this amazing Betta. But that money could only buy me a small temporary tank. Unheated and very small. Maybe 1/2 gallon to 1 gallon but that has to be better then what he is in now right?
I would only consider buying him if he is rare. So my main question is.
Is he worth trying to talk my mom into letting me buy him?
