RIP Sheik, my first betta...

Although I only had him for 2 weeks, I grew very attached to this little guy. He was my very first betta, and he was such a spunky little guy! Whenever I came in, he would dart right over to the side of the tank and stare at me, flare at my fingers, etc. And he was pretty... such long, pretty crowntail fins with those gorgeous black spots that made him stand out. I know he is in a better place now, and free from his suffering... I only wish I'd had more time to spend with him in this world.

I will never forget you, Sheik. May you rest in your well-deserved heaven and know that you were loved.

What a beauty. I'm sorry for your loss. Sheik is lucky to have had a good owner in this world.

Thank you jeremywadejunior. I'm hoping to get another betta soon, but I don't trust Petco. Luckily, I've found a couple aquarium specialty stores around the city and hopefully I can get a healthier betta from one of them. I'm really sad about Sheik, though... :(

Thanks guys. I am upset about it, but I am glad he isn't suffering anymore. It was heartbreaking to see him lose that spark he had. :(

I am still planning to try my hand at betta ownership. I am going to give myself a couple days to regroup and then start looking for a new fishy friend.
