Delilah <3

So, my little purple girl, Delilah has passed away For the past couple days, she'd seemed quite tired, and was clamped and sitting on the bottom a lot, which was unusual for her. She didn't seem to have any other symptoms to speak of - she was still alert and eating.

I got her in July, after seeing her in Walmart every day for a week, sitting in filthy water. One night, I was on my couch thinking about her, and I just had to go get her. I ended up with her and another girl, Cali.

What a special little fish she was Always the happiest little purple thing I've ever seen. I will miss her so much.

Here she is just after I brought her home, when she was living in a 1 gallon container before I bought her a tank:

So sorry for your loss. If you gives the care you gave her we can help prevent that from happening again.

I am so sorry for your loss Toad, I am sure she had the very best home she could of ever had with you.

Just because I'm in a cup, does not mean to pass me up, all day long I sit and stare wishing you would take me there. To your home to set me free, in a tank would mean worlds to me. I'll be your friend and loving pet, buying me wont bring regret. I'm just a Betta can't you see, all I ask is you could too love me - CandiceMM

Thanks, BettaQi!

Choclate, I don't think it was the cup; she had been in a 3 gallon tank without the cup for a few weeks before she died. Perplexing.
