Henry, I wish I got to know you better..

This past Sunday I rescued two betta fish from horrible conditions.

Henry was a red double tail plakat. He was completely coated in ICH. I did all I could to treat him.. but he kept getting worse. I was so hopeful because he had a voracious appetite.

I lost him last night. I never got to watch him swim in a proper aquarium. I never got to see him flare at me, or explore. He is missing out on so much.

I wanted the best for him, but I couldn't save him. :(

SIP Henry. I hope the water under the Rainbow Bridge is nice and warm for you buddy..

I don't have many good pictures of him, since I had him for such a short amount of time, but here he is. He had the prettiest eyes...

I was actually just reading a little story about the rainbow bridge a few hours ago that was in a card we got.
