Angry Algae wafers are not pellets...rant.

So, I go home on the weekends a lot. (I'm in college and live in an apartment). 2 weeks ago, my roommates wayyy overfed my betta flakes. So this week, I told them to give them 2 pellets twice a day. I even took the flakes and put them away. When I got back last night, I found my water cloudy with green mush all over the bottom. Instead of feeding pellets, they fed them algae wafers. 2 a day, twice a day for 3 days. So my fish weren't fed, 2 of my snails were wayyy overfed, my water was disgusting, and half of my algae wafers are gone. That's lovely. I didn't have time to clean all the tanks that night, so I put them in their water change cups, and floated them all night so they'd still be warm. Then cleaning the tanks was a nightmare. they smelled horrible.

So there's my rant. All the fish are fine, I'm just angry.

Ugh, that sucks. Maybe next time you leave for short (one week or less) trips, you could just leave your bettas be, after all, healthy bettas can go a month or so without food (though it's not recommended).

I go home most weekends though. I'm ok with leaving them for a few days, but not a few days every week. I told her the mistake though. So, next time it should be fine.

Oh no! Didn't they notice that the package said algae wafers? How could they possibly think a betta could eat that much?
At least everyones fine.
