I've killed too many bettas and am venturing away from this hobby or just taking a very long break and hope to see you guys again later. This is a final goodbye. I planned to log off a few hours ago but just had to say a final Goodbye. If any if you ever want to talk to me you can contact me at Texanbettas@yahoo.com
. Goodbye guys and you will forever be in my hearts and I'll miss the inspiration and spirit this forum had
Mo, let me tell you a story. My dad set up a 75 gallon salt water aquarium. He built the stand, and bought it piece by piece. He went to PA to get special gravel. He ordered live rock. He hand picked each fish one at a time. Oh he loved that tank and knew everything about taking care of them. He was for lack of a better word an expert. But one day a disease hit his tank and wiped out the whole lot in a couple days. About $1000 dollars worth of fish gone. But you know what he took a long breath and said it was good while it lasted.
So he cleaned his tank got new gravel and new rock, and started over. You see in the end sometimes poo happens. And even an expert can't stop it but it's no reason to give up. It's like the old italian proverb goes "where there is life there is hope". Don't lose hope in yourself and don't give up your passion. If you must take a break to see it do so but don't give up.
Until we meet again, may joy find you where ever you are!*hugs* ^_^
