RIP Avenger, Beowulf, Hurrican, Washout, Pickle, Chile, King :(

Really REALLY bad break
So I have been gone for just about a month (stopped by once a week to check on bettas) while visiting family (my dad came home and for holidays) so my roommate has been betta sitting
and he did a great job, he kept tanks clean and fed everyone
but he left on the 24th (I got back on the 26th in the AM so I figured everyone would be good for the two days)
Well, I didn't take under consideration of their being a power outage
and some of my heaters.... Im not sure if they just wonked out and stopped working or if they went into overdrive.... but I AM tossing them >:( along with the extension plug
I lost six bettas from the issue... not sure if it was from the heater (marine) or the extension cord... or a combination with the power outage
:(
RIP
Beowulf, Hurricane, Washout, Pickle, Chile, and King
And I lost Avenger :( though I have been expecting this, it still REALLY hurt, my roommate called me before he left to let me know :(

RIP Beowulf
Always going to be one of my favorite little dudes, you were the only betta who would really JUMP out of the water during feeding.... and you were always so personable :( RIP








RIP Washout
My "mellow" boy of the Walmart rescues, you were'nt ever really interested in anything I did... and such a picky eater




RIP Hurricane
My poor man, you've had issues since day one... maybe this was better for you, but I wish I could have seen you one last time, I know in fishy even, you can swim










RIP Pickle
Still can't help but think of you as the little green "girl" I found in Walmart.... but you showed me what a handsome little devil you were







RIP Chile
I watched you go from a skinny clammped fin pink boy, into a gorgeous red spade tail... you proved red isnt plain <3







RIP King
My oldest boy, such a stuck up man and a little piggy










RIP Avenger
You've been sick since day one... and I just couldn't figure how to make you better, Im glad your suffering is over, RIP Avenger

How Tragic! I can't stop crying. For you to loose them like that. The poor things, it must have been horrible for them.

I'm so sorry! Losing that many at once must have been hell.

Power outages are a big fear of mine, the worry about how it would affect all my finned friends.

LittleBettas: Maybe have your power checked so it doesn't happen again.
How would having a power outage cause your fish to die anyways???
Just wondering.....
