SIP Fira :(

My mom just texted me (I'm at school) and apparently one of my girls jumped out of the little lid space to her death. SIP little one. You went from a shy little thing in a pet store cup to one of the leaders of the sorority. She got in a big fight with one of the girls when I first got her (with another very dominant female), but her tail was finally healing super nicely again. I don't know what happened to make her jump, but SIP in fishy heaven.

Fira (cambodian)

Sorry for your loss.

Is she sure she was dead? Bettas have been known to go for an hour+ and survive when put back in the tank...

Thanks guys. :( She's definitely dead, my mom kept her body for me (in water). Looks like she got in another fight though, some of her fins are pretty shredded. She was a bit of an instigator, I guess this time she lost and tried to find a way out. I wish she had gone more peacefully, but I guess that's the risk with a sorority. :/
