Rest in Peace, my beautiful Liberty.

My poor Bertie. :'( I was forced to end his 3 week battle with Columnaris today. After daily water changes in QT with salt treatment, he was only getting worse. He layed around all day. He only came up to try to eat and to get some air. The rest of the time he just sat gasping at the bottom of his jar. The Columnaris was eating away at his back. His scales there were completely gone... oh Bertie, I'm so so sorry. I'm seriously crying as I write this. I'm so upset. This is my first post in this section and I really didn't want it to come so soon. But my old boy was suffering, I couldn't watch him sit in pain anymore. I'm really upset though. He was the first betta I ever really connected with. I taught him to jump for food. I loved watching him explore and swim around, and he flared so violently sometimes... he was my favorite fishy. :'( I'm so sorry buddy. But we had a good 14 months together. <3 I'll always love you.

I'm so sorry :'( But he had a good life with you. He's up in Heaven now, and I bet he's with my Zekie and Zoiya in a nice big rice paddy somewhere.

Thank you very much. I really appreciate it. Crys, I hope and pray he is. My mom let me get a new betta this afternoon at petco. :') He's a very beautiful young fancy delta tail. <3 I love him already. He is floating in his new 3 gallon. I will be posting pics of him in the picture section now.

I'm sorry that you lost Liberty. He was so pretty and it sounds like he had tons of personality.

RIP fishy. You were loved.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
