Unhappy A bitter sweet day...

I woke up to find my little delta Shy Boy had passed sometime in the night . I don't have any clue what happened. He seemed ok yesterday, he was even blowing his first ever bubble nest. Maybe spending 2 months at Petco took it's toll and it was just a matter of time. It's just sad when they last that long in awful conditions only to have them pass in a nice new home.
My VT from Chard should be arriving today so that's making me feel a little better.

Goodbye little Shy Boy. I hope you're blowing bubble nests under the rainbow bridge.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

I remember you posting about him, he was such a beautiful boy. I feel the same way about these poor fish, they go through all this neglect and wait for us to save them, only to pass in a warm clean home surrounded by love. What a nice way to go.


Rest Peacefully Shy Guy. ((hugs)) Pit.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure Chard's (now yours) bettas will brighten your day.

aww I'm so sorry for your loss, he was so pretty! :(

I have heard that sometimes pet store bettas can be a year or more old when you get them, so maybe it was just old age :/

anyway, congrats on the new betta!!!
