I think the only solution is to just wait until enough fish die so that it's not overcrowded. I know it sounds horrible, but I'd imagine it'd be better than fighting all day, every single day.

I am so mad at your parents. Little Leaf, this is upsetting me that your parents are treating you this way. >:( as JadeSparrow said, I would put the girl in a cup, (Perhaps the one you got her in) and float her in the tank. Even euthanization could be a choice...to end their suffering and yours. (I'm not saying all the fish, maybe a few?) it is just a suggestion.

I hope everything works out! Good luck!

I agree with the others. float her (and possibly Dedede?) in a cup in the tank until enough of the fish die. I know it seems cruel, but it's what has to happen unless you can convince your parents to let you do what you want with the fish.

EDIT: if you float her/them in cups, you MUST remember to do daily water changes for them. ammonia builds up fast, and poisoning will occur in the Bettas if daily water changes are not performed in those tiny little cups.

I do agree. Maybe the cups you got them in in plastic drinking cups, and you do have to do daily water water changes. I hope it works out.

I also hope it all works out, and I hope your parents will realize your stress. Good luck!

I don't really get what you guys are trying to say. also, the only one in the 1g is King Dedede at the moment.

your tank is heated. rose is put in plastic cup, which is floated in your tank. daily water changes are done for Rose so she doesn't get ammonia poisoning. no water changes are done for the other fish in the tank. the other fish die, you take dead fish out, do a big water change in their old tank, divide it, put rose on one side and dedede on the other.

Then the parents will probably just buy more fish.
