Unhappy SIP, Rubin

I really don't know what's been happening. First Pumpkin Cheesecake is gone, now my precious Rubin, who passed yesterday morning. I only have Maggie left now. I feel like a horrible betta keeper.

I'm sure its nothing you are doing. I'm probably going to get bashed here but they a fragile fish and sometimes it doesn't matter how well we care for them they just die. The fish store told me its just the luck of the draw with bettas. Sometimes you get one that last for years and another time a month. Did you get them all from the same pet store? If so how about trying another store. It sucks, I'm sorry but don't give up on them. Mine had issues on the weekend and I said if he doesn't make it the tank and all is out of here. When I saw him swimming (still can't believe it) the next day I was sucked right back in. Gotta love them.

So sorry for your loss. I'm sure he enjoyed his life, though.

I'm so sorry for your loss. :'(

Swim in peace, Rubin.

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. ^_^
