Tell them fish are an artform! :( Thats seriously ridiculous. They should think of it like raising a kid, and when its a couple months old, take away all its blankets, clothing, and its bed...They NEED all that to thrive and grow. I wish parents would understand sometimes..

I agree that it is a bit unreasonable and doesnt really make sense. The parents should actually be encouraging you to continue with what you like and yes of course they might think things like fish keeping and other small hobbies might be a phase, but that is no reason for them to take that away.

I am sorry that this is all happening to you and hope you can convince them to stop at this.

my dad actually said "i thought you will never get them to spawn" when i got my fish to spawn :(
i lost another, it is strange only the big ones died
and also they wouldn't care, they think my stuff waste a lot of electricity and i overcrowded my room with fish stuff, and my room smells like fish. well it ain't my fault i don't have a closet or another room >.> every one believes that the fry are going to die sooner or later, so i wanted to prove them wrong :'( that i could do it, but i guess not

they threw away my 5 gallons, gave my 3 gal underwater filter to my brother, threw away the 10 gallon filter, and he was about to take my vases for spawning :( i can't stand them coming and taking things that i work hard on to recieve, i really wanted the 5 gals i worked hard for it now there throwing it away? same thing for the filter :(

I can't believe this! It's so sad to hear and I could never imagine my parents taking my fish stuff. Especially giving it to my brother. I would probably hide most of the things that I get if it came down to it. I have 3 ten gallons and a 55 gallon. And a bunch of other fish things. I can't hear of this anymore. Im sorry you have to go through things like this.

does your sorrority have a heater in it? ifso you can use old betta cups or other small plastic containers and float your fry in there to stay warm since you only have two
