Honestly no use in complaining about this, I wrote an article on deviantArt about it, a lot of members here constantly complain about parents/friends/whatever saying "they're just fish" yadda yadda.
Nobody is going to change their minds about ANYTHING, even with scientific evidence (see: creationists), once it is engrained into their minds. They're especially not going to listen to younger people.
Fortunately, my parents are a little more understanding. THEY may think it is just a fish, but they know to me it is more than that. So they may not care if my betta dies, but they did comfort me when HongBo passed away.
I actually don't understand people who don't think fish are pets...I guess it's the way they are marketed...as high maintenance decorations...
