I don't think incidents like this can be minimized and if your parents are in denial, you may want to go to someone at your school (I'm assuming you are a minor in school) and see if they can connect your family and/or brother with resources.
That is really sad, and he will likely escalate to more dangerous behaviors if he is allowed to without help.
Best of luck to you and your fish.
i know, i definitely agree.. my parents yell at him and say its wrong but they dont do anything... his temper is so bad that he threw a shovel through the storm door. he knew we were getting a new door the next day so in his mind he probably thought, well it doesnt matter if i break it anyway. but still, not normal. im a senior in college, going for teaching.
