~*~Friedrich~*~

Friedrich passed away today. He fought hard, but he was getting old and was stressed from moving.

Freedy was a good fish. He was standoffish as bettas go, but he slowly came around, and when I was really depressed and life got messy, he gave me a reason to get up in the morning. He was a companion when I felt the most lonely I have ever been in my life. He would peek out at me from behind a leaf and make me laugh when I was down.

I'm sorry you weren't with me longer, Freedy. I wish I could have taken better care of you so that this wouldn't have happened.

Unfortunately, the ground is frozen solid, so burying him is going to be a trial. But I bought a little pine tree a few days ago, so I'll bury his altoids tin underneath that as soon as we plant it.

Thanks, guys. He was pretty dashing. ;)

He had an intestinal blockage of some kind - I'm not sure what it was, if it was parasites or some foreign object, but epsom salt and daphnia and pea all did nothing for him. I thought about doing an autopsy to find out what happened, but it didn't seem appropriate.

They can still be name buddies! Just in different... forms of existence. :/ I guess.

I'm kind of conflicted at the moment. I hate to see the tank and the new food I got him sitting there empty, it's depressing and it makes me wish more that he was still here. But I don't want to get a new fish so soon...

Aww, I'm sorry about Freedy. You'll get another one when you feel the time is right. It wouldn't be replacing Freedy, no other fish could do that.
