My tommy is suddenly gone with not much explanation for his illness, as he was fine just a few days ago.
I left him for a few days while I was out of town, which I have done many times before without any complications at all. However, when I returned yesterday, he appeared to have somehow come down with dropsy (he had already started pineconing).
I started treating him immediately, but alas he died last night around midnight. I am trying not to blame myself for his sudden onset illness, and I am in the dark about what happened. He was very sensitive to becoming constipated despite having a good feeding schedule, so perhaps that had something to do with it.
He was, and still is, the sweetest and most fun-loving betta I've owned to this day.
I will always miss him.
