Unhappy He didn't make it :(

Came home from running some errands and Bait was lifeless at the bottom of his bowl :( He was doing good too, he even ate 2 worms this morning for me. :(

It is going to be weird not cleaning out his bowl tonight...it's only been a few days but got to be part of the routine...

At least he is in a better place.

Darn Petco, for doing that to so many innocent fish :(

Sorry for your loss. But, at least you gave him a good home for a couple of days instead of in a cold plastic cup.

Thank you all so much for your guidance!!!!!

I will be going back tomorrow for my refund...he had a 30 day guarantee...whi are they kidding???

The plan is to get my daughter some guppies and maybe a few ghost shrimp for her 10 gallon....but don't be surprised if I am back here asking for advice on yet another pathetic Betta, LOL!

When I was there picking up Bait there were a LOT of King Bettas near death...how different are the requirements of those compared to "regular" bettas??

They need at least 5 gallons (really, because theyre so biiggg!) to live and grow, as well as a bit more food. Maybe a pellet or two extra, or some extra worms :)

That Petco shouldn't keep bettas if so many are near death. I mean ethically it's just wrong but it's bad business too, to get in stock that you can't sell 'cause it's DEAD!

I'm so sorry, Bait was a little fighter and he tried hard. But at least he had the comfort of knowing someone out there cared for him a lot.

Aw im so sorry to hear this. But you did awesome and you sacrificed so much for a little guy you hardly got to know. Maybe he was doing well to show off to you because you made him a happy fish, but the damage had been done. Seriously though, great job, it warms the heart having stories like these :)

Yeah, maybe he wanted to give back something to you for all the care so he did his best to look well and do well. I think he really was happy those last few days, Ianthe.
