Failed Rescue

Well, perhaps I should hold back on getting another rescue until I can successfully care for the two betta's that I've got who are actually healthy. Lost another of my pretty boys this morning, in a very similar way to the last rescue I had. I suppose it was better than spending his last days in a cup or peace lily vase. I never officially named you, but I was going to give you the name Leomhann (Leovan/Lay oh van), which is Scottish Gaelic for Lion. You were the King, that much was obvious in the short time I had you.

It appeared to have been a fungal issue that I caught too late to save him, that accompanied with some trouble acclimating to new water/environment. It was all just too much for him, it seemed.

Hey... There is no such thing as a failed rescue. You cannot catch everything early :) you did good.

Sorry you lost him..

I'm just sorry I couldn't help him more, but thanks for that :) Right now I've got 3 boys, and they're all doing well, so I suppose that's good enough for me!

I agree, no rescue is a fail, even if they dont make it. You accomplished giving him a good environment, love & care which he never would have gotten if he'd passed at the store.

Sorry for your loss..
