Sorry Max

Well the little sick betta, Max, that I bought last week died today. I tried so hard to save him, I'm not sure what happened, but I feel bad because I can't help but wonder if I did something wrong.

I only had him for 8 days but he was special. I put him on my nightstand and he would watch TV with me. I know he's just a fish but I'm really going to miss him. I just hope he knew that he had a home where he was loved. I just can't believe he's gone :(

SIP little fish!

I feel so sad when I see posts in this section...I'm so sorry for your loss.
So many people losing their little fish friends, and I've never really experienced that fishy loss myself, so I can only imagine! I guess I've just been lucky, as all of my bettas have come from pet stores...it scares me to think that I could lose one at the drop of a hat with no explanation.

Again, I'm sorry for your loss! At least he got to feel love and cared for before he passed, I'm sure you did everything you could to make his last few days wonderful.

They're never "just a fish". :( I absolutely love both of my bettas and I couldn't bare parting with them. I'll be heartbroken when they pass. I just hope it won't be any time soon.

I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure you made him happy by giving him a place to call home. Better to die in a tank in a house where you're loved than in a small, cold cup in a store.

Thank you both for your kind words, they're appreciated. This really made me realize how special my other two boys are, that they're more than fish, they're my buddies.

Max was really cool though, he picked me, and I think he liked to watch Modern Family with me too. He would always sit in the corner when I had it on.

Thank you, he was a special little guy. I just saw your post about your fish, Noodle, hopefully they'll find each other up there and be friends :)
