So, I buy a betta.

Then you buy a betta.

Then I find out that you never change his water.


THEN I find out you dont know about "New Tank Syndrome".

Then I happen to walk into your house to see your new fish. Dead.

Well....maybe it's because you threw water in there without water conditioner and bought them the same day you bought the tank.

So, heres the run down:

1 betta. In a .5 gallon bowl. UNCONDITIONED WATER.
16-- Oh yes, 16 black skirts, dead, in a 6 gallon. Unconditioned, no filter, a plant, and a turtle. No places to hide.

My neighbor irks me, yes they do. I want to save their betta so much, but there is no tank, and my mom wont let me.

Dont worry, I did so. All the mother did was shrug her shoulders and tell me "it's just fish". I dont know how she could say all too much to it though, she spent her money on it.
Maybe make a comparison to a giant owning a human and keeping it in a 6'x6' box with no toilet, and the giant saying "It's just a human"? Lol that's the only thing I can think of now:icon_roll

Hey, maybe you can buy them a real tank and filter and heater for a Christmas present:)
