Well this is a first for me. I've never had someone gift me an animal without a thought. Well to be truthful it was given to my daughter who is only 21 months old. "I bought this for you Eva, here go give to your mom, she will help you care for it." Exactly those words..... She then goes on telling me that she bought it for my bfs brother's wife birthday. But thought Eva would enjoy a fish. I do not know how to Care for a beta fish well. My mom is the fish person... so I took him out of his tiny container and put him in a slightly larger container. Ugh. Who gifts someone a pet without consulting them first?
