R.I.P. Maya

My red veiltail betta has passed away this afternoon. There are still his bubble nests around the top of the aquarium. I noticed he was bloated or bigger and wouldn't eat his pellets. Could he have ate snails and that caused him to die? I have mini pond snails. I noticed a drop in their numbers. I would like to know as much as possible what the cause of death could have been. I had him for two years or more. The water was clean. I'll miss him.

Aww... sorry for your loss. I don't know what could have caused him to die, though. Sorry.

I'm so sorry! :( At least he had a good life, I'd take away some snails if I were you.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Thank you! You think the snails are sick or carry something harmful in them, is that why you would take them away?
