Sparkie- The betta who refuses to die

He doesn't move around much anymore and when he does he struggles to go far. He mainly just chills out at the surface doing nothing at all :( I feel bad for him because he doesn't seem or look very happy these days. I wish I could help him :(






when I first got him over 4 years ago

Oh he's so pretty though... I'm sorry I guess just make him comfortable because that's all you can do. I don't think he's suffering.

i wish i could lower the water so he doesn't have to stay at the top all the time. its way too far for him to travel up for air all the time. I haven't seen him leave the top for a few weeks now :( I gave him some floating plants to rest on if he wants. I've been wanting to move him to one of the divided 5g's so he has less veritcal and more horizontal but my 4 new guys are in there going through quarentine/monitering.

A few more pics from today

no distress forsure, not sure about pain though. He's got two tumors on his side that are growing bigger. He still eats like a pig and gets really excited at feeding times. He's my little buddy and I wish I could have him for 4 more years but I think his time is near.

or he could just be pissed at me that he was my only one for so long now he has 7 other males to compete for attention with lolol

He really does look like an old dude. His color is still really good though and as long as he's eating, that's a good thing. He's still adorable.

Awww sounds like you've helped him to have a wonderful long life. If there's a Great Aquarium in the sky, I'm sure he'll be waiting happily there for you to arrive and give him a snack. :)
