So yesterday I went to Petsmart to see the bettas but the shelf they usually have with 30+ bettas was empty, apparently everyone wanted a betta that week, since I asked and they said they had sold them all.
As I was talking to the fish person, he mentioned that they had some sick ones in the back, and one they were treating that was totally blind. I asked if I could see him. When I saw him, I knew he was a diamond eye (thanks to this forum :P) and I told the person it was a genetic deformity due to inbreeding. He said they would stop treating him, but would have to keep him in the back for the rest of his life since they couldn't sell him as he was.
After more talking/persuading I was told to come back today to see the store manager to see if she could override store policy and let me buy/adopt him.
Well they let me buy him, if I waited longer I probably could have adopted him but I didnt want to wait X)
So now, I have a lovely little blind betta scooting around in a 2.5 gallon c:
He is currently nameless, but I'm leaning towards Peekoe.
I have a blind betta now, here are pictures 8D
Him getting used to his new tank.
The pictures don't do him any justice, hes a very light blue with a green and pink iridescence.
