Should not be allowed

I just found out that in my dorm I am moving into in a month does not allow fish tanks. The one I have is only three gallons and only has one female betta. I cant believe I will have to give it away.

Oh, no!! I'm so sorry!! I think most colleges allow you to have a certain amount of gallons.

I'm sorry to hear this! But like DQ said most colleges do allow fish tanks up to a certain gallon. This really bites!

Thats horrible! :[ I would call the housing department of your college and talk to them. Maybe if you agree to sign something of some sort (like an agreement contract or something) you could take her with you. I mean really, how much damage can a small fish tank cause lol. Usually colleges let you have tanks... Mine lets you have anything under 10 gallons.

They might say no if you ask, but its worth a shot! (And not everyone follows the rules... I have a friend that brought their rabbit and was never caught lol)

I had hamsters and was never caught. Some people even had a cat and never got caught.

I still think you should be able to talk to them. they should have some sort of gallon limit.

hmmm if you ask admin about bringing your fish and they say no you wont be able to sneak the fish in since they'll probably be keeping tabs on you after that but if you just sneak the fish in they might never know!

I'd talk to housing and get them to reconsider.

The max number of gallons in my dorm is 5 gallons (and they're uber stingy about it!!), so 3 gallons shouldn't be a problem!! :)
