Veil the simple walmart blue/pink veil tail.

My boss buys the what he feels are the saddest/ugliest bettas from Walmart for the university to teach freshman how to set up a behavioral study and to give the bettas a chance at a home. We give them out to students after the studies are complete. I ended up with the two that no one wanted.

Veil (original, right?) was a last-pick Walmart baby with the common blue body with pink caudal fin coloration. Lived 1.5 years but was lost to a sudden onset of a mystery disease. Loved wedging himself in between lucky bamboo roots and was the calmest of my four boys. The world won't notice it's another what most of you would call "boring" blue veil tail short but my world is a whole lot small all of the sudden.

His brother, also a last-pick "boring" red veil tail from the same Walmart at the same time, doesn't know what to do with the extra space. Through our loss he now gets to be able to reign in his own 10 gallon. I took out the divider after staring at an empty tank half for a few days, but he seems to stay on his original side, only periodically checking out where his brother used to be. Weird.

What are you even talking about? The dead one or the perfectly healthy one?
Please don't carelessly suggest antibiotics to people. They are not candy and reckless antibiotic use is what has caused a tremendous problem of resistance in both the fish world and the human world.

Right, I forgot to get a water temperature and a diet. I'll just go run out and buy some.
Really?
The summer break from school has clearly not been kind to you.

There's no reason for this ChoclateBetta. Cyan is just probably stressed from what happened. Just calm down.
Cyan, what were the symptoms? Any odd coloring? Behavior changes? Or did he just die? Might be TB if there aren't any symptoms. I'm so sorry he died. S.I.P. Veil

@the immature child: But certainly not your grammar and definitely not your maturity.
A simple "I'm sorry for your loss" would have been sufficient.
I hope you're proud of yourself - you took someone's loss as an opportunity to show off and be the opposite of helpful.

@Lebron: TB is certainly a possibility. He had changed color to a silvery tone when we dealt with some fin rot two months before his death. Other than his shortened fins, which were in the process of regrowing, and his silver color he was perfectly healthy (active, healthy appetite, etc) until he decided not to eat one day and died the next day's night. Very sudden indeed.
