Angry My cousin got a betta... he's two.

He picked out a white girl with very light pink fins that make her appear to be Cambodian, almost.
She's been named Flower, for now. But, he's two years old, so it won't last long.

I feel horrible, and I know that his mom either won't want to take care of her or will take her to their house and let her die, most likely.
I already have 3 boys in my ten gallon, but I don't want to have to watch the girl live in a tiny, dirty vase while they are in the tank.

I have two dividers form the store in the tank, but one is clouded and opaque. The other is clear and still usable.

I need ideas for a divider that will run the length of the tank to make it into four sections. I would like to use the remaining divider as the division from front to back, but if it can not be used with a DIY divider, I will be open to making a four way instead.

Any ideas on a DIY 4-way divider for my ten gallon?

I would never give a fish to a child. Kids get tired with pets easily and don't know how to maintain them. My boyfriends neice put coca-cola in the fish tank cause she thought the fish was thirsty 0.o

I don't understand why parents would buy their young children fish and expect them to take care of the fish by themselves. o.o I hope the female is well taken care of....

you could take her one day when you know they've stopped checking on her. they might not notice till days later and just wonder where it disappeared to. XD
If they ask about your "similar" betta you could say you just picked it up at a shop and call it by a different name. =P

Edit: then again I don't think I'd have the heart to do something like that. =P
