I understand how you feel about it being her tank and her responsibility, however it sounds like the problem is ammonia poisoning and water changes are needed to get rid of that. I guess you could also inform your sister that he can die if the water isn't changed regularly. I use the term "drown in their own filth" to scare people into water changes, but I know it doesn't garantee anything on her part.

Adding live plants will help.

Well she doesn't have to spend money on water changes, and having live plants doesn't mean she doesn't have to do them.

I know but it still helps. Maybe you could convinve her to do the walstrad method. Tanks with this method only need monthly or less water changes.

The fact that her betta has ammonia poisoning should be enough to make her want to do a water change. I just don't understand how you could look at a dying fish and NOT think, "hmm, maybe I should do something about this."

Yeah, so do I. I'm not attacking the OP, I just wish there was a way to be able to convince her to take better care of her own fish. The fish depends on her to be healthy.
