My awesome plakat, Chubetta, jumped out of his tank (through a 1" gap) and I wasn't there to save him. He was so cool to watch.
I was always impressed with the flash of the veil tails, but no more it's Plakats from now on. Spunky little fish.
I just lost a betta yesterday. Sapphire had a spoiled rotten kind of life. No little cups for him, he had a 5 gallon planted home. I miss him very much. I am glad there are other people who understand how it is to love and care for a special little fish, or some of my bigger ones too. The fish that get into good homes are far too few. My new one I just got is not the same, but I will still love and care for him as my "office buddy".
So very sorry for your loss..I know how you feel..I was completely heartbroken at the loss of my first fish. These lil guys sure have a trmendous impact in our lives..Its such a good feeling to know his last moments were with someone who loved him so deeply..and not in a cold cup..Thoughts and Prayers to yu:)
I just lost my boy... I had him over 2 years, and it feels like even longer... We went through so much together... It is because of him that I went from a 1 gallon tank to a 10 gallon tank, and even got him buddies so he wouldn't get bored. I spent so much time, money, and love on him... I feel so guilty since he likely got a bacterial infection from his tank because I was too busy to perform maintenance... I will always love you my boy <3....... upload pics
