Rip Georgia's goldfish

My poor 3 year old has woken up to tragedy as her favourite fish, darla died in the night :( not easy to explain to a 3 year old why her pet died especially knowing its my fault. He was supposed to be going to live in a pond the end of this month :( her remaining goldfish will be getting re homed and I will probably get her a betta because they can live in her small tank.

RIP little Darla. I'm so so sorry I didn't do enough for you.

Gone AWOL....

Aww! Sorry to hear. And really with all the goldfish tank advertising, stores selling goldfish bowls... It's more of media's / propaganda's fault than yours!

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

I'm sorry to hear you lost your little guy. Sena is right. "Goldfish" bowl advertising has a lot to do with it. Goldfish and bettas really do get the short end of the deal. But I'm glad to hear the remaining one will be going to a pond soon. You should stop by the pond in a year and see how he's grown. If you think the remaining one is getting lonely, you can put a mirror on one side of the tank to give him a "buddy."

Sorry for your lost:(
Betta can live in the small bowl it just need a lot of water changes like 1-50 and 1-100% water changes a week.
Good luck:)
