Poor old boy...

My little old guy Gustav Passed way today.. He was a beautiful little sweet heart. I can't say that I'm not surprised, as he was getting very weak in the past few weeks/months. Got him over a year ago and I loved the little guy so much. My first double tail.

Miss you little guy. Have fun in heaven!

On one hand I'm glad he's gone because he's just hasn't been himself lately and I knew it was coming, nothing that I could have stopped, as you can't stop old age...

Still, I'm sad...

Sad in a way that we can become so attached to creatures with short life spans isn't it? Beloved pets have left me heartbroken many, many times... But then that means that we can be there for all of their lives too and just maybe that's more important.

Rest in peace Gustav

Aw )= sorry about Gustav. But removing old life makes way for new life so one day, in the near future or distant, you could get another Betta to honor his memories.
