Thanks Latriana and OldLady.
I am sad to tell you that my darling V has gone up to the big Fish Bowl in the sky. :( Last night when I came home from work he was laying lifeless.
I cried. He was my first fish and I really did love him so much. It's very sad to see him go but at th same time I'd glad he's resting and not struggling like he was the last week to even swim. I don't know what happened to him at all. Maybe he got an infection or maybe it was old age or maybe his water was contaminated. I'm' not sure.
My sister told me to get a new fish but I just want my old fish back. :( When I am ready I may get a new betta but I have no clue whether to get a heater or not this time. What do you guys think?
Should I toss his aquarium or keep it (2.5 gallon) in case it was contimated?
I am very sad today but also am appy to know my little guy is resting in peace and not struggling.
He really did bring me a lot of joy and was my buddy for over 2.5 years.
RIP little Vi.

Did she survive?
What is the lifespan of betta fish?
