Ich won

Today is a very sad day in my house, as I woke up to a lifeless Betta. I was treating him for Ich but he was literally covered in it. I thought he was getting better as he was acting like it and the ich was falling off, but there must have been something I missed. He was nearly four years old. Maybe his age couldn't handle that type of thing? I don't know what happened, but I am very sad that I lost him. I did every thing I could. Maybe the Ich was internal? Could that happen? It sucked to wake up to Red just laying at the bottom, lifeless. He will be missed. He was a character. I took a picture of his deceased body because it looks funny. I know everyone looks funny when they die but maybe it has to do with the reason he died.

:( I'm so sorry, it's possible because he was old ich took more of a toll on him than on a healthy betta in its prime. I hope Red rests in peace.

Yes, it was ich. He had white spots, a lot of them, before he died. They started disappearing and I thought he was getting better but apparently I was wrong. =((
