o___0 step away from the ledge, and take this in stride. Learn from the mistakes you make and get back on that horse. I followed your Skolly on the forums and I don't think it was anything you could have done, some bettas are not sold in proper health to make that transition to a new tank. Clean your tank, test your water, go to petco and wander around the fish area fora few hours (I get lost there all the time) and when you feel ready, get yourself another betta.

You don't have to forget your old bettas, but don't let the mistakes you may or may not have made stop you from making another betta happy.

(Also Walmart/Petco/Petsmart have 14 day warranties on all their fish if they die in that time frame. Just bring the fish back and a sample of the water for them to test before you get another one)


GOOD LUCK!

I really, really suggest you check into your water BEFORE you buy any more fish. You have to find out why none of them are lasting longer then a week. I'm sorry about Skolly. :(

I agree! test the water before you add anything to it! Clean out the tank and all the decorations with bleach (1 part bleach 9 parts water) then again with vinegar! Let everything air dry! Don't give up, just take the time to do things the right way!

I've had random Betta deaths too. Himatsu lasted 3 days, no symptoms, just died one day. Then I bought 4 HM Butterfly males from the same Petco, all 4 died by the next morning. I was furious! HM cost a fortune from what I'm used to. I have not bought a single thing from that store.
Idk why it happens, but it does. Lost two to worms/dropsy. One from a random recent freak eating boycott.
So glad my other 10 are very happy and fit. I actually thought they died because I didn't name them in time, lol!
Same thing can happen to other fish like Tetra or Angels. Some fish just aren't fit to make it sadly.
