Swim in Peace, Jupiter.

My very first betta, Jupiter, died on Wednesday. He got drospy for no apparent reason and there was nothing I could do except keep him warm and comfortable. On the day he died, I knew it was his time to go and held a vigil beside the hospital tank. I watched him as he took his last breath. :( We had this really strong bond in a way I cannot describe. I felt like we had a way of communication and he loved me and always wanted my attention. Even when he was dying he would somehow let me know he was happy that I was there. He stayed calm as I gave him salt baths and he completely trusted me. I really miss him and could not write this until now. Because it just hurts too much.
Swim in Peace, Jupiter. Say hi to Saturn and all my other pets that have passed. You will always be my baby boy.

P.S. the only good photo I have of him was while he was in the store. He was extremely active in his tank I could never get a good photo of him at home!

I am so sorry for your loss. I personally know how hard it is to loose a pet. Jupiter was a beautiful fish, and was lucky to have you as his owner.
