This is hard to type. I only had him a week. And it's because of my stupidity that he's gone. He was gorgeous, a beautiful white, pure white, with bright red fins. He was feisty and spunky and I loved him as soon as I laid eyes on him.
I worried that he wasn't getting enough sleep due to not having a house to hide in, so I put a little shot glass thing in that had a little stem on it in with him. I had no idea the opening was big enough for him to get his head in. I pulled him to the surface when I found him, hoping desperately that he was still alive, but needing air, which I could give him while we tried to get him out. No such luck.
I'm sorry I wasn't a better fish mommy, Zero. :( You're still the prettiest betta I've ever seen.
