This is why I love working at the pet store I do. It's very small, family-owned and run.... I'm freaking best friends with the owners, lol. And they do their research on everything and everyone that comes in through the doors. (Not the humans... the animals, lol.)
We had baby bearded dragons that started nipping on each others tails... found out we weren't feeding them often enough, so we started to do so.
If fish get sick, we isolate them in a QT tank we have in the back, and medicate them until they get better.
And we're surrounded by people who are so in love with fish... yes, we do get a dimwit or two who doesn't listen, but we still give them the information.
And while it's not a lot (anytime I'm there I always do it), water changes are basically done every two days for the bettas, always on Saturdays since we're closed on Sunday.
Edit: The best thing is that I get to learn how to take care of each animal.... I'm still definitely not an expert on all the different types of fish, but when anyone asks me about bettas, thanks to this site I'm a great source.
I highly doubt your roomate will be willing to listen unless someone she doesn't know seriously educates her... like people on this site, maybe?
I wonder if showing this to her, she'll be curious about it and look around. I don't know your roomate though, so... >>; yeah.
