Yay about the oak leaves helping! Could the lump be a bruise from his previous injuries? Does it look any different today than it did yesterday?

Do not bring a dog into that situation. Personally I say wait for a few years before getting a dog. Doesn't sound like the parents care enough - and that won't be fair to you to take care of the pets and they don't. They might, but should that be risked?

Oak leaves are a good substitute. :) good job! Keep using them for a week or so... Wean him off slowly. No need to send him into shock

Don't feel guilty. You're doing everything you can to help him. You're doing an *excellent* job of caring for him.

As for the oak leaves, it's OK. They release things into the water that are good for him -- and those things will still be in the water even after the leaves are removed.

Yes, it would be good it the leaves stayed in, because they'd release MORE of the 'good stuff,' but if they were in the water awhile, hopefully, there will be some beneficial substances in there now.

But since my parents won't help with my fish, I feel like a fish killer... I don't think I really deserve a betta or any kind of fish, really. I don't even think I'd be good with having any animal...

Your parents are fish killers. It's not your fault. I'm sorry they won't let you take care of your fish.. I wonder why? I think you deserve a fish, but maybe wait to get a pet until you're old enough to be able to take care of it on your own and not have to rely on your parents.
