SIP Artemis

He was a beautiful Betta who had iridescent colors that reminded me of the moon. Hence his name :)
I had him almost two years after falling for him at Petco. Unfortunately he had a thing for the filter intake grill, and even after I sewed very fine pantyhose to cover it and limit the flow, he would still go up to it and lean. Even if the filter/flow was off. This lead to tattered fins most of the time. I finally figured out a system that worked well. Which was that the filter was only on if I could watch him and make sure he wasn't leaning on the grill. And very often water changes and water tests as a result of limited filtering. There was nothing wrong with the water quality when he died, and his fins were finally getting back to where they were. I don't know why he died and it makes it worse

I'm going to miss those eyes that always followed me
