Give it time.

I lost my five wild betta babies and I'm still not over it. I honestly felt like I didn't want fish anymore.

But it passes. Hey -- why not turn the empty space into a shrimp sanctuary? Fill it with plants, a dozen or so cherry shrimp. They are fun to watch and breed readily in good water with a bit of plant cover. That way it's not empty.. and you'll have time to mourn your fishy.

Thanks guys! I guess I felt that my money was wasted because all of the tanks were full, and then suddenly they weren't. So that makes me feel like I want another one, just to have them full again. If I go looking for one, I'll likely get another red vt to give him a chance at a good life (vs someone buying him and sticking him in a cold bowl) unless I find a unique one.

It's funny that not long ago, I wondered what I would do if I started losing the bettas. Even then I felt that it wouldn't be worth it to start over especially since I have a few unique/hard to find colors. I figured that I would just do community tanks and have a lot of different little fish. But then again, I would miss the individual connection you form with each betta.

I am sorry to hear of your loss.

What I have noticed for myself is that when my heart breaks, it breaks open more widely.

May you have more and more love in your life for yourself and all other beings.
