Gallant Little Gershwin

I regret to inform everyone that Gershwin has lost his valiant battle against velvet, severe emaciation, and general Petco care. While he was only with me for a few short days, his struggle to live was inspiring and I genuinely enjoyed taking care of him. He was a handsome blue fellow with funny fused fins and a fighter's spirit but unfortunately, his poor abused body simply couldn't continue on. I know that he is now at peace in a place where he'll never have to worry about nasty parasites or dirty little cups ever again.

You will be missed, little Gershwin.

Edit: Also, I really want to thank everyone who cheered for Gershwin and who gave me such great support during his short life. Thank you all so much.

I'm sorry sakura :( At least he didn't die in a horrible, dirty cup, he died in a nice heated tank with care he couldn't have gotten otherwise. I'm sure he is gratful if your effort :(

I'm sorry about Gershwin. You did a magnificent job caring for him in his last few days. I'm sure he really appreciated your care and those blood worms.

Poor little guy. I'm so sorry but you were so awesome to love him for a short time. He didn't die lonely and at least he had some dignity at the end.

I am so sorry, Sakura. At least Gershwin had good care in the end. You were very brave to recue and fall in love with him. You made all of us love him too. I think we all learned from his experience. You and Gershwin will probally save many more Bettas just for keeping us posted on his fight to live. Thank you both. I think your fight to save him helped me to fight for Kessler.
