Rule in Heaven, Saturn

Q. Why do Siamese Fighting Fish rule?
A. Because they're Betta!

Rule in Heaven, Saturn.
I am so sorry you didn't make it. :(

Saturn was a beautiful dark blue half-moon betta with a dark blue and red tail. Within a week of purchasing him, he faded in colour. I assumed it was stress from the change in environment and thought I would wait to see if he improved.
A week later he was not moving much at all, and I was going away for a week.
So I moved him to a hospital tank and went to my LFS to get advice. They told me he had an internal infection and gave me antibiotics for him and live black worms to feed all my bettas.
He passed away two days ago, about two weeks after beginning treatment. It was too late. :( I will miss him. I only had him for 4 weeks but he really touched my heart.

I have another one that looks almost exactly like him, which I believe is his brother. They came at the same time to the store from the same breeder. Can brothers have different tail types though? Because Mars is a double-tail. See pic. :)

yeah they can have differnt tail types from the same spawn, depending on the genes of course, but usualy if two tails are mixed theres some of each.
cute names btw, do you like planets? :)

So theres a huge chance they're brothers. Well thats comforting to know, that I do have a piece of Saturn with me.

And yup, I am really into space, so is my partner. He actually named my first one, Jupiter and Saturn. He is really sad that Saturn is gone because he chose him. :( I know we are 23 years old and it seems childish to call them planet names but we don't care hehe. :P

Haha yeah. How many bettas do you have/have had? What are their names? The one in your display pic is very cute. I have a profile pic but I can't work out how to display it in my forums.. do you remember how you did it?

ive had probably 10 total, and a few other fish, but bettas are my favorite (of small fish anyways). for the picture youll waant to go to the top and hit user cp, then go to my edit avatar, then there should be a page that pops up and sais download file.

I did it, thanks. Did it work? :P
No name for your beautiful betta in the pic?! You gotta give it one! Call it Taurus. :P I am just as crazy as you about them, I had tanks all over my room until my dad was like NO MORE TANKS! I wanted ONE more tank to fit two more bettas. So I had to work something out with him and my profile pic is the result. :)
