    We (myself and the other special ed teacher) are wanting to get a classroom pet. We've considered all the obvious animals, guinea pigs, rabbits, hamster, reptiles, fish, bird, and ferrets. Has anyone ever had a dog as a classroom pet? What were your experiences? Do you have any suggestions or ideas? Thanks for your help.

    I have a male betta fish that I keep in a 1-gallon bowl
    with a heater, thermometer, a plastic plant, and some
    smooth rocks. I was doing a 100% water change every week,
    but I've recently learned that I've been grossly over
    feeding him.

    Last Wednesday I noticed a white sore on his bloated
