I've been gone for the holidays and I come home to find my roommates fish... that she has left here...all alone...for the past... week+? The poor thing looks like a zombie fish. it kind of scares me...
So my question is... what in the world do I do? Do I leave it alone?
I feel like I shouldn't do anything because it is her fish, not mine. In her mind he is nothing more than "just a fish." And she may even get mad at me for touching her stuff... She won't be back until the end of next week, and she is out-of-country right now, so it is difficult to contact her.
But then again I feel like it is my duty to either put him out of his misery or try to do something to save him, even though I think it is wayyy too late for him.
Reasons to believe so:
- He is in a way too overstocked tank (2 gl with a betta, 2 ADFs, and a baby mystery snail. Too much? yeah.) BTW, the snail is already dead in there.
- The water hasn't been changed since more than a week ago.
- The water temperature has got to be super cold because her room is super cold.
- She bought him already sick with fin rot and clamped fins, or something was terribly wrong with his fins.
So what do I do? Do I just leave it alone and let it take its course? Do I step in? What are you guy's opinions...
And lastly... am I being to over emotional about this whole thing...?
