Today, my dad decided to clean my 20 gallon fish tank. I had 6 fish. One of them was called a transparent fish, clear with a bright orange tail, which was my favorite. My dad didn't see it, and dumped the water out along with it. FML

There are no fish called "transparent fish". There are glass fish, which are not completely transparent and if you're seeing it with a bright orange tail, it was probably dyed.
Either way, your father shouldn't be cleaning your fish tank by "dumping" it out, which would be stressful to the fish and harmful to the tank's bacteria colonies. He should have been using a siphon which, when used correctly in the gravel, will not suck up fish. YDI for probably making all this up.

And BTW, for all who are arguing, there are hundreds of published books and reports that use the term "fishes" as a plural for "fish". It can indeed work both ways.
