Exclamation Should I take them?

So my bf's sister has 2 bettas a male and female. She just asked me if I would take them and keep them at my house. I'm not sure what I should do. I already have 13 of my own to take care of and keep up with. However her fish are in less than 1/2 gal bowls, the male is in one of the triangle small "bowls" they have at the fish stores and the female is in a bud vase. I have shared with her that they need more space than that, but her parents don't care that much about a "stupid" fish. I know that I have 2 open 1gal tanks right now here, and that they'd probably do much better here with me... I don't know Should I take them in?

You'd be closer to sainthood.

Would you feel resentful?

Maybe take them, but put an ad in Craigslist to re-home them?

I would say take them, they won't last long in those conditions. I am sure they would be so thankful of it too.
