Have you shown your parents how Dedede is swimming? Tell them that he needs to be moved back into the one gallon tank (with Epsom salt). Also show them the black spot on Rose and tell them that she is sick, and needs to be moved to a different one gallon tank. Then tell them that if they want more animals that THEY will need to care for them, not you.

What a strange thread.

First this kid's parents won't even buy her any AQ salt or heater. Now they are buying her all kinds of pets and equipment.

We only have one side of the story here folks, the side of an imaginative and overly dramatic 10 year old child.

Even if it is, don't judge. We're here to help, that's it. Don't like a thread then do not reply to it.

Also, I do know stupid parents. It does and can and will happen to probably 1/10 kids in the world at least.

Regardless of how " imaginative or overly dramatic" this may be, the bottom line is the same - TOO MANY FISH IN A 5g TANK!! It seems odd to me the parents would behave in this fashion & if they are, shame on them, but regardless of who is responsible for the set up, something needs to change. I think killing all the fish is a litte extreme . . .

My point is this may all be a story, we just don't know.

Exactly, we don't know. So do what you can.

As for the dramatic thing of euthanising, I didn't mean the two bettas IF you can separate them. You were supposed to find homes for them and you didn't. I'd rather end their misery then keep them in toxic sludge, poisoning them and killing them all in the most slow and painful way.
