Cant speak for Moonshadow... but for me, it's heartbreaking when one dies. makes me think of all the things I may have done wrong. ie. "did I acclimate him too fast?" "did I move him around too much?"... sometimes I feel like a fish murderer when a sick fish dies.
on the other hand it's a joy to see one come back to life ^_^

Whiskey I got about a week and a half ago, his fins were covered in small holes, he had fin rot, sticky fins, had lost a lot of color and was barely moving in his filthy cup. Now he is a whole new fish.

I will rescue bettas that are in really bad shape, sometimes stores will let me have them for free or discounted other times I do pay for them. I nurse them back to health and then adopt them out to new homes! I've been doing it for over a year now. It doesn't make me money or anything, since there are no adoption fees, but it is sooooo worth it!

I agree, I recently lost 2 rescues (SIP Tequila and Ducky) and it broke my heart, even though I only had them for a day or 2, I know sometimes nothing can be done but I still have to try!
