Poor Ganymede :(

My first betta Ganymede met a very horrible and tragic end today. I was beside myself when I found him.

The cover must have come off the intake part of his filter, and he got sucked in. I went to look at him about an hour ago and saw only his tail sticking out, it was so horrible. He was my first betta, and the sweetest little fish ever. He loved to come out and watch whenever I was near his tank and he flared maybe three times in the ten months that I had him. I know I will never find another betta as sweet as him.

I feel horrible that he must have been in so much pain, and he never got to live out his full life. And I keep feeling like it was my fault, I never thought to periodically check and make sure the cover on the tube was tight and secure. I feel sick and I can't stop crying.

Rest in peace, Ganymede, I love you.

He was beautiful, and now he will be the most beautiful little double tail in heaven. Worry not, heaven has the best fish tanks in the universe. Your sweet and stunning little guy will understand. The same thing happened to my Halfmoon. It was a combination of Ich and getting stuck to the bottom of his little filter that did him in. :/ So sorry.
