well oceanist was in a vase (for one night) so i could clean his tank and remove the fries out of the 5 gal to put oceanist in, he was too close to the heater, his water got too hot
it is my fault again, this is my 5th betta gone under a month, so it leaves me with 3 fishies (not including my fry) this is his story:
one day we went to petco, i picked up strawberry my brother pick up oceanist (he wasn't mine at first). so i found this solid white male DT i just had to get him, but i had to let him go (my dream fish)
so i let my brother take oceanist. got him home, and you know the drill. he cared for oceanist for one week then started neglecting, cold water, no weekly cleans, not much food. he had been like that for a month, but i and my dad fed him for a week (or more memory fades). got him ready to spawn with strawberry, of course it failed. removed him, i felt bad he had to go back to misery again
, but i didn't own him. so of course i put him back. not even a week later, he gained popeye. told my brother give him care, he has a diesease atleast it is not fatal. he said ok, but he didn't do anything
. he been like that for a month. and i had a plan first i took him to give a little care, and i will ask for him
so i took him in for awhile ..... and guess what?! he just gave him to me
i don't mean to be like "gahh another fish" i was furious that he gave him up!!
he didn't care about oceanist. so i took good care and his popeye lowered down, one time soo low he looked like he had no popeye, but it grew back not as large when i got him. my dad and brother blamed ME for his popeye, since "oh you moved him in too many tanks at one time" i said it couldn't be that it only infects when there is dirty water i said. my dad said he gave him his special water (extra clean used for salt and freshwater mostly salt
), but he didn't clean the tank weekly. i said that it was MY BROTHER'S RESPONSABILITY, NOT YOURS!
i fumed at him, my dad only cared for him because he loved oceanist beauty
and they continued to blame me, i ignored it. months and months later, oceanist never got the pop eye to leave
felt bad. but you know what happened?
...... he got a female and male this very day. i got pissed off it was like oceanist was nothing, and he just adores his new fish. well not for long, he dosen't clean the tank weekly but he keeps up with the food.
but now oceanist has passed, and my brother still dosen't care
even though it was my fault .... he's released of that diesease, am not very sad i feel relieved, not that because he dead, i mean that now he could have hid 20x20 vision that he lost here.
the failed spawn:
i'll miss you little buddy
