Why Skylight? I wish i knew what happened...

Skylight passed away rather suddenly last night... I suspect he may have had a birth defect, or his organs just failed fro his picky eating... He would only ever eat one, maybe two small blood worms at a feeding, and always ignored the pellets, even the teensy ones... He never thrived...

I walked into my room last night/this morning (it was just after 2 am) and saw him having trouble swimming... But by the time i had him cupped it was too late, he passed away before even hitting the water in the cup. He was ever so slightly pineconed as well... *sigh* I am so sorry my beautiful marble baby...










I am so sorry baby, please forgive me...

There was nothing you could do to save that fishy :( I'm so sorry for your loss. He was a very unique and beautiful fish. At least he lived with someone like you! <3 RIP little guy.

So sorry to see such a cute little guy pass. I've found my cellophane-type bettas to be a lot less thicker through the body than other colours.

One thought however, is that he might have had internal parasites. I had a betta that was never quite healthy (always thin and quick to bloat), who started pineconing one day, and it turned out to be worms.

Just thought I'd put that out there in case something similar happens in the future to you or anyone else. It's always sad losing a fish, particularly when it's unexpected

I'm sorry for your loss as well. I know it must be hard because he went before his time. but at least he had you to take care of him while he was here!
