Little Leaf and Perry - I'm not sure what you're asking us to help with....

You guys already know what the issues are: Too many fish in the tank. Male betta, female betta and 'fin nippers' all together. Etc.

I think that Little Leaf is doing the best she can with the tank. But if her parents won't let her remove any of them, or put them into another tank, then there isn't a whole lot more I can think of suggesting. Sorry....

I'm a little confused as to why your parents are adamant on shoving so many fish into this tank... The only thing you can really do is keep it clean. They will eventually learn because they will likely not live long in this circumstance..

Ya that's to-many fish, the only thing i can suggest is maybe put allot of plants in it so they cant constantly see each other. Also look around and see if you can find a free 10g or 20g, so if you can's setup another tank then you can just move the fish into a bigger tank.

I'm assuming you have tried showing your parents the comments you got here? There are some VERY experienced fish keepers on this forum that KNOW very well what they are talking about! And if King Dedede was your fish to begin with I find it very sad that your parents are shoving so many fish in his tank, he is YOUR fish, right? Why don't they get their own tank if they know everything about fish? Just an observation, I'm not trying to be rude...
