I'll always love you.

So, today, i woke up to my beloved grell, dead in his tank. I had put a plant in a few days before and the plant ended up making him sick. He's the first betta fish I've ever owned, and he will not be the last, but he will always hold a special place in my heart. I love you grell, and I always will.

I'm sorry you lost Grell *hugs*.. Things like this happen. And it hard to lose your first betta, mine died a few days ago and I cried about it. :(
Next time you should quarantine plants for at least a week before putting them in with fish, they can carry all sorts of nasties!

Don't say that.. Is Undertaker acting strangely?
If you have any doubts about the plant, remove it and QT it. And change Undertaker's water. It may help prevent any sickness..

The plant was rubber? I thought it was live. :( It may have been bad quality and leached some chemicals into the water. Sorry you lost your other boy too but I'm glad you aren't giving up on the bettas!
I think you should go to the store and complain about the plant and hopefully get it exchanged.. If not, throw it away..

Good idea. :) If you do get another betta, be sure to rinse out your tank well with hot water before you put him in.. Just in case. :) Good luck!

Definitely rinse out :) You can use vinegar, and rinse thoroughly with hot water, and it should be good :)
