SIP Little Star
SIP little star. You really were a star!
He was a rescue from a pet store, I went in for something else and saw bettas in cloudy and dirty water and the woman there wouldn't change their water till "next week". So I took two bettas home with me. Star grew back beautiful fins, he turned from pale peach into a beautiful vibrant orange with a turquoise stripe in his tail! So beautiful. The turquoise in his tail kept changing and it was really pretty how it looked, different every so often. He was such a friendly and happy fish. The last few weeks he started resting more and his eyesight wasn't so good anymore. He would aim for his food and miss it but he'd go after it like crazy after it fell to the bottom where he could see it. He didn't eat the last two days and was breathing heavy.
I was next to his tank talking to him and left his side for a minute and when I came back a minute later he was gone. :(. I just wanted him to be here for one more night but I'm glad he isn't suffering at all now. I'll miss him very much.
