To not want to remove the name of a betta from your sig? Lavatail, our flareboy and class betta clown recently passed away. I don't want to remove his name from the role call, it's like admitting that he's danced his last fishy dance. He was the second betta we got after the failed experiment with ADFs from Christmas 2011, and he is still holds the "Biggest Personality" title over all the bettas we now have, which kinda like rabbits, have multiplied.
I'd like to think based on the feistiness and jumping tendencies of the baby betta that we brought home a month ago, that he might have inherited some of Lavatail's spunk. Baby's tank was right next to Lavatail's first aid tank for LT's last two weeks.
