RIP Red

Red was my second Betta fish and I got him for Christmas 2 years ago.

he had a red body and clear fins and he loved to swim in circles.

But one day, while I was at Cello practice, my little sister called my mom and told her that Red had died and Philip was hurt. It turns out, she stuck her hands in their tanks and killed Red, leaving Philip with a ripped tail,and missing scales. she had dumped fish food in both tanks, and dropped her toys in them as well.

Philip made it and is still living today, but I will always remember my Red.

Awww don't feel angry with your sister, those things can happen with anyone even though it always hurts deeply on us =/

Now Philip needs your attention more than anything, take a good care of him and try to find some peace knowing that Red now is in a better place swimming in the big blue sky. May him rest in peace.

I'm so sorry about Red. I hope your sister felt bad about what happened.

I'm glad to hear Phillip is doing okay though.

Oh, yeah. I thought I posted one...but I wasn't sure...

Yea, my sister has learned her lesson, even though she denied everything and hit me. She has stopped tormenting my fish. I can leave Tigger upstairs and know she won't hurt him.
