A Sad Ending

Well. I had been worried about Ares these past few days, but at least he isn't in pain anymore with that eye of his. He passed this evening while I was out grocery shopping. A lot of people are telling me "he's just a fish, Erin, it's not like a sixty lb dog.", but i'm still crying for him. Maybe he wasn't a sixty lb dog, but he was still my baby. I'm sorry I couldn't do better, hon, I'll miss you forever. Rest well.

I'm so sorry. Fish are JUST as important as any other animal. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. RIP, Ares.

Thank you, Sweeda. Your compassion is very much appreciated. He will have a proper burial tomorrow at my favorite nature trail. <3

May your baby boy rest in peace. I understand how it feels. I lost my boy Shiro not to long ago and even now I still cry. I have a new boy Sora and it's not that I don't love/care about him as much as Shiro but it's just strange to not see Shiro in his tank. Don't let anyone tell you he was just a fish. You have the right to love whoever whatever you want.

When you take on anything as a pet... whether a mouse, a fish, a dog or a bird - to you it is a pet, a member of the family. Not many non-cat people understand the pain when a family puts down their 17 year old cat. so not many non-betta people know how it feel.

And I am sorry you lost your fella - you took good care of him :)

I'm so sorry you lost your fishy :(. Ive had people tell me they are just fish! You can always buy another one. But non betta loves don't understand that it's not just a fish! It's part of your life like any other animal
