I'm going to swing by the store real quick and see if he's still there. My mom doesn't want me to get another fish, and there's not point twisting her arm and maybe getting into a fight if he's not even there anymore lol.

He was. I asked if he could be put on hold, and they said the longest they can hold a fish is 24 hrs. Kinda bs for a store that sure doesn't sell many bettas, but it's probably for the best since my mom hasn't quite agreed to it yet.

She told me that as long as he's "my brother's" then it won't be too much. Debating on whether I should still wait till Thursday though.

Alright, today I caved, and got him. There were a few dead ones on the shelf as well, and I stacked those and stuck them on the 'workshop desk' in the back of the fish area. Lord, this fish is small. I took some pics, and I'll upload them once I get the hospital tank set up. I almost wonder if he is a she; he wasn't flaring at the other fish, has kinda small fins, and didn't flare at Jalen when I held them close to compare sizes. No egg spot that I can see though.

Congrats! Look forward to pics :) Sometimes even the males wont flare at another betta if they've been on the shelf in a cup next to other males. They get desensatized.
