I'm so sorry. I know it was extremely hard for me when Aurora died. She was fine one day, then got sick and was that way for three days, then just died. I have 2 new females, but neither one is as interactive as she was. She loved to swim through my fingers, and nip them. It's so hard to lose them, isn't it?

i got one for my partly blind Theo. i had the great idea to feed him over it, so the pellets don't get lost in the rocks, but i saw the metal peeking through the plastic, so i ripped it out, and the leaf's all droopy. .___o he didn't care about it, so it belongs to Cup, who uses it when he bloats up(he eats more air than pellets at nom time, and floats up after). i'm REALLY sorry about your loss. D: send a VERY angry e-mail to the company. that thing is a great idea, but stupid way to go about it.

I was always a bit weary of these 'Betta Hammocks'. Sorry for your loss :/ It's very hard losing fish.

I have them in two of my tanks. I don't see any wires sticking out, but I might remove them anyway, since you said that yours looked fine too. How horrible, I'm so sorry for your loss.

D: My sympathy to you too.

It is true, though, that our first ones are those we become most attatched to. Leliia's really active, loves to chase my finger, and I could go on. My first male's the same way. If I ever lose them, I'd be really depressed for a while... I just lost Revenant today, and while I only had him for a week, I'm not talking today... nor am I doing much at all. Lurking around here kinda helps, especially with keeping my mind off things, but after a while, I'll be okay.... Life goes on, right?

It's a horrible and gruesome way to go.... Again, I'm really sorry about your loss.
Besides an angry letter to the company, why not try to get to know that new betta you have?
Yeah, she (I believe your new one is a she, right?) won't replace your angel. No fish can ever be a replacement for another. But once you get to know her, interact with her a bit, maybe you'll find some cute things you like about her and she'll be a new friend.

Much luck to you in healing.
