Didn't rescue him soon enough.

Unfortunately a male betta I had "rescued" from a luau (he was being used as a center piece with terrible living conditions--who knows how long they had him in the cup before he got to the less than a gallon tank) passed this morning.

I'm nearly positive he was constipated and had swim bladder disease. He was in a hospital tank while I was going to try the whole fast for a day, eat a frozen pea the next trick, but passed before I could treat him.

I hope I gave him the best, last few days before he went. I hope one day people will realize how much care and love bettas need.

RIP Liam

Right? It's a terrible thing

The one that really gets to me is going to Petco one day to look at the bettas, and only 24 hours later over half of them are dead I don't wanna give petco my money and encourage this behavior, but I just wanna save them all.
