Red, my poor little fishy
Red insin't a betta, but he was a sword tail.
I just think it would be nice to have a memorial for all fish. Since all fish can touch your hearts, have quirky personalities, even light up your life in a small way.
I only had red for a few days. I got him and three other fish on friday. I think he was sick when I got him, but showed no signs of being sick till it was to late. Any way, when feeding time came, he would dart out and gobble all the fish flakes. In a few inches of himself, then Hide. And peek out of my large hornwort as if to say " I am the Fish thief you can't catch me."
Any way even when red got sick, and put in his hospital tank. Every time I checked on him, he would be sitting on the bottom. Until he saw me then he would try to swim just for me.
I feel so bad I couldn't do anything for him, but at least He knows I tried.
At least when he died, he wasn't at a the pet store, ware they would have just thrown him away, instead of at least saying goodbye.
My little good boy Named Red.
