I got Colt McCoy Fish in October 2009; he was my first and only betta. He got sick a few times early on, but we battled through and for the last year he has been so healthy. Then over the last few days he took a quick turn for the worst; he wouldn't eat and he hid in a corner. Despite my best efforts, he passed away last night.
Colt, you were a wonderful fish! He ate bloodworms out of my hand and loved to watch all the activity going on around him. If I surprised him he would flare out so big, and then once he realized it was me he would wiggle all around (probably hoping for food!). I will miss you so much Colt - you were a part of my little family.
