I have a story to tell and I am very sad that it even happens. ****I was at a friends house and I was watching his brother play a video game for a little while. ****As I looked around the room, something caught my eye. ****I asked my friends brother about it. ****It was like a miniature ecosystem. ****It was made of ****two, 2 liter soda bottles. ****It was kind of divided into two sections. ****On the top was a plant that was growing. ****On the bottom was a water section. ****The water was feeding the plant. ****I thought that it was really cool until I looked closer. ****There was a fish in the water! Really, it was only about 3 1/2 cups of water! ****
I thought I would just share this with you all. ****Does anyone else have a story like this that they would like to share?
This was most likely a betta in the bowl. This is not real uncommon. The fish although would benefit from more space is not unnatural in a space that size. The sad part is many think the roots are enough food for the betta when in reality their diet does need to be supplimented. As long as regular water changes are done the fish should be OK.
