Reminds me of my mother honestly xD

When we wen to pick out the fish (remember I got everything with my own money and we don't even live together) I went to get a bigger tank which is obviously more expensive and she picked up this tiny .5 gal tank and said it was cheaper. I said I would put my brother in that tank before a fish and she said "It's just a fish, it's only going to live a year." yeah in that dinky thing, he's going to live 5 years in the five gal.

Im so sorry ur fiance is not so understanding and compassionate about fish as u are. They are living, breathing beings that deserve a chance at life, even tho injured, as any humam does. I hope ur lil friend recovers and that ur fiance learns to be more compassionate for your sake. Take care

On another, frustratingly related thread, the OP was prevented from getting her dream fish by her "boyfriend," as she called him. Not father or husband---or mother or wife ---or someone responsible for feeding, clothing and sheltering you.

This is just another unrelated human being, not directly responsible for your welfare. And this is the twenty-first century, not the nineteenth!

Am I missing something?

Have you tried to make contact between her and the fish? I mean introduce her to him, tell her about how amazing they are, about their quirks, spawning behavior etc...

My mother was indifferent to our pet birds and fish a while ago, but after we got our first male canary and she heard him sing, she had a 180 turn. When he died she was crying more that me and my dad.

Now she loves our new one too (more the male than the female, because the female has the personality of a female betta lol).

I believe your fiance needs to interact a bit with the little guy. Try to convince her to feed him, explain that his fins will heal and will be gorgeous.

Dedicated to a soul, i let go away ages ago:
