why be sad about Cup passing? we've had a long, wonderful journey together, full of surprises and fun. i was looking for pics of Remy and King Steve to show the good and bad of walmart, and i came across the last pic i ever took of Cup. it showed off how much his colors have changed in the year i had him. while i miss Cup, i know he wouldn't want me to be sad about his passing. so, i'm gonna share with you all the pics i have of Cup, from the first one, to the last one.
the first pic i ever took of Cup. he's not anything special, is he? just a generic green/blue and red betta. who knew that this beautiful boy, would bring me so much happiness and frustration?!
he changed colors on me! and, you can see how much his fins have grown, as well as the crinkled dorsal(from too much flaring and ripping!) my beautiful boy, is a middle-aged man here.
after his fight with the plastic plant. you can see how ripped up his fins were. and, look at his ventril! his long, beautiful ventril, is ripped in half!
that, brings us to the last pic i ever took of beautiful Cup...
that CAN'T be the same fish from the first pic! those colors are totally different! sure, it's not the best pic in the world, but it shows his colors really well. my beautiful old man... would you have changed more, if you'd stayed with me longer? or, were you on your last leg anyways, and the bloat finished nature's job? i'll never now. i miss you, Cup. thanks for being in my life. i'm glad i picked you up, and i'm sorry you had to put up with an owner who was still learning about bettas. thanks for teaching me so much about fin care. <3
