Thanks! I really think those poor fish who get shoved to the back of the shelf deserve a nice, warm home and even if they don't make it at least their last few days/weeks will be comfortable.

I agree. That reminds me of this animal shelter that takes in old and unwanted animals. They live out the rest of their lives on a farm. So even if they don't survive, it means sooo much that you were there to make the end comfortable.

Exactly, that's all I want to do for those poor fish. They just stock wayyyy to many bettas at my local Petco, it's just sad.

Actually a lot of people rescue petstore bettas and pay shipping. I've adopted 2 pet store rescues in the past and I've rescued and adopted out 4 myself.. none locally.

As for your heating situation putting them in a tub with a heater will work fine, just make sure you get a thermometer reading of each tank to make sure they are heated evenly.

Yeah, I will definitely check the temperatures of all the tanks, make sure they all stay stable and warm. Thanks! I hope I can save a few and give them to good homes.
