I'm so sorry Hurley :(

Hurley, you're dead and I know its my fault. I feel like the worst betta mommy today. I assumed everything was ok when I went to bed last night and woke up to you dead at the bottom of the tank.
You were an awesome betta. My only giant HMPK. You seemed to enjoy your 10G tank although you did hide quite a bit in caves and logs.
Just the last couple of days you didn't come get food and just stayed hidden in your log. But I didn't think much of it and figured you'd get your appetite back soon. You had good color and otherwise acted fine.
But then I decided to have you stay in the 20G while I get it ready for my sorority. That was my big mistake. I should have put you back in the 10G when I noticed you were just hiding in your log once I put you in there.
Maybe I hadn't dosed the tank right with water conditioner. I really should have started completely over instead of using older water. I thought I was holding the "cycle". I feel like an idiot now and I'm scared of large tanks.
Hurley you were beautiful and I let you down. I hope you enjoyed your time while you were with me....
