I'm thinking of volunteering at one of my local shelters. Hopefully this will give me some experience and show my parents how responsible I can be :)

Would you guys recommend a full on restarting the tank or just a bunch of water changes and scrubbing equipment that sort of thing?

@PetMania That's awesome! I hope it will prove your responsible to your parents!

That way I can satisfy my pet needs and learn at the same time until I can get a bunny, lol.

@bettasareawesome, I would recommend scrubbing and a lot of cleaning first, but if it doesn't get better, then maybe a new set-up would be best.

I'm agonizing over getting a third betta. I'm also agonizing over the fact that he would be in a one gallon bowl on my desk, even if it is going to have live plants and would be getting WC's at least 3x a week. Considering it would be a Petco betta, I know that's better than what it's in right now, but seriously... all the agonizing is giving me a ridiculous headache. :(

I just keep dreaming about red veiltails... AUGH. And I have no motivation to do anything but fish related activities! DOUBLE AUGH. HELP.
