water changes are so important in small tanks, it directly influences the life and death of a betta fish. Even more important than feeding the fish.

If you left two fishes in the same size bowl.
with one fish you feed everyday but never change the water. and the other bowl you never feed the fish but change the water everyday( properly)
Which will die first? The fish who doesn't get water changes.

That is why water changes are the most important part of fish keeping. If you have trouble with it, and there's no one who will willingly help you. Then really... you are harming the fish.

it also doesnt seem possible for you to obtain a heater.. which is very important to tropical fish....

Really until you can somehow manage to heat the bowl properly and do water changes every 3 days... you will be told that you should not be keeping one, because to us, you are slowly torturing your fish to death, whether you mean to do it or not.

Sorry Littleleaf, fish are not toys...

Fish are living beings, don't take them lightly. They deserve to be in the best care possible. Remember Equinox? How do you think the store is any different than what you're treating them right now? You rescued him yes, but how is the care different?

If anyone can help me, that'd be great as well. I currently have a 1 gallon that I can put him in, but I need A LOT of help getting him through the mail since packages get sorted through the campus first.
uh... no. I'll try to find someone in my apartment because I'm not allowed to get/give mailing addresses

Well I'm asking because I have everything ncessary for him to live... it's not 100% sure you can find someone in the apartment....

I don't know if there's a way to just give me a very VAGUE address...

I can assure you 100% though that I'm not keeping the address, I tear up and throw out anything that has someones address on it from the internet.

What do you expect? We believe in NOT abusing animals therefore we really want the right thing to be done here.

If Little Leaf is actually in Canada, it's not going to be worth your time and money, Alcemistnv.

What about you Olympia? I just looked at the locations. An option but you don't have to.
