R.I.P My sweet Prince

Yesterday my Prince died. It's only now I'm slowly starting to get over his death. He took a turn Saturday. I tried everything, and I still don't know to this day what happened. It just keeps crossing my mind did I miss something so obvious. I asked at the garden centre, with video footage of all things. Thought I had it fathomed, and Monday morning not long after feeding him, which he reluctantly ate, he just sunk to the bottom of his tank. I just stood there with a tear wanting him to wake up, but the reality of it I knew he was gone.
He's had his burial in the garden with a plant put in, in his memory.
I'll never forget you Prince. You'll always be my number 1.
God bless you little guy.

Many thanks. I've just set the tank to go once more. Currently cycling with a slightly different set up to Prince. Doesn't make me feel so sad when I look at it anymore. It just looks like a lucky betta out there is going to get a good home and not have to live in a cup at the store any longer. I'm in no rush to get one though. I'm going to wait until one catches my eye and fall in love with straight away, just like it was with Prince.

I must say, you have a beautiful boy yourself. Very pretty indeed.

I am so sorry for your loss :( R.I.P. Prince

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
