Next time you go in there, apologize to her for being "rude", and explain to her how attached you are to your own pet fish. Then give her a "gift". Give her a 1-2 gallon container to put her fish in, and then make sure to BRAG on her betta. Tell her it has beautiful colors or veiltails are your favorite or something. Then offer to set the fish up in his new home for her and continue to brag on her fish/make amends with the woman.
If she accepts your offer, the fish will be in a better home and you can brag on the fish and give her care tips whenever you go in there :)
Most people will not reject a free gift, an apology, or compliments :)
Do this! It is near Christmas, so you could possibly gift her.
