That's so sad :( I think my friends vase is around 2 gallons, at least she doesn't have 3 goldfish in it. And it's not like it's gonna kill her to buy him a proper set up. If your gonna buy a pet, whether its a dog or a fish, you need to be able to provide proper care. Period.

I can't believe that she was given a $1000 and still won't buy the poor goldfish a better home, in situations like these it is a matter of your friends priorities, not of being unable to afford a better tank.......

I agree...and she doesn't have any thing she wants to spend the money on I suggested she buy a big fish tank but she said no. Whenever I suggest something like that she just says,"he's fine, he has been living in the vase for a few months". A person can live in a closet for a few months and still be "fine"

I don't know if this will help, since I wrote it about bettas, but you may find some inspiration in it: 10 things I hear about bettas. :)

My goodness, Yahoo! Answers was the absolute worst for people talking about how they needed suckerfish. I'm much happier now that I don't visit it any more. :p
