She died this morning. I've never actually caught the moment when my bettas were slipping away. :/ Her breathing slowed down, and she was looking me when her gills stopped moving. I felt/feel horrible that I couldn't have done anything but watch her die- and despite my not wanting to, I couldn't not watch her die, either, because... it would just seem... wrong.

I'm sorry, Amaryllis... R.I.P... <3

I'm so sorry. That's hard. I went through the same thing with Aurora. I actually saw her stop breathing.

I'm so sorry. I know how hard it is watching them go, even more so when you have to do it yourself :(

RIP pretty girl
