Next time you go in there, apologize to her for being "rude", and explain to her how attached you are to your own pet fish. Then give her a "gift". Give her a 1-2 gallon container to put her fish in, and then make sure to BRAG on her betta. Tell her it has beautiful colors or veiltails are your favorite or something. Then offer to set the fish up in his new home for her and continue to brag on her fish/make amends with the woman.

If she accepts your offer, the fish will be in a better home and you can brag on the fish and give her care tips whenever you go in there :)

Most people will not reject a free gift, an apology, or compliments :)
Do this! It is near Christmas, so you could possibly gift her.

Yes it is a really great idea, for someone with money! I am broke after all the holiday shopping. I'm a poor college kid to begin with. :(

If you have $20 you could get a 2.5 gallon (large) kritter keeper AND gravel and some decor! I always reccomend them because they're so cheap. There are also other 2.5 gallon kits you can get on amazon for $20, too. Look at this:

A 2.5 gallon fishbowl for $7! If you want you could try this. I hope something good happens to that Betta.

I think my LFS sells 2.5 gallon bowls. I love the look of bowls. I might get one in the future for a Betta. With a heater, of course!

$20 is definitely over my budget on that.. maybe the bowl.. But the lady will never buy a heater.. Well I asked my mom what she thought about me 'killing the woman with kindness' and she said the lady would probably tell me to shove that tank up my-- yeah you get it. lol I'm sorry for this fish but the lady is too much of a jerk(I'd like to use another word) for me to help. :(

LikeDiscoSuperfly -- I have no idea!! But it must've been a complete NIGHTMARE!

I once saw a chandelier type lamp with bettas inside the lightbulbs. Obviously the lights were not on and it was unplugged. Just a decoration item. It happens all the time. I just let it pass. I don't like to make a scene :/

These people don't deserve Betteas... Seriosly! Those people probably think "That Betta sure is lucky. It gets small spaces and dirty water. It could have gone to a home with a tank that was way to large and way to clean!" I don't get the myth of Bettas like dirty water...

These people assume that their Bettas don't deserve them... when in truth it's them that don't deserve Bettas.
