that is fantastic Kim, you are a super kind young lady.

rather than asking your teacher for him you could always say that he died and just not take him back. :)

good luck in getting to keep him, i know he would be MUCH better off because i have read all of your post about him and your teacher.

I agree with Steve. You COULD just tell the teacher that he died.

I thought of that, but I am supposed to be the one who knows about fish. If I "kill" the fish that lived for much longer in her care then she will likely not believe me again and just get more fish to treat in the same way .

UPDATE: Lupin is doing great. He is still very active and his fins are showing more improvement. He has even gotten a good start on an actual bubblenest in the corner (before he was just haphazardly blowing them over the entire tank). He is also loving all the good food he is getting. I am feeding him flakes in the morning and frozen food in the afternoon (bloodworms, brine shrimp, and daphnia). I have been very careful though to not overfeed him on rich foods, but so far so good . He gobbles everything up and is looking really healthy. I'll post more pics when his fin regrowth is more evident.

I did realize however, that my teacher's e-mail address goes to her computer at school. So, she won't likely get it for a while, but I am still going to try. I'm also going to gush a lot about how much I love him when I get back to school. Maybe I'll get lucky due to her stinginess and lack of caring about him .

You're right, Kim. Its best to be truthful. They might think that you don't know as much about fish as you say you do and, like you said, won't believe you.

Your teacher might decide, like my neighbor, that the fish isn't worth "fooling with" and let you keep him.

i dont blame you at all for not wanting to tell the teacher that he died, thats being dishonest and will always come back on you in the end. hopefully she will go ahead and give him to you, maybe you could offer to buy him from her.

the only thing that scares me about the great care he is getting right now is if she dont let you keep him and when he goes back in the classroom, he might not eat anything and get so stressed that he would die.

keep up the good work and we will keep our fingers crossed that she will go ahead and do the right thing and let you keep him.
