I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

I know when I lose an animal I tend to go out and get a new one, not to replace the old but to get my mind off it and try to move on. If anything, I'd just go and look...you never know if you will find a special one or one who needs your help.

You are a great fish keeper, and as much as this hurts, accidents do happen. Aquarius was loved and cared for up until his end. His time had come for whatever reason and there's nothing you can do now except remember him for what he was and move on. *hug*

Going to the Betta Shop today, my mom hopes it will make me feel better but I don't know. i may or may not find another fish. I'm not hopeful for it.

*hugs* That's why I usually remove the fish. I have sucked them up before too.
I lost 23 of my fish at once when we droveout of Alaska in wintertime. The back window was open and I didn't even notice. They all froze except the sickest one (the one in my siggy), who I picked up from walmart like a week before we left and one red CT. It sucked, but there were plenty of fishies in NY that needed my love :)

I was just looking at the Betta Shop's website and it looks like they got some beautiful fish in yesterday so I hope you at least enjoy your visit. I can't believe I've never been there, it's so close to my house!

We have slim pickings at petsmart and petco here, they are all pretty much blue or red veiltails. I think the better looking fish I found were petco's baby betta has some pretty cute colors but they were also only the size of fry and already had color so i figured they were horribly stunted.

Edit: I have to admit after looking over the Betta Shops new shipments i already saw about 6 fish I really want to look at. Three were plk and one hm, also seems like they might have some nice girls for my sorority.

I brought two of the babies home, and they've grown significantly in the month that they've been with us. It never hurts to try.

So glad you are going to give it another go! When I'm in the market for a new betta I'm definitely buying it from there...good prices and I won't have to pay for shipping for a gorgeous fish :)

I am interested in seeing these fish and hope I can find someone who really speaks out to me, Bilbo still won't eat today or come out of hiding so...I'm getting worried about him.

He is gonna be okay sweetie. They can't see very well and without the water movement from his tankmate, he could be in alert mode thinking that there is a preditor in his midst. He will be okay once he gets a new friend
