Unhappy Found Archimedes dead this morning...

He was swimming around fine when I went to bed, but I got up and he was dead. I have checked everything and its all like it should be. It sux cause I've only had him 3 weeks. Guess I am going to go look for another betta to take his spot, since Ive already got all the money in the tank setup.

I got him at a pet store about an hour away from me, isnt a big store like petsmart or anyhting like that. Just a local store. He was a birthday present.

I'm sorry :( Do you know what your water tests look like (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate)? When was your last water change.

He could have been sick when you got him. There's just really no way to know.

i checked all that, and it was all within what it should be. He had only been in the tank 5 days, and never showed any signs of being sick or anyhting...I gues he was sick when I got him or something. I dont know...the store i got him from guarantees the bettas and a few other fish for 2 weeks....just my luck i guess...lol I was at petsmart a few days ago and they had a nice looking white veiltail, im thinking bout seeing if he is still there tomorrow.
