Remind them how easy they are to take care of, and show them how much you enjoy changing the water/doing all the dirty work involved in bettas. Haha.

Just show responsibility.

my parents (when I was living with them) had a big issue with my fish tanks cause they were the ones paying the electric bills and I was just getting more and more fish. In the long run they made me sell all my tanks and re-home my fish. I was heartbroken. But now that I am on my own they have nothing to say! MUUWWWAAAHAHA!
