This is crazy... I'm sorry, Sparrow...

So as a few of you know I purchased two HMs from AB in April. It turned out the female had parasites, so it took a while to cure her. I was conditioning them both and I was just going to release the female today when I found her. :(

I've no idea why she was like that. She was swimming on the bottom of the tank, like gravity was smushing her down hard, and she couldn't swim up. I lowered her water level, took her out and put her on my desk so that Reggie (the male) couldn't bug and stress her anymore, but within half an hour she was gone.

I haven't had any betta deaths in 2 months! I think this might be starting it up again... :(

I'm sorry Sparrow... Have fun in the big rice paddy in the sky. x

Thank you both... Reggie is doing fine. Still have no idea about Sparrow's illness, though.

Aww R.I.P. Sadly, it happens. I lost 8 f bettas to parasites and finrot, They were all Walmart rescues. Out of the 9 girls I originally had, only one is alive still, Heather, and she swims happily in her own bowl like the others I have(:. Good luck with your others.

Ugh, parasites are so nasty. You don't know how many cases I've had to treat. I'm sorry about the ones you've lost. And thanks :) They're all doing really well at the moment.
