I DID IT AGAIN!! BETTA buy!

I did it again! Ahhhhhh... Made a run into Petsmart for fish food and came out with the food, another plastic plant and a tiny little 1" female Betta...
The little females were on sale for .99 (from their usual $2.99)... I looked and looked and picked her...
Going home to get her out of the cup...
She's active and didn't flare at my finger. She is a dull mixture of blue, green, orange and yellow...

Why do I keep doing this? It's not MTS... It's MFS!!

But, hey she's cute!

I had my first impulse buy last week. I ended up with a 1gal. tank with mini filter 2 little plants and a decoration. Well, I had a hard time with the ammonia jumping sky high in a day sooooo...Today I went to petco, bought a 10 gal. tank and set it up with a few diff. fake plants and a decoration, maybe 2. Now the little guy should be happy!

OHHHHHH NOOOOOO!!! After I moved her into the tank I see she's missing her left eye!!
It's not swollen or infected...

I think I need to make a quick return...

Why? Help the fish, nurse it to health (although it will never get its eye back).
