Goodbye Lulemutski

My boyfriend found my baby betta (about 9 weeks old if that when I got him) dead today. I rescued him from a chain pet store and he was in bad shape (so bad they gave him away for free) but survived exactly 1 month with me today, his fins were starting to grow back really nicely and he was growing a lovely little half moon, he seemed really happy.

A few days ago I moved him to a bigger tank and I think the stress of the move was too much for him. I regret changing that tanks now and I'm really upset but I'm glad I at least managed to give him a month of pampered happiness and probably prolonged his life a lot longer than had he remained in the pet store.

I will miss his cute little face, and how shy and afraid he was at first till he got to know me.

So sorry for your loss! At least you tried your best and gave him a good life, even if it was only one month.
