He was a beautiful Betta who had iridescent colors that reminded me of the moon. Hence his name :)
I had him almost two years after falling for him at Petco. Unfortunately he had a thing for the filter intake grill, and even after I sewed very fine pantyhose to cover it and limit the flow, he would still go up to it and lean. Even if the filter/flow was off. This lead to tattered fins most of the time. I finally figured out a system that worked well. Which was that the filter was only on if I could watch him and make sure he wasn't leaning on the grill. And very often water changes and water tests as a result of limited filtering. There was nothing wrong with the water quality when he died, and his fins were finally getting back to where they were. I don't know why he died and it makes it worse

I'm going to miss those eyes that always followed me

He is beautiful. In his pictures and in the waters under the rainbow bridge.

I'm sorry you lost him.
