My betta died 2 days ago.
We only had him for 8 months. Last week he got velvet, then it seemed everything went downhill from there. Although, I was doing the recommended water changes and giving him medicine he got worse. He contracted swim bladder and fin rot set in very rapidly (all in one week). We did everything we could to help him. But on Friday morning my little Leonardo died in his quarrantine tank. It was awful to see him suffer, my husband and I feel so defeated. We tried everything.
We miss Leo terribly. He was so cute, we had live plants in his tank, one day we got him a new plant and he kept swimming between his old favorite and his new one as though he couldn't decide which one he liked better.
We kept his tank on top of our entertainment center. We ended up watching Leo more than we watched tv. Its strange how a little fish can bring so much joy and leave such emptiness when he's gone.
We love you Leo and we miss you. You will never leave our hearts.
