The Passing of Ciel Phantomhive....

Well, I don't normally post these threads....but Ciel was special. He deserved it.

Ciel was my lovely little Christmas fish last year, a fish I swear had been waiting weeks for me at Petsmart and I finally broke down and bought him on December 23 and had to sneak him home.
He was such a cute little guy, very lively, very interactive, but with his own little independent feisty streak.


The past several months, he grew a lot in my care and marbled up quite a bit(something I had planned to show off here on our one year together....)





A few weeks ago, he had a little mishap with the filter intake....but he seemed to be just as feisty as ever and ready to heal up nicely again.


Unfortunately, it seems he was struck by something else, something I maybe didn't diagnose properly or treat in time...and this morning I discovered that he had passed away in QT.
He will be buried outside in our lovely little garden later today......RIP Ciel Phantomhive.

I am so sorry for your loss, this makes me want to cry. I am close to my 1 year with my very first Betta and I hope we make it there.

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

A cold cup was not my destiny-Heart Breaker

Thank you both. It certainly was a very difficult loss....I even dreamed he came back last night.
But I do have my other boys, they certainly help, and this weekend I'll finally have my newest boy and setting up his tank is a welcome distraction.

Aww, I'm sure you will Candice, don't worry. <3

I'm sorry for your loss. On a side note I think that name is very fitting for that fish. Just finished watching black butler about 2 days ago.
