Want to buy this betta but..

I wish I could spend money to order a nice betta online but I really am trying to save money in any way I can (even though I'm still spending lol). I saw a beautiful white betta at petco. His behavior was the best out of their selection of bettas and just glancing at him he looked great. However, upon closer inspection I saw he has little pinkish red dots around his head. I couldn't tell if they were tiny holes or discoloration.

Anyway, I chose not to buy him but I was sad to just leave him there at petco since he is so lovely. I am sure he is still there. any thoughts on what it might be? Of course I don't have the water parameters of his cup at the store..

Bettas are very resilient fish. Knowing that he will be coming home to WAY better conditions than what he is in at the store, I would say go ahead and get him. Chances are whatever it is, it will be better within a few weeks with proper care.

Get him! He will be much better in your care and I'm sure he just needs some work!
