Unhappy Blues for Blooie

Little Blooie died today. One of my Siamese warfish.
He was a good little fish. He bit me a couple of times while I was playing
around with him. What a shockwave. He was big and boney and proud.

He was my longest-lasting fish. I noticed he wasn't doing too well
last night. He was just trying to stay afloat and breathe. These
thypes of fish have to breathe outside air; they can't get it
completely from the water like most other kinds of fish.

Now I'll have to get a new playmate for little Red. I think it was the
stress of being in the same tank with Red that killed him. At first
Blooie was the aggressor, but little Red caught on quickly and
although little Red's bite is not as hard as Blooie's was, it's hard
enough to rip a fin off.

Say a prayer for little Blooie. May he rest in peace down the chute.

Wait, are siamese warfish the same as bettas? If so, why do you have them in the same tank? They will fight to death this way.

Anyway, sorry about Blooie. :(

I certainly don't want them to fight to the death, although I know they will. They're separated by a glass partition. They drive each other nuts all day!

Thanks for your condolences of little Blooie. I loved him and he loved me.

I'm assuming this is a betta and my Siamese war fish, you mean the Siamese fighting fish.

Sorry for your loss.

Thank you both for your condolences. I loved him and he loved me. He was big and boney and proud, and will be remembered for a long time.
