Thanks so much. I really miss him, he had this attitude about him that made me smile. I swear he could speak to me. I could feel guilty about forgetting to feed them, and then he'd swim to the top, fins a-going, he would forgive me as long as I promised him an extra bloodworm at snack time~ The only other Betta I feel I can connect with is Machiatto.... But I'm sure I'll connect the my newer ones soon. They're amazing creatures, and Biscotti sure let me know it. I was blessed to have one with a strong personality as my first, or I may not have become so serious about fish.
It's really the eyes that get me. They aren't like goldfish or guppies, these guys can speak to you if you are willing to watch them and listen.
