To be honest I don't think I could euthanize. I know exactly how to do it humanely but I don't think I would be able to do it myself. I almost did it to pandora but she died a few minutes before I was heading to the store to get clove oil. I was balling at the thought of doing it.

Omg, Teeney, just the thought of that, is in itself, heartbreaking,^^ I could never, and what if the fish can be saved, I would go thu hell and highwater to make sure that I have exhausted all options before I ever do that.. I'd be scared to death..no way

  • My biggest problem I've had with my girls is trying to get them to get along with one another. They love to harass one another.
  • I definitely don't spoil them other than trying to fatten them up a little if they're looking thin in the beginning.
  • Also I haven't even used a heater for them because their tanks are always steady at 78-85 degrees.

I even went to PS yesterday during the HUGE 3 hour rainstorm & looked through their selection & nothing caught my eye. Most of the bettas had clean cups, some had clamped fins, but 6 were actively exploring their cups, staring at me & doing handstands.

  • Also if you did buy Tiny from Petsmart, you could bring her back for store credit if you bring a sample of the water. They have a 15 day guarantee but I've NEVER had to use it.

Please be more cautious if you plan on getting another one from the stores. Walk away if the fish look ill or don't grab your attention.

That's how I ended up getting bettas in the first place.

I'm 90% sure if I had chosen the bettas you did I would have lost all of them as well.

At least you still have Teeney & she looks really happy & healthy.
You're right, it may not have been the pet store. But the pet store still had them in filthy cups, and dropsy is caused by poor water quality. And yes, I'm thankful to have Teeney happy and healthy. :)

Ah, jeez.. I'm so sorry for your loss.

My daughter loves Teeney-fish, she's quite the fan and we were both happy you'd found another wee betta to care for. She'll be sad to hear that Tiny is gone.. as am I.

Oh no I'm so sorry! :( I noticed Tiny missing from you're signature and thought of checking the memorials hoping to not find this. You are a great betta owner; Tiny was lucky to have you as her mommy. <3

So, so sorry, Teeney :(

Rest in Peace, little Tiny! <3

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Tiny was so cute! So sorry you lost her. You never know what can happen, and I think sometimes they are so small that if something really nasty gets them, the best medicine in the world wouldn't be enough. I would have grabbed her, too, sweety! I am a sucker for the sick little loves- I have only had my girl Hot Lips for a couple weeks, and I was sure she wouldn't make it home, she looked so bad. Keep comfort in the fact that fish have short memories, and for as long as she could remember, she was your beloved little girl. And smile- you were lucky to have her, but not nearly as lucky as she was to have YOU! :) Hugs!
