Well, the fish killer has struck again. Brahms died. But I have NO idea why. He seemed okay except for minor fin rot. But last night he suddenly decided he didn't want his food and this morning I found him dead. Now I'm paranoid about my other fish...

I understand the feeling. I lost 5 bettas between December and May. And I have a sister that has had a betta sitting in an almost empty unheated 2G tank for over a year. I tried giving her advice over the winter about the need for a heater but she didn't want to hear it... and since then I had 5 of my own bettas die on me - most due to unexplained/sudden illnesses. She hasn't said anything but I wonder if she thinks that what she's doing is fine since I'm the one that lost bettas. And the one she had before her current one lasted about 2 years - in the same set up. sigh.

my oldest betta I bought a year ago so he's between 1 1/2-2 years old I'm guessing. If something were to happen to him in the next couple years i would be so mad at myself that i can't keep a betta in a heated/filtered/planted tank longer than my sister who doesn't even care about her fish!

My bettas: 6 boys and 8 sorority girls
Making it my mission to have all natural planted tanks!
