Omg guys. help help help help help.
Okay, so I was just waking up from a nap when my floormates knocked on my door. I opened to see what was going on and they were like "hey, you have a fish tank right?" (I have a rescued betta in a 5 gallon) and low and behold they held up 4 feeder fish.
It took me about 30 minutes to find out they are minnows. I'm pretty sure. I compared pictures of minnows to what they look like.
I'm so stressed out right now. I don't know what to do. Don't minnows need an aerator? I don't have one @_@ Is there something I can do? Can they live with my female betta in a 5 gallon. Even just temporarily guys. Even advice for temporary solutions would be great as I can figure out what to do when my parents come to pick me up in a week from campus.
