S.I.P. Little Fishie

S.I.P. Little Fishie. I only had you for a week and you were never healthy during that time, so I never even gave you a real name. Even so, I got attached to you, and I'm going to miss you.

These are two of the few pictures I have of you that show your pretty, pretty fins. I wish I'd had you longer.....

Thank you. Two people here said that his symptoms matched those of a "mystery disease" that's affecting blue bettas. (There's a sticky about it in the Emergencies and Diseases forum.) He was a very pretty deep blue color, almost blue-purple, with red on his fins. He was also much smaller than my other two bettas, so I think he must have still been very young....

Oh I have never heard of that before.... must read that sticky. I hate losing a young betta, seems to be so much worse if they haven't lived out their life span... I am so sorry. So have you got any other bettas? or do you think you will get another one if you don't already have one?

I'm new to fishkeeping, but I'm already addicted to bettas. I got my first, a female VT, in October. I picked up the second, a male VT, in November.... I saw Little Fishie, a male HM (or maybe delta, now that I'm learning more about them), at the end of November, and I couldn't resist.

Little Fishie was beautiful. He also just never settled in. He'd been stressed in the store, and he was stressed here. I thought he was coming around though - he even ate a pellet and started exploring his new home. Then, he clamped up, and within hours, he was gone.... Losing him was pretty traumatic, and I hadn't even had him for long.

PetSmart has a 14 day guarantee, so after he died, I brought him back there. (I felt badly about bringing him back rather than doing something like burying him, but....) They asked if I wanted a replacement or a refund. I turned around and there were the bettas -- and there was a green/red/white HM looking at me. Needless to say, I took the replacement.

Who's the betta in your avatar? He's very pretty.
