I'm sorry for your loss. I bet you gave him the best life he'd ever had, and that's what matters. :)

You mentioned he turned silvery? You can check out Sakura's sticky on the Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies section on a mystery disease that turns bettas gray and usually results in a sudden death.

I saw that thread but this was not it. His color was a uniform shiny silver overlay blended with the original colors. It looked quite ethereal and different from that mystery disease.

That's odd. Maybe it was some kind of bacterial infection. I'm not very good at those kind of things. I'm sorry I couldn't help.

He really was a nice fish, though. I like the coloring on his body, and he was a lovely shade of blue.

I'm so sorry for your loss. We get so attached to these little guys, whether they're fancy show bettas, or just your average pet store betta.

I think he was beautiful!

Well said. I couldn't agree more. Thank you.

So true!

My brother in law takes care of a betta that is supposedly their 3 year old daughter's pet. One day he was trying to talk tough saying something like "Whatever, it's just a fish". My sister looked at him with a raised eyebrow and said "You LOVE that fish". He looked sheepishly around, then laughed and said "I know. I DO!" ha ha ha .. He's a big tough guy in his 40's that shouldn't admit he loves a little blue veiltail named Yeyah by his 3 year old daugher.

We can't help it! :)
