I've been having some bad luck lately...

Hey all! Sorry I haven't been around much... I've been having a string of bad luck with my fish, among other things, and I am supremely stressed out!

I lost the baby betta I rescued from Petco, I've lost 2 girls in the sorority to dropsy like symptoms. I had 2 HM girls arrive from a seller on Aquabid DOA, which was awful, luckily the seller was super nice and sent 2 replacements who arrived healthy!

I had something happen with the heaters in 3 of my tanks, I don't know if there was a power surge or what but when I got home on Monday after spending the night at the boys, the temps in the tanks were well over 90 and all of the fish were dead. I lost my gold metallic HM breeding pair, a fancy dragon VT pair I had together, and a rescue red CT.

and after a long fight, I also lost my rescue Holden...

Well it has to be worse before it gets better. Lol I hope this bad luck streak ends. End the bad luck streak. Start a bad luck strike! I had an aqueon mini heater from petco that took my betta's small little tank to close around 95ish! I thought my thermometer was flipping out! I saw his symptoms and was worried so I took his temp. My heart is pumping fast just thinking about it lol

Please take good care of yourself -- some hot tea and a little chocolate do wonders for me when I'm feeling stressed. And extra vitamin C.

I can say I kind of get where you're coming from. I've lost my two favourites in as many days and have another one barely hanging on. No idea what is wrong with him but he's a fighter. Hopefully your luck will turn around! Keep strong and best of luck to you.
