His Royal Halfmoon Highness King Zomg the First or just, "Zomg" as he was lovingly known, wasn't always royalty. He came from a sad background, a half gallon bowl with evaporated dirty water, afflicted with pop eye and ammonia burns. I saw him at the lfs looking sad, he wanted out and after a lot of thought I picked him up.. I doubted his survival for even the night, he was breathing rapidly and sitting on the bottom but he got better and better, he was the fanciest betta I had and hence he was royalty to me.
He was a shy little boy who would swim around his QT and hide from me unless I had food. He didn't trust me enough as most royalty wouldn't trust a commoner. :) He barely ever flared but when he did it was a sight! He didn't have a pretty face but he was beautiful to me!
Zomg lived with me for a short period of 2 months, I helped him fight popeye and the gruesome ammonia burns he had sustained. He soon became a regal looking boy with a "ZOMG" expression.. Sadly fate has written all our lives and his was at an end, on Thursday I found him with severe dropsy, looking at him I knew nothing could be done so the next day I put him to sleep. I'm sorry I had to do that my baby, after saving you, I was the one to put your life to an end. I hope you understand why I had to do that. I hope you are at peace now and the king of fish heaven. :')
I'm putting up the pictures of him that I want to remember him by. A beautiful betta and not what the petshop had made him. :(
Rest in Peace His Royal Halfmoon Highness, King Zomg I...
