Unhappy Red is dead...

I knew it would come. I just knew. I thank everyone for the words of teaching and kindness. Red was my first fish and as the first, was doomed from the start. Red got me into alot of trouble, mostly because of things that I had done. Or the things that I did not realize was wrong. His issues were great, my patience was thin. He had contracted swim bladder at the age of eight months. I was then told that he would be dead in less than a month. That was four months ago. He bagn to bite the tail, turning him from crowntail to a plakat looking thing. I kept the water pure, medicated, perfect. There was just no saving him. Red Foreman Damron, may you rest in peace. Good bye.

I am the Emeraldmaster, hear me roar... *meow*

And after I roar at you, may I entice you to look at me fishies! http://www.bettafish.com/members/emeraldmaster-albums.html

I'm so sorry. That was a heartbreaking story. At least you took the best care of him possible. S.I.P., Red Foreman Damron

I'm sorry for your loss. Dont let that bad experience effect your views on keeping bettas though, theres always another one out there waiting for you to rescue it from a horrible living condition. And those four months were probably four moths longer that he lived than at a pet store.

RIP July
I live at a zoo lol
remember

I got a replacement for him, his death inspired me to keep going. I am only a beginer fish keeper, many fish will die. But those that come after will be living in a figurative heaven.

Sorry for your loss.

"Nothing like it, baby!" -Cabanela

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.
