You'll be my ocean, Kai

This is so overdue, but I wanted to share.

Kai was a beautiful red and blue Crowntail male. His name means 'ocean' in Hawaiian.

I got to spend two wonderful months with him. Him coming up to greet me with his little bulldog face, fierously attacking his food and the filter current.

Then one day, I overfed him by a couple flakes. Kai starting becoming sluggish and when he swam, he would flip It was all my fault. He got Swim Bladder Disease.

I'm sorry Kai, I'm sorry I had to end your wonderful life so soon. I tried my best to revive you, but it went to far. Life seemed to be getting sucked out your eyes. I really did try, you were my precious little boy. I really do miss you.

Don't forget Kai, you will always be my ocean ...

I'm so sorry. Don't blame yourself.... My first betta, Jacques Cousteau, died after six months of sbd also. I blamed myself, but I think sometimes these things just happen. Lovely name.

I'm so sorry! It's really not your fault. Whatever happened was meant to happen, no matter how sad it is. Just know that he's under the rainbow bridge, and you'll be reunited someday.

Hello! I'm a former fishkeeper and bettafish.com-er with a rekindled interest in the betta hobby. I don't have any bettas currently, but I'm brushing up on my fishkeeping knowledge with the intention of eventually bringing home another finned friend. ^_^
