Crom :(

Well.. Crom's been sick for a while. A few months ago he lost his color and a lot of his tail and fins. He bounced back from that, but then a couple weeks ago then he stopped eating as much and then started hiding a lot. He hasn't eaten in the past week at all, sitting around the bottom of his tank, sometimes on his side, sometimes kind of hovering vertically. Occasionally coming up for air. It got to the point where I could grab him with my hands and he didn't fight it. I would put food right in front of his face and he wouldn't even touch it. I don't know what happened to him, I changed his water twice a week, 2.5 gallon tank, so plenty of space. I tried giving him some meds from the fish store, but no luck.

I was actually going to put him under tonight, but when I came home, he was already gone. Rest In Peace little buddy!

Here's the last living pic of him.. from last night I think.

Aw, I am so sorry. I just lost a beloved betta, so I can feel your pain. May he rest in peace.

Rest in peace, Kenji. I will never forget you.
