Ideas for "laying to rest" dead betta
So, my betta died in the night. I'll get over it, but I'm wondering about how I should dispose of his body. I mean, any other betta I've had, I've just buried in the yard. Now, I live in a high rise apartment building in the middle of a city, and I don't think they'd appreciate it if I went out and started digging through what little dirt they have (plus, it's winter, and digging would be nearly impossible with a shovel, much less whatever I've got to do it). I don't really want to wait until I go home in March or April...he'd either sit rotting in his water or hanging out in the freezer. I don't think I'd like a dead fish in my freezer, and I know my roommate wouldn't. Flushing just seems so unceremonious, but it may be the only real option I have.
