The fish with no name.

My beautiful boy arrived without a hint of life in him. I felt it in me that he wouldn't make it from his long trip. I kept making excuses to myself on how he would make it. Petco bettas are shipped and they live right? Those fish stay in the bags longer right? They turn out fine. He made it to the transhipper ok but five days was just to long for my beautiful boy. He arrived in dirty water the same color of my floors. I don't blame him for not hanging on I just hoped he would. His color was more beautiful than the pictures. Instead of the deep sea blue he was pictured he was a beautiful cyan green. I am sitting here writing this with tears in my eyes hopping he will somehow come back to me. I will post some pictures of him but it might be gross to some of you. It's mostly just my beautiful boy in dirty water however.

My heart is heavy with your loss. You still need to give him a name, so that you can remember him.
