Why Skylight? I wish i knew what happened...

Skylight passed away rather suddenly last night... I suspect he may have had a birth defect, or his organs just failed fro his picky eating... He would only ever eat one, maybe two small blood worms at a feeding, and always ignored the pellets, even the teensy ones... He never thrived...

I walked into my room last night/this morning (it was just after 2 am) and saw him having trouble swimming... But by the time i had him cupped it was too late, he passed away before even hitting the water in the cup. He was ever so slightly pineconed as well... *sigh* I am so sorry my beautiful marble baby...










I am so sorry baby, please forgive me...

So sorry to see such a cute little guy pass. I've found my cellophane-type bettas to be a lot less thicker through the body than other colours.

One thought however, is that he might have had internal parasites. I had a betta that was never quite healthy (always thin and quick to bloat), who started pineconing one day, and it turned out to be worms.

Just thought I'd put that out there in case something similar happens in the future to you or anyone else. It's always sad losing a fish, particularly when it's unexpected
