Unhappy My poor, poor Tesla.

This thread is dedicated to Tesla, or "The Scientist". You may have read one of my many threads about him, he's the guy who bit off his caudal fin at the pet store. He was from petco, and he didn't really look to good at the store, but I got him anyway. He did great the first two days, all perky and happy. But, on the night of day four, he was super groggy and lethargic, wouldn't eat, and was laying on his Betta hammock not moving but still alive. This morning (day 5) I woke up to find him dead. Even though I only had him five days, it felt like a lifetime. It's not like I took poor care of him, had had a 2 gallon KK hospital tank to help his tail, which included a heater, thermometer, Betta hammock with wire removed, and java moss. His water was dosed with stress coat and prime and it was 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Tesla, you will be missed.


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. ^_^

Oh, no... I'm so sorry. You did the best you could, at least he was loved.

Thank you. I think I'm going to take a break on getting new Bettas, and just focus on my current ones.

I'm so sorry. At least he passed away in a nice warm, clean home, and not in some wretched cup.

I am so so sorry. He was a little survivor. S.I.P., Tesla. You will be missed.

S.I.P Telsa. He was a very beautiful fish, and he died in a great home. He had clean, warm water, tasty food, but most of all he had a great owner.

Yes, I am into My Little Ponies. My favorite princess: Princess Luna, the princess of the night.
