I just came home and found him dead.

He tried his best to fight whatever was wrong with his face...but it seemed to get worse everday. I wish I could have done more for him, though.

I feel pretty down right now. I had him for such a short amount of time...he really should have lived longer. I don't seem to have much luck with the handsome ones.

RIP Albatross, you were a great betta.

I'm so sorry you lost him. He was lucky to have someone who cared so much about him, and tried so hard to save him.

Sorry you had to go so soon Albatross, you were a beautiful boy! Take comfort in that you gave him such a wonderful home, he could have spent his life living in a cup if anyone else had bought him.
