May need to evacuate

There have been several forest fires reported in the vicinity of where I live. One of them dangerously close to town. I guess I better prepare in case I need to transport Fishy. The only thing I have to take her in is her 1/2 gallon tank with no heater, no filter, nothing. (her cup got a crack in it) Yikes!!!

You can use a few strips of duct tape on the crack (inside and out) and it'll be like new. (unless you tossed it already.)

got two baggies and an elastic? Scoop Fishy into the first baggie, allowing half air half water and close the bag. set into the second bag, gently wind the top and use the elastic to firmly keep it shut. :) Better to transport her.

I already tossed it, it was pretty bad with a few jaggedy edges. I supposed I could use a tupperware with holes in the top of the lid, still no way to keep her heated though. And wouldn't you know it, I just went out to the car and apparently somewhere today I picked up a nail, so now I've got a flat. Ugh. Hopefully they can get the fire out and we don't have to evacuate.

not if you use it on the outside. Not to be rude, but if you have nothing nice or helpful to offer, please take your negativity elsewhere.
Thanks!


BTW< the last thing you said was very nice

I hav to agree. On the outside of the tank it would have worked fine in a "for the moment being" thing ^.^ I don't think ducttape would stick to the inside anyways I think o_O

I was not being negative and your being negative chocolate said Ductape in and out I was making sure the betta wasn't killed which is positive so I was being very positive.

...And back on topic. If you're worried about heating, you could wrap a few heat packs with towels, put them next to the betta's bags, and put them in a cooler.

Well, something weird is going on, there was another fire in the empty lot right next to my apartment building. Yikes!! It's out now, but things are getting rather suspicious.
