On the topic of killing a betta.
When I first got this little boy, I was in a panic. I had bought a heater, a 2.5 gallon tank, FD bloodworms and a dechlorinater for the water. Then I came here, and I learned so much more, and then I was worried about acclimating this fish to the water, and I was really afraid he was gonna get lethargic and die.
And then I remembered last night... My friend's roommate is keeping a red VT betta in a 1/2 gallon sized bowl, isn't feeding him but like once a week, and NEVER changes his water. How is that fish still ALIVE after 4 weeks?! I wanted to kidnap it and bring it to a better home but... I don't have room for another betta...
:( But if that betta hasn't died yet then this one will DEFINITELY make it!
