Unhappy Its all my fault

I feel so bad.. i felt Tabasco's water and it was so cold so i put a lamp by his tank and left.. and the room temperature got so hot that his water got too hot and he died. i feel like such a monster. if only i didn't put the lamp next to his tank he would still be alive right now. i pray he did not suffer. I'm really distraught over this right now...

I know how you feel. I lost my favourite female betta yesterday and she meant the world to me.

I'm so sorry. I know what a horrible feeling it is to know that you lost a betta because of something you did or didn't do. Last month I lost my first betta Ganymede; the filter intake cover must have come off and he got sucked in. It was so awful and I couldn't stop beating myself up for not checking ocassionally to make sure it was secure. I'm still not over it. :(

But the important thing is to know that accidents do happen. As horrible as the experiences are, we must learn from them.

Sorry for your loss.

Try not to beat yourself up too much over this, I know its hard, But you were only trying to do what your betta needed to thrive..
