Natusko is gone :(

Hello all, I really hoped that I wouldnt have to post anything this part of the forums for a long long time.

I lost my beautiful mermaid girl suddenly overnight from a mysterious illness that was extremely sudden. It happened so fast in 12 hours. I just checked on her in her quarantine cup. Literally 12 hours ago she was perfectly fine! Then, she just couldnt move most of her body like she was paralyzed. She had no symtoms of any disease I could think of besides being legarthic. I really hope it wasnt tuberculosis. My girls' are kinda swimming around as if they are looking for her. Sakura, her long distant sister, stayed next to her until she passed. Well, after that she still stayed next to her until I removed Natsuko's cup. Sakura is swimming around like she is upset. Im also so upset and crying right now I might have to call in work. I cant believe shes gone. I did my very best to stay with her and keep her healthy today- getting no sleep. I am thinking about having her creamated and keeping her ashes in a small jar.


Everyone can see her and enjoy her in the happy days by going here:

I am sooooo sorry for your loss, losing pets is always a heart breaker =( I don't know if it's possible to cremate a fish, but one thing you could do is bury her in soil in a pot and plant flowers over her.

My Current bettas:
Sullivan- Orange rose tail halfmoon male
Daisy- Mustard Gas (black and yellow) veil tail female
Milton- Teal butterfly halfmoon male (mom's betta)

thanks :) I wrapped her in some tp and napkins, and put that in a tightly sealed baby food jar. I live in an apt complex but I have a bush in front of my window. I crept outside with a spoon and burried her jar :p When i move into a house I hope to take her with me and bury her in my yard with a stone on top :)

I am so sorry for the loss of your girl. And I am glad you gave her a proper burial. Bettas , I believe, have souls/spirits & * should* be disposed of with dignity when they die.

thank you all for your condolences. It really helps me get over the fact shes gone. I am in serious shock! @o@

LOL yeah I would NEVER flush my babies down the toilet!!!!!!! :( never ever ever ever ever. I put too much love and time into raising each of my fish, they are the closest thing I have to children. LOL no, they are my children! I have a really sick one right now who has had septicemia for a while now and another with potential popeye- the one on my avatar.

I wanted to cremate her and put her ashes in a cute teenee jar but I live in a "preppy" community where everyone is noisy and stingy about their property and the police are CRAZY here... I would have to burn her outside because I have emergency sprinklers in my apt that set off even if I burn something in the microwave!!! LOLz like my cookies...
