Unhappy Hyde....

so, Hyde finally passed. he'd been ill for so long, and i knew his time was coming, but... i still feel bad. if it weren't for my stupidity, he'd still be alive.

he was poisoned. the culprit, was a storage container. i didn't realize it wasn't food-safe, and used it for a temp tank for Hyde, and the late Gackt. he didn't do much, but i had hope. sadly, this past week, he just went downhill fast. the other day, he got that fuzzy fungus that grows on fin rips, and despite me treating him for it, it didn't go away. that, was my first clue that his time was near. the other, was his refusal to eat. he normally eats like a piggy, even while ill, but the past few days, he'd look at the pellet, then turn away.

i'm sorry, Hyde. i wish i'd known the container wasn't safe, before i used it. if it weren't for me... you'd still be alive.

i buried him under the newly planted Cherry tree, wrapped in a paper towel, so his death, helps give life to the new tree.

he was a beautiful betta. a marble. blue, white, pink, red, and the beginnings of a beautiful aqua on his anal fin. i wish i could have seen if that aqua would have expanded. RIP, my little rock star.

I'm so sorry about Hyde. We all make mistakes. You didn't know that the container wasn't safe.
