Duckie learned to fly ....

I knew something was wrong when I woke up this morning. Just knew it. I'd forgotten to place a lid over Duckie's 1g hospital tank and I just broke down when he wasn't in there. I searched frantically through the carpet and found his poor little body ... quite mummified. There was no hope of revival.


I adored this guy, though he was with me for not even a week. He was so neurotic though ... his tail was obliterated yesterday even though I did what I could for him. He just wouldn't stop destroying his tail. He also was one of those bettas that was constantly dancing and flaring and just being super energetic .... So I guess curiosity got him in the end.

Swim to the Waters of Heaven, dear one.

Woh. He bites his own fins? And I know how it feels to see a dead one on the floor because the owner forgot to put a lid on it. Same thing happened to me with my female Betta. Woke up, took 30 minutes finding her on the floor. Found her in the corner of the cabinet floor with water fried right out of her; though, lucky for me there was one more sibling in the jar.
