I know Helios had many fans on this forum... He didn't make it. I'm sorry 1fish2fish, you won't have a chance to save him. After over 5 weeks of refusing all different types of food hejust had no fight left. I noticed him having trouble swimming today and moved him to a smaller quarantine tank. Even in a small floating cup he couldn't gather the strength to go up for air. So I gave a perch and then watched him give up.
I feel like the worst owner. I've had several unnecessary casualties and each one pushes me further away from betta care. I never had the much trouble w our saltwater tanks :(
On a better note, all my other bettas are active and healthy.
