Not really sure where to put this as it's not exactly ABOUT my betta, but definitely concern's his health.
Okay, so I'm home for the home for the holidays. My grandmother is staying with us and shares a room with me. Not to big of a deal.
But when she realized I had a fish, she would not leave him alone. She would bang on the glass and scream at the tank, trying to get him to come out of hiding because she wanted 'to see the pretty fish'. I repeatedly told her to stop, that he was sick (was still recovering from finrot), and that she was stressing him out more. She wouldn't listen and continued to pester him. He took a couple chunks out of his tail due to this and ended up looking a lot more ragged then he could have.
She finally grew bored of him and he was able to recover, though isn't looking so pretty right now.
Then I went to do his water change today. Well, when she first came here, I told her the bucket by the tank is for water changes only. I told her that she couldn't use it as it would endanger Dynamo's health. She told me she knew and that she wouldn't use it. I grabbed the bucket and to my dismay there were two wet, soapy wash clothes in it.
I've tried talking to her and that hasn't seemed to work. Does anyone have any idea how I can get her to ACTUALLY listen to me? I don't want her to do anything else that could hurt him.
