Yeah, my grandma knows now that it's not too good. I have now divided them so one betta is on one side, and the barbs are on the other. My grandma won't let me return them. She won't bring me there. Asd of now, they only have half of the tank. Luckily they are only babies and are about an inch long, hopefully I'll find a way to do something.

My grandma says "it's not right to bring live fish back to the store." I secretly called the store and they said they might take the barbs back but I wouldn't get any money back. I'm not telling my grandma I called them. She won't bring me there anyway. Ugg, I feel sorry for berry in the 1 gallon, and the tiger barbs. They are in only a 5 gallon space. Looks like that's where they are staying too.

Can you get someone to take you there? If they won't give you your money back, they'll probably give you store credit.

Nope, no one. My grandma says it's not right, and my grandpa follows what my grandma says, so I'm pretty much stuck with them.

barbs

you could try and make your grandmother buy you a 20 gallon long for the barbs. also, i have used a 2 liter bottle with the top cut off and placed a little of bit java moss for a betta in an emergency situation. barbs love room to swim.

Your Grandma has a rather closed minded view and is probably firm in it. I would explain to her that your tank is too small for the fish she brought you and they will end up stressed to death in time. They need room to swim that 5 gallons does not offer.

If she is not willing to take you to exchange the fish,maybe she will understand that that small of tank means much shorter life span and will get you a 20 long to put them in :)

Yeah I live with my grandparents too and they also do weird things sometimes. Buying you too many of a noncompatable fish and not letting you return them is weird though- I think you should take them back anyway and just say they were sick. The crowding would likely make them sick anyhow.
