RIP Soren, my little fighter. <3

RIP, my sweet Soren. I wish I could have had you longer, raised you to the handsome adult you should have been. Wherever you are under that rainbow bridge, I hope you're happy. <3

My little purple baby Soren died this morning. I don't know what caused it - it might have just been from stress. He went through a lot in his short life, and quite honestly I'm surprised he lived as long as he did.
My cousin, who lives in another state, bought him for me as a Christmas present from a Petco near her house. He was in one of those little 'baby betta' cups. She kept him for a few weeks and made sure he wasn't sick before shipping him out to me. The shipping company, of course, decided to lose him for a few days, and when I finally got him his heat pack was ice cold and he looked shaken up. I kept him in my 10g community where he had lots of hiding places, and things started to look good - he ate and started to interact with other fish. I don't know what got him, but I don't blame him for giving up - he went through so much and hung on strong for as long as he could, and that's all I could ask for.
RIP, Soren. I love you. <3

I never did get a picture of him. Oh well - he probably wouldn't have liked the camera anyways. cx

Just lost another one, as well - Fallen, a green CT boy. I got him at Petsmart earlier today after I found him behind everyone else when I was buying some filter cartridges for my sorority. He had dropsy, and really badly; was laying at the bottom of his cup with a tummy twice the size he was, eyes bulging from his head, and his scales sticking strait up - I convinced the manager to let me take him for free to see if I could do anything for him. I knew he wouldn't make it, but I didn't want him to die unnoticed behind so many other fish. I kept him in a small one gallon wrapped in a heated blanket with a little leaf hammock for him to sleep on until he passed (I didn't bother trying to treat his dropsy - it looked too far along and at the time I just wanted him to be loved. >:c ). The little guy was really trying hard to stay here - when I went up to the tank he lifted his head from the hammock and wiggled around. I don't blame him for going, I'm just glad he was able to live his last hours in comfort. RIP, Fallen <3
