You did good by him Feng and I'm sorry for your loss. That's kind of fish you never forget no matter how short a time they were with you.

Thank you. I like to think he's happy and comfortable now.

He was just starting to swim around and explore when I went to bed last night.

The first thing I checked when I opened my eyes this morning was his tank. My heart sunk when I saw that the water was cloudy. It took a few moments to locate his little body sticking out from where it was wedged between the glass beads. He spent all of yesterday hiding among them and would blend right in because of how colourless he was. I don't know why he died. I had tested his cup yesterday and the water parameters weren't bad. Although he had only one eye, a scarred face, a skinny body, torn fins, and missing scales, those wounds were old. He did not have any physically signs of illness. He was also active and swimming when he was in his cup. Nothing was wrong with my water and I acclimated him really slowly.

Maybe I did something wrong. I'll never know for sure.

No Feng, sometimes the fish are too weak for us to nurse back. Its okay. It isn't your fault. You gave him a more than amazing home to be in before he passed. That's all he could've asked for anyways.<3

If we are made of cells, then a scientist who studies cells is actually a group of cells studying themcells!

I begged her to buy him: he will forever be my little Scarface. <3 SIP.

He survived for two months braving the conditions of a pet store. I'm of the mind he was finally at peace or what he ha struggled and waited for, so ... That may not make sense to anyone else (but Feng), but that's what I believe.

Feng's girlfriend, <3

S.I.P little guy

such a cute little betta fish. So caring and kind of you to have seen past his deformity and see the loving caring fish everyone else failed to see. he died in a loving home comfortably. He was lucky that someone loved him brought him home released him from his prison cup and took care of him the best they could and gave him all the love and care until he took his last breath.
