I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! But at least you were able to make him happy and warm for the last few days instead of suffering in a little bowl. And I hope you new fish works out better for you!

I am so sorry! I had a fish die from that :(. I did water changes and used Melafix which is basically the same as BEttafix. Unfortunately, one of the threads on this site said that melafix and bettafix can actually be bad for them, so it is good you stopped using it. I think that you made him as comfy as possible in his "hospice".

I really am sorry that your betta died. I went into the Petco nearest me, and I had never seen such sad bettas there. Their water was relatively clean, but everybody had clamped fins, and a few were dying and laying sideways. I loved this HMDT, it was purple/magenta. He was dying, and my mom yelled at me for even suggesting getting him. Oh well. Can't wait to see your new guy!

Ugh I know, when I go to petco I can't even look at the fish without my eyes stinging. My new betta is my avatar, his name is Bellino, which means beautiful and lovely in Italian. Italian just fit him because of his mustache lol.

Hehe, he is very pretty! Did you get him from Petco? All of my bettas came from Petco... where the pets go, and the bettas die. Bleh. You know that like, less than half of those fish don't come out?

I got mine on Aquabid, he is from Thailand.

I can't even imagine the number of bettas who have died in their "care". It is so sad.

Good luck!

He is such a cutie fish! Love the marbling. :D And ugh, at least I didn't see any dead bettas. Which is a miracle, because some of them were reeeeeally sick. And how old is Bellino?

He is probably about four months now, because on the auction it said he was 3.5 months. I love his marbling too, ever since I got him he has just been getting bluer and bluer!
