what can i do?
i apologize in advance for my rant. If rants annoy you, please ignore this post and skip the rude comments.
I love rescuing fish and watching them heal, however what can I Do when I see bettas being mistreated in my own house??
My mom owns a 10gal tank with 3 female bettas, only 2 Cory catfish, Six or seven neon tetras (several have died) and one male Betta!! Not only is she totally over stocking, but she has no clue about the nitrogen cycle and doesn't listen to me. She doesn't do any 50% changes as often as she should. Her fish (tetras) have already started dying. And putting 3 female bettas and 1 male betta together is a disaster waiting to happen.
So far, the bettas have gotten along. The male usually hides all day and I rarely see him. But im just waiting for the inevitable to happen, and I honestly feel bettas will follow the tetra's lead and die.
My mom doesn't listen to me, and the only thing I can do is take care of my own betta who's perfectly happy in his heated and filtered 5gal.
What can I do?? Its my mom and she doesn't even care about what I have to say, even after her fish keep dying. I just hate watching these beautiful fish pass away.
Any suggestions? I'm honestly stuck
