RIP Oscar (the grouch)

Grouchy little fish but much loved. Not sure how he died, one minute, happily making a bubble nest, next minute - dead...

i'm so sorry. the same thing happened to Riley, one day he was healthy, the next day he died. maybe from old age. but at least he had a nice home and a nice owner!

Thanks for the wishes. I'm looking at getting a new betta male, although he won't replace Oscar. Oscar was a veil tail, does the care of crown tails, HM, vary at all?

No, they all require the same care. Hm's might require cleaner water to keep their fins in pristine condition, but if you aren't showing them I don't think it matters. I'm sorry about Oscar :(

Sorry bout Oscar :(

HMs are a little more tempermental but in general just the same with care.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
