Well, this is how Alaska classifies fish:

A. FISH AND GAME CODE


Alaska’s Fish and Game Code establishes the Board of Game (BOG) and the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) and charges those two agencies with regulating “game” animals throughout the state.[1] AK ST § 16.05.940 defines “game” as any species of mammal found or introduced in the state, which includes all species of captive apes.[2] Section 16.05.920 of the Fish and Game Code generally makes it illegal to buy, sell, possess, or transport any game animal except as authorized under BOG regulations.

Then you get to the part that defines "animals" for cruely laws:

C. STATE GENERAL ANTI-CRUELTY LAWS


The state’s anti-cruelty laws,[25] which prohibit the neglect or mistreatment of animals,[26]
(26) For purposes of the anti-cruelty laws, “animal” means a vertebrate living creature not a human being, but does not include fish. Alaska Stat. § 11.81.900; Alaska Stat. § 03.55.190.

So, it's not that fish wouldn't count as animals according to the definition of an animal. The law makers add, "...but does not include fish" part to exclude fish even when fish are animals in every other part of their laws. So fish are animals until someone hurts them on purpose. It's very annoying.

What it is is the lawmakers can't find a line between house pet fish and game fish. I don't see why its hard to make the distinction since bettas can't survive in the wild in the states. Kinda stupid

First, she is INSANE. Second, tell your parents, and ask to move him into your room or theirs.

The closet is a good idea except I have no plugs in my closet. I plan on upgrading him to a 2.5 gallon filtered planted tank. So there would be no place for the filter or the light.

So you're saying she's 19?

I'm pretty sure you have her age wrong, she sounds like a three year old to me.

I'm only 15, and I have more respect than she does.
