A cousin of mine was going to flush her daughter's betta because the daughter wouldn't take care of it. Luckily, they asked me to take it before they flushed it. Flushing iis an easy way to get rid of fish for people too lazy to find them a proper home!

They were going to flush him but they decided to ask me if I wanted him before they did it.

Veganchick - have you considered contacting PETA? Humane Society?

Those organizations exist for situations such as this, and i suspect, especially in the case of PETA, that they would not only help you with your crusade but get involved personally if your school intends on doing the same thing again next year.

Humane society already knows about it- I work with there dogs and cats alot, so I told them about the fish stuff.... Anyway, I have a plan I am working on to stop this from happening this year. Oh, but I did buy some 1g vases for my librarians bettas today (I know 1g is tiny..... but I really can't afford to keep buying all this stuff, and I still had to buy medicine and suff for them) plus 1g is WAAAAAY larger than a cup! I bought vases instead of tanks also cuz my librarian really like the looks of vases and cups, but not really bowls and tanks. I will be going into the library every other day to change the fishes water(exept weekends), so I really hope this helps!!!! :)
