yep. He last way too darn long x) Got him from Ralph's Pet Store when he was 3, (Ralph kept a lot of bettas... all very healthy happy chaps) and he lasted 4 years after. For the longest time I thought "okay, he'll die, he looks like he will" because well...old, and sickly and he would....not...die x.x for a whole year he was sick...and being not...as...experienced....I didn't know what to do. I also, didn't have internet to use.
Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.
You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
