My favorite Betta Kitty just died 3 days ago. I just put her in a tiny plastic container and put her in the freezer till Spring time. I have a little pet cemetary in the yard where I can bury her with her friends. My mom's Canary, My Cockatiel, and my mom's first Crowntail Betta are all buried out there. Sorry for your loss btw.

When Turtle (my betta) died I put him in a tiny cloth drawstring pouch, about the size of the palm of a hand. Then, I dug a hole big enough to put the little pouch in without bending it. My mom and I had a sip of wine to toast him, then she poured a bit over Turtle's pouch. I gently put the soil over him. After, I put a bunch of his gravel over the grave to form a little mound. Right on top of that, his rock. It may have been to much, but I loved him. He is buried right next to this beautiful tree with long extended branches. It produces berries in the Spring so it gets really pretty with all the birds and squirrels. I think it is a good place, back with nature and other little creatures.

When it's time for my betta to die I'll go to the lakes around my home. I admire nature and believe that there's some sort of connection with all creatures including humans and nature so I'm going to place him/her afloat on a lilly pad. I believe that my animal friends are only borrowed from nature and that one day they'll have to be given back.

When my little guy dies I will get a small thin plastic box, paint it with black water proof paint and wrap him up in a small hanky. In white water proof paint I will put S.I.P Phoenix and some very kind words and sayings. And then I will go a lake and gently put him on the surface to sink in to heaven. Sorry for your loss. Swim on little guy!

For those who want to put their fish in a river - please reconsider. If your fish died from a disease, you run the risk of introducing it into the river. This in turn could affect many other fish.... (For example, Mycobacteria lives for months in water or on surfaces. It's a wasting disease that is ultimately fatal to fish.)

Cloelia - I'm sorry for your loss. And I think the idea of burying him in a flower pot is a good memorial. You'll be able to think of him every time you see the plant.

Mom has a pet cemetery around her shed outside. We have everything from snakes, iguanas, hamsters, fish, cats, etc. buried out there. I have a fish of my own buried next to my porch.

I think the flower pot idea would be good if you don't have access to outside areas.
