Thoughts on marine betta?

My lfs has a captive small marina betta (like 2 inches) for sale. It's eating brine shrimp with ease. I know the wild caught ones can be hard to keep for feeding issues... Anyone have any insite or has anyone owned a captive bred? I'm considering picking him up as my last fish. I have:

Scooter blenny
2 occelaris clowns
Foxface
Pj cardinal
Firefish
Coral beauty

My tank is 75 gallons. All my fish are small except the fox face is about 3.5 inches. Live aquaria says my tank size is ok. Just wanted input from personal experience! Thanks!

I REALLY want a marine betta, I have an lfs kind of close to me that has an adult, my buddy who works there has been babying it, I have hand fed it- they are big and solitary, though, and I think my hubby is pretty sick of my "species only" addiction and why I have decent sized tanks with one fish or "a bunch of rocks and sand with some snails and a disappearing shrimp". Would love to see pictures if you do wind up getting him or her.
