My StudCo sucks...bettas aren't centerpieces
Our prom theme this year was Atlantis, so what does my StudCo think would make an awesome centerpiece on every table? Betta fish.
Not only is this absolutely cruel (come on teenagers are going to do awful things and can you imagine the noise? poor guys) but the fish clearly hadn't had water changes in ages. The poor guys were SICK. Tail rot EVERYWHERE, fish had bitten their tails off...terrible.
I rescued three, and my date and a friend each rescued one. Kara's is perfectly healthy (Like, the only one that was) and Cameron's had bitten his tail majorly off.
Of my three, I got a white cambodian female with some mild fin damage (could just be fin deformity but she's still getting treatment) and a red VT male, stunning boy and a flirt to the female, with mild fin rot and a little bit of other damage. Not too bad, these guys will be great in a week.
The last one though (off of my group's table) is in awful shape. I honestly don't know if he will survive the night. I suspect columnaris, he barely moves except to breath, floating sideways at the top of his cup (only have two hospitals, so the healthier (moving) fish got more space)
I am just so beyond pissed right now. Such cruelty. My physics teacher is in charge of StudCo...she will be getting a very angry me invading her lunch time.
