This is crazy... I'm sorry, Sparrow...
So as a few of you know I purchased two HMs from AB in April. It turned out the female had parasites, so it took a while to cure her. I was conditioning them both and I was just going to release the female today when I found her. :(
I've no idea why she was like that. She was swimming on the bottom of the tank, like gravity was smushing her down hard, and she couldn't swim up. I lowered her water level, took her out and put her on my desk so that Reggie (the male) couldn't bug and stress her anymore, but within half an hour she was gone.
I haven't had any betta deaths in 2 months! I think this might be starting it up again... :(
I'm sorry Sparrow... Have fun in the big rice paddy in the sky. x
