RIP Paarthurnax

After my failed attempt at breeding Paarthunax (when I was going to do VTXDT geno), he was never the same. He just gloomed about all the time. I tried different tank sizes, different amounts of plants...fake and real....even letting him look at my girls. He was just never happy again after that. He began biting his tail and I treated him three times (QT for quick fin re-growth). Eventually he would just lay at the bottom of the tank and..well....sulk. It was really depressing and I honestly wanted to cry for my baby every day. He lost all of his color no matter what I tried to do. He declined food. I even started driving out to PetCo to get NLS for him...which he also declined. He declined blood worms...and brine shrimp... There was no form of Ich, any parasites, or even SB. He passed just this last week, but I just got out of my depression enough to post this RIP for him. He was a beautiful fish....I'm glad that I was able to own him for as long as I did....I only wish there was something I could've done to keep him. In his memory, I'll post his best picture....

RIP Paarthurnax. I love you. I'll miss you. </3 :'(

Thank you...I still have a betta that I've rescued before he passed....the rescue is doing really well...but this still depressed me to no end. Every time I see his pic I start to cry. This has hit me so hard that I decided not to try breeding again until next month, after I move. When he started laying at the bottom of the tank, I knew he was going to pass...I kept waiting to not have him come see me when I talked to him...and when he didn't...all I could do was cry....
