I'm back!

Hi guys!

It's been a long time since I was last here, as a bunch of varied personal dramas cropped up and just kept coming, but now I am back after my long hiatus. :) I probably won't post as regularly as I used to, but I'll still be doing more than I have been in recent times. Glad to see so many new names on the forums - hopefully some of the older ones are still around too! :)

Bomba

Wow. I saw you had posted in the rant thread and was thinking there's a name I haven't seen around for ages!

That's a shame to hear. Is it just old age or something else?

I don't know. :( No pet shop bettas around here last more than 2 years, which these guys are, so I'm not entirely surprised, but it is exactly the same disease that killed my other fish - broad, unidentifiable symptoms.

Yeah I got right out of splendens. I found all mine only lasted 2-2.5 years maximum, no matter how good the conditions I kept them in.

It's too heartbreaking to have fish that you invest so much time and love into, only to lose them.

Hello, just wanted to say, I love your name. Would I be correct in assuming you're a Cats fan? XD

It really is. I'm very sad to lose both - Odysseus is a very special fish as he was the last one I bought from my favourite LFS before it closed, and I was given a huge discount despite his ridiculous beauty, and Artemis is special as the last member of my sorority. Trouble is, I just can't break the addiction. :p

Hello Front! Yes, I have. :) However, because of the generality of the symptoms, no one is any the wiser. :(
