You fought hard, Luke

My newest rescue betta, Luke Seaswimmer (I got him on May fourth, Star Wars day, so I thought it fit) passed away last night. When I picked him up from the pet store, he appeared to have really bad fin rot, which I figured out yesterday was actually columnaris. He was being treated and improving, but then took a turn for the worse on Sunday. I was surprised he made it as long as he did in his condition, but he was a fighter and was determined. Unfortunately he didn't make it, but his will to live was incredible and was a great inspiration to me. Rest in peace little buddy.

XOXO

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!

I am sorry to hear about your loss.I love his name, and you did a good deed for making those couple days great for the poor little fellow. Unfortunately, pet stores these times do not take very good care of betta fish in those poor little plastic prisons, but it is wonderful you took up the task.

Sorry for your loss.

Thank you. This is the second time I've lost a rescue, and it just makes me more mad at those people for letting them get as bad as they do.

Holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die.
