I am in a class in school that currently has 10 gallon tanks about half way full. There is 2 plastic tubs fastened to the top of each tank, about 3 inches across, 3 inches tall, and 6 inches long. The bottom of each has 2 holes and is covered by cotton balls. Upon the cotton balls is clay pellets with seeds growing in them. There is a pump (not a filter) which pumps water into these tubs. In each of these tanks there was about 6 comet goldfish. 6 goldfish in about 5 gallons of water!! When they are fed every day, a bunch of tropical flakes are carelessly dumped in there. The water is disgusting because there is no filter and the pump is very weak. There is no water changes. During spring break, these fish got fed absolutely nothing. 9 days with no food. I've tried to say something about it to my group of 5 people who "cares for" one of the tanks. I am disliked by them for refusing to do any work on this project (I don't want to care about these fish because I know I can't help, so I just try to avoid them), so they won't listen to what I say. They have been in these tanks for about a month now and many of them have died. At the end of the school year (May 20th, 40 days from this post), one person in each group/tank owners will get to take the fish and tank. Is there anything I can do? I don't want to let them be taken by someone who is going to condemn them to a miserable life in a 10 gallon, uncleaned, unfiltered tank.
