Update on betta rescue

If you have been on this forum for awhile you would know that there was a huge project at my school where bettas were forced to live with 2 goldfish and some random other creatures in a 2 liter bottle for a couple of months. No water changes either. Well anyway I had to do something about it so I talked to the teacher and I was aloud to rescue any of the fish still alive at the end, and any fish that were dieing during the experiment. So I ended up with hundreds of fish all in my room (my mom wasn't too happy about that) but through the internet and word of mouth I was able to give 132 fish new, happy homes homes after they were healed. A fair share of fish did die in this experiment too tho :( anyway, I kept a couple of the fish that are too ill (or ugly ) to be rehomed, but really the rescue thing is pretty much over. Anyway, I went to the library today and I noticed two dieing bettas both in cups (after I had already bough a nice large tank for them last year and had a talk with the librarian) Their scaled were folling off and they were very skinny. the library is too cold for them also. So I am going in to school early monda morning and talking about the fish. At the least I will see if I can come in during study hall everyday and care for the fish, but I am really hoping that she will give them up to me. This is the beggining of another fish rescue! Tho not nearly as big as the last one! :) I will post pics of some of the bettas happy in their new homes as soon as I can find the memory card they are on!

I think you have done a wonderful job with the fish rescue! I hope the librarian will end up letting you have the other two.

That sounds borderline illegal to me. Fish aren't animals and don't apply to cruelty laws? What a load of crap...

Good job with the rescue. At least someone at your school has a heart.

I would have gone to the principal.

lol!! I know you'll definitely speak out! I can understand doing experiments that aren't going to cause harm but something that will harm or kill the fish is just ridiculous!
