Hmmm the shade garden is currently dominated by hosta, lily of the valley (and poison ivy). I'll look into those.
Besides your temperature being too low... Where are you hiding all these fish from your land lord? And when are you moving out, so you could provide them with better homes?

Oh one last post then :) I'll be moving out in one year, after I graduate. when I earn some money I'm going to put all my experimentation and the thigs I've learn in its process in a much larger tank. Jar is in my room on the table Land lord can't come into my room as it is locked when Im out and I have the only key. I was silly and kept the betta in the living room, and when he walked in he wasn't very pleased about it. Being where the heating was the living room had a stable temperature at around 80F, whereas the temperature in my room fluctuates greatly. I didn't have the money for two heaters and two new tanks so I adopted them out.

It's one thing to be ignorant, it's an entirely different thing to be stubborn at the detriment of living animals.

I'm glad you're at least considering letting these fish live in proper conditions, and I hope you can do it sooner rather than later. It saddens me that your stance is to wait for your fish to die before you reconsider. Why not give them better care before it comes to that?

I would still strongly recommend you to at least rehome the oto and the cory, if you're still insisting on going with the setup you have. Obviously they're not going to breed if you only have one of each, so your comment about breeding a new species is already pretty ridiculous. These fish are going to be really stressed out until you either rehome them or they die, that's the harsh reality of it.

I hope for your fishes sake you decide to do the right thing by them, they are live animals, and you are treating them like toys, you are killing them slowly, they will die a long and painful death, no animal deserves that and I feel very sorry for your poor fish.Don't mean to be rude, just truthful.
