Unhappy Sashimi. He met so much to me.

Sashimi, May 2nd-May 23rd. 21 days of pure greatness.

I remember on May 2nd, I went to my LPS...& I saw this beautiful red veil-tail. The worker there said he was the oldest one here. But,me and him had this connection that i had to get him. He was my first betta...& the only reason why I have an account here (you can tell by my username).

This morning he past away, and it's been hard.

R.I.P Sashimi. I really miss you.

My Bettas:
Sashimi: Red Veil-Tail Male, May 2nd, 2011 (R.I.P)
Leela: Blue/Green Veil-Tail Female, May 14th, 2011
Gemini: Pearl/Green/Red Delta Male, May 21st, 2011 (R.I.P)

& Unnamed 5 Bettas


Old fisherman never die, they just smell like it.

I assume old age. He was 2 years, 3 months and 21 days old.

It wasn't illness, he wasn't bloated, he swam fine, his fins were in great shape. idk :(

Unhappy

I know how it feels, recently my 7 betta fish passed away during spring break, but 2 weeks before my oldest and best betta fish passed, his name was Ritotini.

I got really stressed out, and i still cry now, he was the one I spawned with Fiona, my first two bettas i got after about 3 years.

After the sad death, I realized what death ment to me, and i think that the rain that drops onto us, is the fertile eggs him and Fiona make, giving us more life and food.

After spring break, one fish remand, Scales. He was sick, but i knew there was no time, so i didn't contact the fourms, i made a big mistake.






he died 3 days later.

Got my boy Ceviche<3
and a plant named Frank

I'm very sorry! But now now that you have a 20g with heater and filter, NO BETTA can die for a while. I'm setting up a 10g for mine!
