RIP my little stars.. Skyden and Brent. :(

I am so sad right now. I don't know how this happened. I've had them both for a little over a year now, and they've been fine, but today after water changes, they both died. I found them this morning :( They were the only fish that got water changes yesterday, so I guess I got a fluke water conditioner, it was a new brand I've never used before. I used exactly what the package said and the water temp was 74.. What could else have gone wrong? :/

I will miss my beautiful boy Skyden. His long, flowing sky blue fins and his white cloud-like body, ughhhhhhhh he was stunning. He had SOOOO MUCH personality! He would flare at anything and everything EXCEPT for me. I was just about to get him a leaf hammock at Petsmart today, guess I won't need to now. :(

Brent was such a sweet heart. His tank is at the foot of my bed, so every night for the past year, I'd sit there and he'd swim to the side closest to me and just stare at me, dance around, follow my finger.. And I may be crazy, but I would talk to him. He was my first male betta EVER. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh :(

They both COMPLETELY lost their color and are like grayish blue right now and their eyes white.. And it looks like their slime coat is peeling off of them. I don't even know what to think right now.. This is really depressing. My two favorite betta's gone in one night.. The part that makes me feel so bad is that I feel like a terrible fish owner because it looks like they suffered in the night before they died! They were both so active and healthy, this shouldn't have happened! I'm taking the loss of them both worse than I've taken any other fish. :(


RIP Brent, and RIP Skyden. My two beautiful, wonderful, personable, fiesty, fun, friendly, sweet little betta's.

I just wish there was something I could say to help you feel better. I find myself checking on my fish like 40 times after every water change. I'm just afraid that ONE time that the water won't be "right"..sigh. I wish cyber hugs worked better..but here...HUGS

I'm so sorry... I know how much you cared about them. Don't worry, they're in big waters now. Eating all the live food they want, have some babies, and all those wonderful things.
S.I.P. Brent. May you see your real Stacie in the big waters. :'D
S.I.P. Skyden. You may light up the waters with your beautiful colors. :')
