Unhappy Goodbye to my beautiful blue betta

After a long battle with a growing cancerous lump on my betta after 2 years of life I had to say goodbye to him. I felt so guilty because when I first bought him I thought they only needed one gallon tank and no heater :'( but then I learned a year later they needed much much more care but I was already too late I tried very long and spent much money trying to save my little betta fish with fungus and bacterial medicines! But in the end I had to kill him when he finally couldn't swim anymore when the lump reached his swim bladder. I researched many ways to kill them the best way possible and decided to freeze him. It was fast and I hope I did the right thing. I cried doing it I was so sad and never will I treat a betta in such a small tank:( I got a new betta recently and he is happy living in a nice warm 20 gallon tank with lots of caves and plants! But I will still take a moment to say goodbye to my old fish friend.

Swim in peace

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple. The philosophy is kindness.

I just had to do the same for my poor Jippers, the tumor was making it impossible to swim and he kept floating... I have heard that clove oil is more humane than freezing, so I did that method today... my thoughts and prayers are with you, and our fish buddies under the rainbow bridge
