Oh believe me, I agree 110%. Unfortunately, I tried to talk him into bringing it home, but he wouldn't listen to me

So having purple hair, driving a moped and being and art student makes you odd?

Sheeesh, glad you can't see my hair or my degrees.


As for the fish, yeah, you do need to talk him out of keeping it in the locker. there's too many things that can go bad.

There's many layers to my friend that make him odd, those are just some of the few that stand out to those where I live. Not meant to offend anyone.

I certainly agree with all of you guys, I just don't know what to do with this kid.

"what to do with this kid"

Dont try to control your classmate. Just tell him positive, educated advice, maybe even buy him a good book on bettas. Look, if the little fish dies, he will learn from his mistakes. He is well intentioned and as far as I can tell, pretty intelligent.

From what you can tell he sounds like he has good intentions and intelligence? im sorry but are we reading different threads, seriously what gave you the impression that a guy who keeps a betta inside a locker without heat or filtration in a half gallon tub has good intentions and intelligence?

Look, I'm not trying to "control" him, I know him better than you do and he just sometimes makes poor decisions. I've tried giving him advice but he's dead set on keeping it in his locker, except on long breaks such as winter and spring break. His birthday is coming up, so I think I'll buy him a book and maybe a few things for the fish.

He has good intentions, but doesn't always make the best decisions, so she's at least half right.

I might at least be able to convince him to keep Nicodemus downstairs in the art room, since he spends at least two hours down there during the day and there's better light (the teacher is pretty relaxed, so I think he'd be cool with it). I don't think the science room is a good choice because it's dark and drafty in there, but that might just be a personal opinion.

I actually thought tof running a one gallon tetra cube in my locker with shrimp. Not a beta. But its probably against school code and I couldn't think of a way to do it.
