I love mythology of many different kinds. I was going to name him Dante but I decided I liked Virgil better for him XD Maybe that means he'll be able to get by on his own.

I'm trying to do a good job! I just hope he works with me. All of petsmart's collection of fish to choose from were very small and not very brightly colored. I just hope over time he gets better. But he was the most active one out of the all, very feisty and did not stop moving in reaction to what was going on around him at any point in time. So I think I chose a good one as far as those things go.

I'd always taken foregranted that my fish would just live. I didn't realize so much would be at stake.

I think you're doing a great job so don't worry, Astrid. Even the most experienced fishowners who've been keeping fish for decades lose some to disease. It doesn't help that the conditions our pet store bettas are kept in lend themselves to disease. I think after a few days with you, Virgil will color up beautifully.

Virgil ate! And his color is perking up some, and I'm doing a partial water change today so I think he has a good chance to survive.

Thanks so much for the help! I'll make sure to be back here if there's ever a problem.

this place is fun to just browse! you learn so much just by browsing, get to see some beautiful fish, and get to talk about quirks your bettas have, or ways to make them happier! :D
