Put fast growing plants in there. The kinds that grow fast need alot of nutrients to do so and because of that they suck up ammonia and nitrates at a high rate. Floating plants are really good at this.

Okay, thanks for the advice on plants.

Drift: What kind of market did you go to? And did they come with lids? I have a Michaels and Hobby Lobby, those are the only places I could imagine having something like that...

I guess it would be considered a flea market? We just call them Markets around here. XD Yes some of them do have lids.

Umm... I would petition that "project". It's careless and cruel to do that to living animals.

Biologie is a good subject, but I don't understand y we have to disect animals to learn about things.

Sorry I can't help u, but I hope ur project will do good this time.
Catholic school is way different, I know...I go to one. We had to disect starfish and frogs btu when we got to genectics I rocked it because of my knowledge of bettas :)

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Or you can put the fish in a tank and then put them in a jar the day you take them to school (if you have to).

That's a good idea, but I think the teacher will be supplying the fish since he has a 50+ gallon tank full of endless livebearers. Thanks for the ideas everyone, I'll post the specifics tomorrrow!
