got kicked out of a craft fair at my old elementary school where my mom still works and my dad had a booth set up because my dog (the one in my avi) that was laying calmly and politely at my feet behind a table was "bothering people." evidently dogs are only allowed in for short visits for show and tell.... yet there's a teacher that brings her dog to work with her on weekends and during summer vacation and it runs around the building and a police dog came in and did a demonstration inside the building... the principal had to look good in front of the parents i guess...

Wow thats dumb :S

So I went on DeviantArt today and saw this person had added me. Being the person I am, I HAD to go see their profile and see who it was. Well, I looked at their journal and apparently they had some betta babies hatch for them. BUT. If you read one of the comments, she said she bred them in this grossly small unheated thing!! Aopparently her reasoning for breeding them in there is because her mom wouldn't let her get a filter...WTF is she supposed to do when the babies get moved to a bigger tank, provided they even live that long without heat! OMFG. I'm gunna freak out on this chick if she doesn't smarten up! If you dont believe me, feel free to read the journal and the following comments...I'm gunna cry. T__T

Heres the 'tank' she used..


and here's the journal link if you want to give your own feedback as well.

Yes, Father, I KNOW you've had 'fish tanks' before I were born and that you don't like it when gravel accidentally goes into the garbage disposal. I understand that completely. What I DON'T appreciate is you whining about every single thing I do with the fish, including commenting about cleaning the tank once a week. Getting a filter, while nice, is not a good expense for me at the moment. Trying to save up for an apartment so I can get out of your place and all. No big deal. (I do HAVE one, but no media filter yet. Can't find one that fits.)
I'm sorry I care about the fish so much I want it to be happy? :> Maybe I'll just let it sit in the tank and clean it when it gets dirty and let him be unhappy, eh? >.> /scarcasm

Whew. Turns out what's been going around(and still is! Wash your hands, people!) Is a nasty gastrointestinal virus. It's been a rough week. But I'm back, and finally don't feel seasick!

However my rant is despite 'not being sick anymore' I'm still suffering from being severely lethargic after the whole ordeal. Apparently this can go on for quite some time afterwards, but hopefully I'm lucky and it ends soon, I got stuff I need to do!

Aww, purple. :( You probably got dehydrated and all after being so sick. Drink lots of fluids still. Hope you feel 100% really soon!

I truly can't believe bettas would even feel like spawning in that thing. :( And uh, crazy girl with tiny tank, they don't need a filter to spawn. o.O If any of those babies survive, I'll be amazed because I bet she doesn't have infusoria or baby brine shrimp to feed them.

I agree with Sakura. And even if you feel good enough to do something, just do a little bit at a time so you don't overdo it and make sure you get plenty of rest.

I wish my calculator would stop cutting off after a few minutes without use. It has a solar panel on the front and I'm in a lit room.

Ugh this person is bugging me soooo bad, she's been commenting on MY photos, but is failing to answer anything I've asked about hers. I knew about needing no filter to spawn, but you should have a heat source..and I thought about first foods too...Betcha she ground up some betta pellets or flakes and thinks thats ok.:evil :
