Thank you everyone for all your help.

This morning unfortunately, little Guppy lost his fight. I would like to imagine he is now swimming happily in that big rice paddy in the sky, where he has all the space he wants and unlimited pallets falling from the sky.

My husband and I are very sad, even the our cat Minou seems sad, even though she never really got along with her "little brother".

There have been many tears but it is good to know that we tried everything we could. I suppose it was just his time.

Your support has been a huge help through this ordeal, and the through the single year that we have had the little guy with us. He has touched many lives and was dearly loved by many. I most of all will always miss him.

He died peacefully as I was cradling him near the surface because he could not reach the surface on his own to breath. I am glad he did not die alone.

He was such a tiny little boy, had a world of love and a soul larger than life.

I just went to the home page and the message on the left says Guppy is in this months photo contest, I think I submitted that photo two months ago and remember wondering why it never showed up in the last one ... The irony.

Sorry to hear Guppy didn't make it.....he had been through a lot and you right along with him! I sometimes wish that fish had the lifespan of a dog or cat....especially bettas with their incredible personalities that make them so endearing. It's hard to let a favorite one go. Take comfort in the fact that you truly did all you could.....and, when you're ready, perhaps bring another lucky betta into your life.
