Unhappy I'm sorry I failed you Ryu :'(

I hate it. I hate it, I hate it, i hate it. I tried so hard to care for my fish, doing everything I thought was right. Then this morning I wake up, go to check on the tank and he's dead. Him and the clown pleco both. I know they both had Ick, but I'd been treating it and then was also treating for columnaris as it looked like he might have that as well. Either way, it wasnt enough or I was wrong. The fish are gone and I'm not sure what to do now.

I just hate it so much I feel like i've failed.

peace. love. & bettas.

I know this is late but I'm so sorry about your fish. Sometimes these things happen despite our best efforts. I don't think you're a failure, you just had bad luck.

Fail is such a harsh and wronge word. I don't believe you failed at all! Somtimes these stupid (I would cuss but I think I would get banned...) At least they were loved!

An odd and kina messed up way to think about it is that you have more room to try agean! You can pm me or something to talk about it. We all have hard times with these guys, other people just don't understand...

Better luck next time my friend!

Thanks. It sucked and was hard because I did try everything i could to keep him alive, but in the end it just didnt happen. Unfortunately. But atleast I know he had a good life for a while and didnt live forever in those horrid cups. And now I have two new boys who will be loved just as much.

peace. love. & bettas.
