I thought you lived in NYC? Seems like you moved tho and sorry you lost some fish. But glad everyone else is good. Word of warning about potential over feeding in some bettas it can lead to negative consequences which I'll post about when I'm ready.
You sure have quite a gang for a dorm situation that's awesome. What school are you in? I was headed to Cornell for the same program you're in when I lost my father unexpectedly and had to go to work instead. I eventually went to Columbia on a scholarship for Biology/Life Sciences. My big brother said I reminded him of one of those nerds with a propeller on her head running around with a butterfly net 🤪
