Oh, no!!! There are so many dying right now! I have no idea what could have happened to your plakat but I'm sure he had the best of care from you.

I'm thinkin heart attack because he was in a medicated jar the whole time.

New plan: ordering fish from breeders, which I know will be healthy.
Problem: parents wont let me.

If only you could somehow convince them that they would be a lot healthier from a breeder and therefore wouldn't die so quickly. Bettas from breeders would be more expensive, though, but worth it.

It's true. One fish that lasts a couple of years is more cost effective then having to replace them all the time. Adults get that. So sorry for the loss.

Eep. Reading this makes me freak out. I'm getting ready to leave my fishies for the weekend again. The last time I did this, a cory was dead when I came back and one of my bettas died within a day. I've spent the entire week making sure that the tanks are as squeaky clean as I can get them and that the fish are fed and happy.

Eolith, do you have someone you trust you could train to care for them while you are gone? I have a neighbor who I DEPEND upon, I don't know what I would do without him.
