ok so, my boyfriend has asked me to watch his betta fish for him while hes on vacation for a week with his family. (actually its his little sisters fish)
I have never owned a fish and I have no idea what to do. Some forums have scared me because a) they say that left over food at the bottom of the tank can kill the fish and b) if you do not use the light on the tank the fish will die.
my bf and his family never ever turn on the light except for feeding time only and then right after they turn it off. (his sister has a phobia of the fish burning) and I fed it last night but it refused to eat it so food is at the bottom of the tank since last night. I have no idea what to do and I'm freaking out.
I feed it 4 pellets twice a day (morning and night) (aqueon betta food)
I have two both in separate tanks
they are located on my kitchen counter where the only light they get is sunlight.
thanks for reading it is greatly appreciated
