It's good that you wouldn't let it upset you, but I don't think feeling insulted for it would be overreacting. It actually is insulting, in my opinion. If you can't be straight forward enough to either talk to them about it in a friendly manner, or suggest some tips of a forum... then you should just let it go. An anonmous fact sheet is like "hey dope! since you can't take care of a 2" fish, and I don't want to get in trouble for telling you how, here... read up! you don't know it's from me, so no problems, right?"
That's how it could come across for a lot of people. Slipping things to them anonymously represents embarassment, either an anonymous love letter, or an anonymous "take care of your freak'n fish" sheet. And if someone felt the only way to give me advise was in secret, it would upset me.
I still say suggesting the forum and casual conversation is the best option, and if you can let them know what's considered ideal for betta care in a friendl conversation that would be great too... but don't do anything secret or sneaky, because some people may find it to be sill... most people find it to come across as telling your boss she's unapproachable (having been in management and teaching, that was the last thing in the world someone in authority would want)
