Basically, one of my teachers has a betta fish in her class. His bowl is probably 0.5 gallons if even that, of course with no heater or filter.
This fish looks near death. She said he hasn’t come out from behind a small dragon statue for 2 days (he’s alive, though, I know that). It’s very cold in this room, probably around 67 degrees every day.
She’s teaching marine ecology. In this class we’re going to be building tanks for fish.
Since I know a lot about bettas I was considering asking her if she’d let me do a 5 gallon tank for this fish instead of a 50 gallon with a lot of other students with new fish we buy later in the school year. 10 would be better but 5 already is pushing. There’s a chance the school could cover it, but I’m not sure.
I have an empty 10 gallon with heater and filter I was planning to fill with plants and get cycling, but maybe I could give my filter to her (i need a new one anyway), discuss a plan, then construct it. This is assuming she’d even let me do it. She may get offended or mad.
What should I do? Should I mention to her he might be freezing and that he needs a heater then try to push for a new tank? How would you guys handle this? Since she’s a marine ecology teacher I’m afraid she’ll write me off and let him die, then treat me poorly for the rest of my year.
How do I tell someone that their animal is in poor living conditions, especially someone that is your teacher? How do I go about offering help?
more trash from the street rats au. as in a shitty unedited and mostly unexplained comic i scribbled down as soon as i woke up with no references, so sorry in advance lmao. like its uglie but im posting it anyway.
Rewatched the promo again because I have no shame and it got me wondering how long were Kat and Adena on the phone?! Like Kat looks too comfortable on that couch to only be on the phone for a few minutes
lol that awkward moment when you’re trying to write a fic so you go read fic for inspiration and then you have that realization that nothing will ever hold a candle to the Masterpiece that you just read so you just. don’t.
