Ok my rant for today is about a co-worker. She recently brought a betta and its been 3 weeks and she kept him in a small critter keeper size: 7.125" x 4.375" x 5.5" and only uses Poland spring bottled water and no water conditioner
I keep telling her (gently as I can) he needs to be in a larger bowl with water conditioner. Well she has been out sick the past few days and I have been caring for her betta. Which I was more than happy to do.
I have taken the liberty of putting her betta in a cookie jar just under one gallon, put a good size hole in the lid for oxygen but small enough that he cannot jump out. I added river rocks, and a plastic green plant for decorations. I change his water every other day. He loves his new home and has become so much more active.
Wish me luck in trying to convince her to spend some money and get a larger tank with a filter and heater.
