We lost our dear Charlemagne yesterday. I feel so sad and I hope it's ok if I vent here.
Charlemagne meant a lot to my boyfriend and I. He had such a wonderful personality and would dance around right before feeding time. He would beat his tail and eagerly expose his mouth at the surface for food. He was a pig.
Now that he's gone I have this emptiness inside me. I don't want to do anything fish related. I hate looking into his now empty tank. I had plans for our boy Charlemagne. He was spoiled and we had plans to spoil him more with live foods, new plants, we even made him a cave.
Every betta thing I drew began with him as inspiration.
I have other bettas to care for but it just hurts.
We bought an orchid for him today and we put his favorite decoration in there. Well maybe not his favorite but it always reminded us of him and went in every tank theme we created for him. Even if it didn't fit or make sense.
I'm so sad and I miss him so very much. I don't want him to be gone.
I miss you Charlemagne, I can never ever forget you. You brought me and my boyfriend into this hobby as a couple. Brought us closer together. We loved you and We'll always remember you
