College Students and Bettas

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to share this story with people who would understand how happy it made me. So, I recently got a nice little crowntail boy who's living in a 6.6 gallon tank in my dorm. Would have loved a goldfish, but a betta was really the best choice possible. I made the mistake of letting my friends name him, so he's been christened Honey Boo Boo. :roll: I bought Boo at a Petco the day before I came to college, so I showed up to my dorm on the first day toting him in one of those little death trap cups. The students working the check-in were immediately like "fish! He's cute!" And then immediately proceeded to tell me that the cup could, under no circumstances, make a good home for a betta. I reassured them that his tank was going to be set up momentarily. Later, when I was in the process of doing just that, another staffer poked her head in the open door and made sure that his silk plants weren't plastic that could hurt his fins.

Needless to say, I was a very happy fish lover! It's nice to meet people who really care. Just wanted to share the experience.

I had a few people ask if my ryukin Kai was going to be living in the kritter keeper he traveled to school in, after they saw the 20 gal in my backseat they were reassured however! :rofl I take every opportunity to educate my friends and others about betta and general fish care, I've found a lot of students don't mind helpful advice, college is a place to learn afterall!

Thats fantastic! When my class got a goldfish (in a bowl :krazy:) they all just stared at it and tapped the glass. Until someone idiot, I mean person, put Germ-X in the water. :no:
