Another thing that has been driving me bananas this past two weeks is my ecocolumn project in environmental science. I have to construct a sustainable habitat in a bottle, basically, consisting of a terrestrial, aquatic, and decomposition layer. The thing is, we are not allowed to interfere with the aquatic chamber (besides to take tests) for 5 weeks! Biogeochemical cycles must take care of everything. I worry sick about how my poor betta fish, Chili Trung, and nerite snail, Gizmo, as well as my aloe vera Peter, will survive. Not changing the little amount of water seems crucial. Research suggests it should be done once a month. I feel this project is unethical, and yet, it is something that applies to my future major, and can help me save animals in the future. I will probably cheat and interfere, because my moral compass wants to kill me right now. Then again, cheating is wrong too. I just can't let my animals and plants (there are other plants that I didn't name- too many tomato sprouts and moss balls) die!
