Just wanted to let anyone who knows me that I might be taking some time off to mourn the loss of Rosso. He was my last male betta. He didn't look sick, he didn't suffer from a heater malfunction, he was acting like his normal self (stubborn and would zip into a hidey hole when there was a visitor).
I understand that I have had him approximately 14 months and I cannot know his exact age at the time of his purchase but he was my first betta and it kills me inside that I lost him. I feel like it's my fault somehow. I don't know if I could be taking better care of my bettas.
I am wondering if I will be able to appreciate males after losing two of them in such a short time span. I cannot even process writing his memorial yet.
