Bettas Can Be Heartbreakers...

So on Monday I went to Petsmart to get can food and ended up coming home with 3 bettas (of course) one gorgeous blue/orange veiltail male, a gorgeous blue multi veiltail female and a poor heartbreaking sight of a betta...

He was covered nose to tail in ich, his dorsal fin and ventrals were virtually gone and his caudal and anal fins didn't look much better! His cup was FILTHY and I knew that he probably wouldn't make it, but he was trying to live so I decided to help him.

Unfortunately when I got home from dinner last night he was gone... It's killing me that I couldn't do more for him...

I am going out to Petsmart in a bit to get a new fish in his place. I don't want to get a healthy fish, I want to find one that needs my help as much as he did, and I want to save him this time!!

RIP Soulja Fishy, I'm sorry I couldn't do more...

I'm sorry to hear about Soulja Fishy but it's wonderful that he could live out his last few days in comfort with somebody caring for him rather than on a pet store shelf in a filthy cup. It's great that you're planning to rescue another sick fishy. Good luck!

I don't want to get on your case or anything, because your heart's in the right place, but aren't you concerned that you might be sending Petsmart the wrong message?

I got that little guy for free, and I brought him and the receipt with me today, because there's a 14 day guarentee, I got the new boy I got today for free as well. So petsmart has not made any money on the sick fish
