Unhappy My First Passed Prematurely

During the last water change he quickly swam in to my gravel vac and was sucked up in to the tiny tubing... I got him out as quickly as I could and put him in quarantine, but there was too much damage :(

RIP my first... you started it all.

I'm so sorry. That's awful, and one of the many reasons why I cup my fish while gravel vacuuming.

The 55 gallon community tank is the only I use a gravel vac for and there are so many fish in it :( I should have at least cupped Poseidon... Hindsight...

That really sucks. I wouldn't expect a Betta to be small enough to get sucked up, either!

I guess this is like Dropping your betta on the floor when water changing. It makes you so scared and guilty. I feel so sorry for you, because i know how you must have felt.
