Unhappy Cant believe it...

I feel like the worst owner ever.
My male betta Bryan needed his bowl clean, but my dad misplaced the net. So I started pouring the water into the other bowl, thinking Bryan would simply "flow in". I was also in a bad mood (I know, no excuse) I saw him ready to go into the other bowl and because the container was filling up too quickly, he sprung out of it and landed in the drain. I screamed "no no NO!" and was desperately trying to get him out. I thought I lost him.
By miracle, I got him out of the drain and put him in the separate bowl.
I broke down and started crying, I'm still shaking.
He's such a beautiful fish, I love him dearly, I cant believe I could be so stupid.
I'm ashamed of myself. But I am so thankful, so lucky, that he did not fall down the drain.

I'm so sorry :( You're not the worst owner at all. Not even close, not even a smidge of a neglectful owner. You simply made a misjudgment, don't be too hard on yourself. Think of it as a lesson learned.
I'm glad to hear you were able to grab him, and I hope there is no lasting harm. Best wishes to you and Bryan, I hope your day gets better.. he's going in a clean home, so his is already getting better

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!

I think we've all done stuff like that at one time or another.

I'm glad your fish is okay (:

I also did that once a loong time ago and after that I went out and bought the drain net thing. I know everybody already told you it's okay, I just want to say that judging from your reaction after this incident, I can tell you care deeply for your fish and you are an awesome fish owner, this was just a simple mistake so don't feel too bad!

I <3 bettafishes!



Wouldn't it be awesome to breed betta for your main job? :)
