I can't Take It! That Betta's Going To Die!

My music teacher has a betta fish named Maestro Adante. He is in a vase with a plant. end of story... He never swims, he barely breaths. The plant takes up his only swimming space, and he's been like this for 2 years. I am about ready to snap. I am going to e-mail her about the fish, and see what I can do. Any advice?

Kim's thread was very similar to this. You may want to do a search for it.

Good luck.

I read her forum, and then what luck! I'm going to hope and pray for the same outcome.

Good luck! The key is to make sure the teacher still likes you. Don't be a jerk about it. Remember, they are teachers and teachers seem to have a complex a lot of the time about being told what is correct by a student! If you get her mad there is no way that you will get through to her. For a while I didn't think my teacher would ever come around because she continually blew me off by lying to me. So, because it was so depressing of a situation I just sat there and stared at the wall with absolutely no emotion whatsoever. I only spoke when spoken to (boring classmates in there anyway) and robotically when about my work (not that I don't do that in most of my classes anyway lol). I think she finally figured it out, and when she approached me to take him home and buy him a suitable house I made sure I perked up and acted happier. Sometimes body language works better than words, especially with stubborn people.

Good luck!

If you're on Christmas break she probably doesn't have access to her computer at school. Hopefully it's that and not that she's blowing you off!
