I've been contemplating this scenario for the past few weeks, and realized I could really benefit from some friendly advice from fellow betta lovers on here.
Here's the deal:
My boss recently aquired a beautiful male super-delta several week ago. He currently resides on her office desk. He was given to her as a gift--so I assume she is a betta newbie? He is currently housed in a Marina half gallon "zen cube" with no heater, and very, very few water changes. Space is an issue for my boss--as he is on an office desk. I'm guessing she couldn't get any larger than a 3 gallon tank? I feel bad about poor Sebastian. My boss loves him to death--she really does--but doesn't seem aware of proper betta care requirements. (My job is in no way affiliated with pet care. I work at Kohl's clothing store, by the way, lol). What I want to know is: how can I politely, respectfully and tactfully bring up the subject with her about possibly upgrading his tank/heater/care routine with-out coming off as a know-it-all buttinski? Or compromise my job? I feel that as an informed betta owner/lover that it's my responsibility to inform her, but do not want to over-step my bounds, and broach something that is not my business--but at the same time, I really want to share my experience.
Any ideas or suggestions? Would love to hear your thoughts!
