hello betta, goodbye betta

I bought a really pretty male betta yesterday at Petland Discounts. His name is Sunshine. Today I came into my room and Sunshine quickly swims up to the top of the tank and half of his fins fall off. I couldn't believe my eyes. He started shaking really bad, and died a few seconds later. It broke my heart. Just a month ago, my betta Rusty died from gill fungus and swim bladder disease =[ RIP Rusty and Sunshine. I guess I have bad luck with fish.

Yeah they just fell off and sank to the bottom.. and his remaining fins started bleeding. I don't think he could have caught them on anything in the tank because I specifically watched out for the decor that might hurt their fins. =[

I dont think you have bad luck. I just think the fish were just,"Without a blessing." Try getting another fish after him.
