I've had Fantasia for almost 2 years.

Wow! That's good, considering how big he might've been he could be 4 1/2 or older.

My oldest is 5. He's going a bit blind I think but he's still flaring at the fish in the tank next to him.

Awwww! When I first bought Fantasia I had no idea that they could live as long as 7 years! The bettas I had before died usually within the week I got them because I was younger and didn't know how to properly care for them.

Same, I had mine in goldfish bowls. I kept one for 3 years in a small bowl but that was the longest. (That was when I was around 6).

Haha I do the knocks on wood thing at least 2 times per day. I'm very superstitious.

*Update* Flame is still alive, but he's slowly getting worse every day. :( I'm doing daily water changes and finding fins everywhere! He's also getting much more pinecony where his scales are almost standing straight up. I feel so bad when I look at him. I want to end his suffering but I can't bring myself to euthanize him. He looks at me like he's so sad and depressed. :'(

Maybe talk with iheartmyfishies. Her Bernard was such a nice little fellow,(i'd met him a few times in person), and he did the same. Looked fine but slowed, then got the pine cone look, then she went on a two day vacation and came back and there was blood all in the sand. He died while she was away, but maybe you could find the source. Good lick little Flame, we love you!
