+1 above all I can say is that the betta NEEDS the water changed, how often depends on the size of the tank
here's the water changing recommendations according to tank size:
or he can die either from a disease or ammonia burn. It's important you educate your parents about this, and you show you are responsible for your pet. If your parents do not let you in spite of you showing them it is a MUST.
That pets are a responsibility and must be cared for as you are providing them an artificial enviroment, if it doesn't work then it saddens me to say that then the best course of action is that you give the betta to someone who CAN care for it.
