Unhappy Things don't seem to be well!

Well as most of you know, I recently moved into a room I'm renting from a couple, so I only kept my 10 gallon thatg I split between my 5 favourite boys: Roald Dahl, Joachim, Renard, Corona, and my new boy. I haven't had time to move them into the room yet, so it's still in my old room at my aunt;s house. I pop in a few times a week to feed them and check on them.

I didn't make two of the dividers wide enough, and Corona would swim through the dividers, so I cupped Joachim and Renard temporarily since I wouldn't be able to check on them 24/7. Better to be in a cramped space than torn to shreds!

Last time i visited them was Sunday, and I just went to seem them briefly today between my painting class, and Joachim was dead in his cup! I'm heartbroken. He had such a personality, and I loved the way he looked-he had such pretty emerald greens in him, I was planning on breeding him to Lani whenever I had the opportunity... I imagine their fry would be such a pretty green.

And Renard (I released him into the area that Joachim was in and put a bigger divider isn't looking so well either...His fins are a little torn and he seems pale. My new boy seems to spend most of his time in his plant, too (though I did come to check on them when they were sleeping).

I really hope they're okay. Renard is my baby, I really hope he'll be okay. So now I'm really worried for my boys...I didn't have time to clean the whole tank, but I did a 50% WC.

Crossing my fingers that they're okay...

Phew...sorry this turned out to be so long. I feel terrible that Joachim died while I was away. I wish I could have helped him...RIP Joachim.

I'm so sorry about Joachim!! He was so pretty. I think you were right to put them in the cups rather than have them get to each other and kill each other. I hope your others will be ok.

Thanks, that does make me feel better. I guess I'll just remove one of the dividers and split it between my 4 boys rather than getting a new betta. It was a bit cramped with 5 dividers in there.
