ugh my teacher made us use live fish in lab today...

We had to use live goldfish in my biology lab
We had to put them in a graduated cylinder to measure their volume and then into a beaker filled with "culture solution" for 15 minutes to measure their respiration...
I feel so bad for them

Poor little things. That's equivalent to using a live dog or cat in a lab. How cruel.

I just know that they're SO stressed out its awful. Especially when you have the other people in the class who have no respect for fish and aren't careful with them at all.

Yeah it's not that bad. If it was a dog I would probably end up hurting someone lol.

I thought about saying something but she did make comments to the people that were being careless with them and made sure no one was letting them sit out of water or anything...
I just felt that it was unnecessary.

I setup a tank for my class so other students could gain respect for fish.
