Goodbye Curly

Last Sunday Curly passed away. He had been having a rough time for his last few months unfortunately. He had pop eye and a slight case of dropsy, which I cured finally. He got better for a while, but then he just lost interest in life. He wouldn't eat, wouldn't swim, and just sat in the same place all the time. I felt so bad for him. Up until recently he had a very healthy life though. He was about 3 years old when he passed. That is the longest I've ever had a fish. I hope he is much happier now.

A friend recently asked me what I like and don't like about having bettas. I'll skip the likes as I'm sure everyone could say the same. The dislike is they don't live as long as another animals ie dogs. 3 years is a long time, you obviously did something right.

Sounds like he was well taken care of. My betta lived for 5 years and that is how he behaved before passing, he had the old timer betta look, and it was just his time to go. I still miss him and that was 6 years ago. Sorry for you're loss.
