RIP Sheldon :(

Last night, I lost my old man, Sheldon..
There was some moss that was in his tank that I left because I thought it was pretty, and last night, he got stuck in it. I feel absolutely awful..I ripped that moss out of there and threwit in the garbage, never ever using moss again. I'm so so sorry sheldon </3 Hes the boy that started it all!

Oh what a beauty Sheldon was! Sorry he died :( I never thought Moss could pose such a danger to fish.

Thanks guys :( Neither did I! My 'Fish room' seems a little more empty now that "shelly" is gone.

I'm sorry for your loss. I'm awfully new to bettas. I just don't understand what the moss did to him. Was he stuck for an extended period of time?

Thank you!
Yep I have lots of bettas lol. 4 adult females and 5 adult males..I have no idea how many 4 month olds now haha. Over 100 still I think.

But Sheldon was in a 15 gallon tank that had a LOT of plants in it, went to feed him the night before and didnt see him, but I just figured he was hiding somewhere or being elusive. I'm not sure how long he had been stuck in it, he was totally fine and un-stuck that morning...Little did I know that 24 hours later, he'd be gone :( Poor guy..I feel just awful. I ripped all the moss out and boiled it just for added revenge lol.
