Angry my brother's tank WARNING: this images are not good for sensitive people

so i was in the middle of cleaning my fish tanks, and my little brother went into the washroom i was cleaning the tanks in -_- we have two washrooms, geez so i got some pics of HIS tank. CAUTION: "if sensitive on animals, i wouldn't suggest to see the pics" this are horrible things that people in youth could do, also am not saying all kids (under my age) are like this. i know really nice kids in this forum take well care of there betta's, fish, pets, etc. but this isn't the first time this happened to his fish, if i do get rights on his fish i would give away the poor fish (on craigslist).
CAUTION: these images are highly photo's of neglect, if you cannot stand them please leave the thread
some people in the forum didn't know how much neglect my brother could do, here is the photo's :

it is full of algea, and hasn't been cleansed for months here are the fish:

^ above is his betta, a blue combodian VT male named "Skybreaker"

^ this one is a black angel fish (i regret giving away) un-sexed named "Dusk"
here are a couple more of the betta:


he also has a flame dwarf gourami (could see it in the first pic) but i didn't get pics of it. another sad thing is that am not allowed to help i'll probably soon have the fish or so am not sure. another thing is that he dosen't care, these pics are in his room. and the gourami and betta fights (thats why there chiped or ripped) the angel fish never fought anyone besides for food, i had him a long time. my brother killed his best friend "Silver" a white angel fish, killed my glofish "Chubo" (though i never gave him chubo :( )

I know someone with a tank that looks like that and they also don't want help. People are possessive of their "things" even to the detriment of the creatures in their care.

I dont understand this, seriously, why cant you help? Your dad should be ALL OVER THAT considering he's spent so much money on his own saltwater tank. I would just go in there and do it, I wouldnt care what anyone said. This could be a matter of life and death for these fish.

Tell your parents he's neglecting his fish and tell your brother that you want your fish back. No way should that be acceptable.

If someone is treating their betta so poorly it wont survive much longer, what needs to be done is simple... if this happens, don't allow him to kill another one.

i know and styggian is totally right. i cannot help because the last time i "helped" i ended up having the betta (Oceanist) and my dad wants him to learn to have responsibility. and my dad is one of those people who thinks that betta's could live in such tiny bowls :(
and the reason i can't get my angelfish back is because i have no space. but if i do i have no choice and give Dusk (the angel fish) away. at least he/she will live happier, and so would that gourami. i'll probably keep the betta though. they know he is neglecting his fish (i talk about his fish all the time) they don't say anything -_-" and that gourami and betta fights all the time :( the angel fish is very scared and shy now. my parents know that he is neglecting but they don't really care i guess :(

Gosh, that is terrible, I think your pr=arents think if his fish die, that he will learn a lesson.

That tank looks terrible though, poor fish.
