"some people ... you just can't reach .. which is the way he wants it... well he gets it.... and i don't like it any more than you men." most apt quote i could think of.

dealing with family that has bad fish keeping practices and habbits is a pain. no good solution. may i suggest using clove oil and euthenizing both fish to save future imprper care. just dose the whole tank when they aren't looking and claim they were both floating belly up. then when your parents go to replace it tell them that owner was responcible for fishes death and will just kill the next one too so don't get another cuz you won't help keep it any more.

easiet way to get rid of any fish is flush it but that is horrible cruel.
best way to euthenize fish is clove oil and a kitchen knife seperate head and body. but it is not easy to bring your self to do.

ps family consists of those whome your born to and those you chose.

Thats just sick TBH,are you sure that you would like that kind of person as a friend??
If you have room at home I'd take the Betta and have a quiet word with her parents later.If you cant take it home still have a quiet word with them.
