I can't believe that all the fish dying wouldn't teach them a lesson... I'd float a larger tank in the 5 gallon for rose, at least a 1/2 gallon or maybe a one gallon. If anything, a deli might give you a free 32 ounce cup (1/4 gallon) which isn't huge but it is bigger than the cup they usually come in.

I didn't mean that killing the fish would teach them a lesson, I just meant that the Betta wold have more space, and the danios and stuff would be off her hands.

Well yeah, but they will not live long in those conditions so you think they WOULD learn, right? It is so angering >:/

Yes. If Little leaf cannot convince her parents to let her do what she wants with the fish, they will certainly die. :(

I personally would wash my hands of this situation. Tell my parents that if they are unwilling to listen to reason/get a larger tank/separate tanks for the bettas that I no longer wish to care for them and that cleaning the carcasses out is their responsibility, not mine since they insist on purchasing more.

I'm sorry Little Leaf, but this looks like a no one situation for everyone that is just going to burn money.

I agree with Zoetrooper this is going nowhere unless YOU do something about it. Your parents are wasting there money and you and those fish are suffering because of it.

I'm coming in late here, but WHY do your parents even want these fish? Do they enjoy the fighting?
