Mother's day tragedy

Today, on mother's day my male white HM named Chaos passed away. He was imported from Thailand about a month ago. He arrived with fin rot. I named him Chaos because he didn't have a good beginning since day one. His fin rot was so stubborn and it never cleared. He nearly died 3 times, but somehow he managed to pull through. He was acting sick again 2 days ago, so I did the same treatment and hoped that he will pull through. I checked on him regularly to see if he was OK. I lowered his water level since he was having difficulty swimming up to the surface for air. Last I saw, he was laying on his side. His body was bent toward the surface and looked like he was trying to breath air. I feel so bad... I hope he didn't suffer. Rest in peace Chaos. At least you are no longer suffering...

I am so sorry for your loss. It's not your fault that he arrived sick.
It was his time. At least now, he is in peace in the Great Big Pond in the Sky...
He is also joining my previous fish, Shaq. Let them both be in peace in the sky...

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

awww so sorry!!

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.

Sorry to hear that you lost your buddy. He sure was a beauty!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I know what you mean!! I finally have stopped losing my precious bettas - whether to disease, unknown, or age.

Aww I am so sorry! At least you gave him TLC the short time he had with you! It isn't your fault that he came that way.

R.I.P. He is a beauty.
