SIP Jerrica Benton

My sweet girl, the first one I picked for my sorority, the first one to die. I don't know exactly what went wrong, but I think what happened is the change in pH from new driftwood and a subsequent ammo spike was too much for her. She was malnourished and weak when we got her, and I think she looked poorly bred. But I loved her for her underdogness.

I tried to save her but it just wasn't meant to be.

Here's some pics.

Very first night. She just hung in that one spot, and sagged and sagged. Looked so sad.


See how thin?


In her home after the QT for 2 weeks was nice! She was the most curious of all and loved to explore!


She had such pretty blue iridescence.


My very last pic of her, glad it was a good one. At least she had 2 months of good food, warm, clean water, and an interesting home to keep her busy.

She was absolutely beautiful. So sorry for your loss. You kept her happy, which is more than can be said for a lot of betta owners. <3

I considered taking her back to the pet store and using the receipt from a fish I bought recently, but decided against it. I couldn't bear the thought of her being tossed in their garbage or however they dispose of them, even if it meant I was saving another fish. So I just buried her under my favorite honeysuckle and rose mallow bush.
