    Betta Fish Care
    So my church bought a few bettas as part of a VBS lesson, and I volunteered to take one of them off their hands at the end of the week. The poor fishies are in half-gallon, unheated, dirty bowls, and frankly they'll be lucky if they make it to the end of the week :-?. (I'm thinking of just...
