She is not mentally disturbed. She is denying her negligence. I agree with aokashi but if she complains about her fish dying again, I would try to give her some stern advice and tell her if she wants them to live this is how you do it...

If a 26 year old person thinks a DEAD FISH is SLEEPING, then yeah, there is something seriously wrong with her upstairs.

I agree with DoctorWhoLuver. The cousin doesn't strike me as someone who is mentally ill. She strikes me as someone who always thinks she is right and everyone else is wrong.

If the fish die, it's because they weren't hardy enough to survive and will be replaced with a fish that are hardy. If you have a bigger set up with more supplies (i.e. heaters, filter, thermometer) than her set up, it's because you are spoiling the fish. If you do more water changes and gravel syphoning/sand cleaning, you are being paranoid and need to stop hovering over your tank. If you tell her that what she is doing is wrong, then you are an arrogant know-it-all trying to backseat drive her pet care.

I don't waste my advice on that type of person. DX

that's such a sad case of fish care on your relative's part. i dont think she'll change her ways given her history of goldies and bettas. if she calls for help for the fish id just say to give up fish keeping. i have nothing against fishkeepers but those who deny such tank conditions and still think they're doing just perfectly should.nt have any.

In my country there isn't much regard to how animals are treated. Unless they are disturbing the peace, I doubt they can be reported.
