I just read this whole thread- just want to say we all have things happen to pets that we blame ourselves for. At least we are trying our best to learn and move on and not make the same mistakes. I wish you good luck with your new one! I lost a platy a couple weeks ago and I didn't think it would make me feel that bad but I cried because I thought she suffered . ... I am sure I did something wrong but I never figured it out. So . .. basically I'm saying it happens and try not to feel too bad anymore. Just learn and move on, think of it as using your experiences to better take care of your new pets in the future. :)

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

Pinkerton Flowers and the fish formerly known as Prine Purplius LeGrape

Thank you! I really appreciate it. Most people I've talked to think that Crumpet wasn't very healthy to begin with and that he went into the log to die. That's sad but it makes me feel a little better than if he was healthy and got stuck and couldn't find his way out. You're right, though, about doing your best and trying to learn. So far Cleo seems very happy and healthy! Wilson the snail is thriving and the shrimp are doing great, too.

I'm really sorry to hear about your platy. I hope he didn't suffer. I'm sure you did everything you could. You sound like such a great pet parent. Thanks again for takin the time to comment. I was incredibly upset about Crumpet when it happened and people on this site were so nice and helpful and supportive. It truly did make me feel better.

Cleo -- female crowntail

RIP Crumpet.
