Well, to all that recognized his film career, thank you. Bartleby died this morning. I feel responsible because he was temporarily sharing his condo with two ottos. I fed the ottos two algae wafers over the week and I fear the betta ate himself to death. The ottos were frankly expected to die as they have such a high mortality rate. Bartleby, however, was a tragic surprise. A sad day here at the house. I've cleaned out the tank which is back to only two nerite snails and a moss ball. If you have any theories on what killed my fish, I'm all ears. As far as future plans, the water parameters are perfect and awaiting a new resident.
Does anyone have a favorite breeder on this sight? I've been looking at this spot to purchase a new betta http://bettafishstore.com/
. Sorry for the bad news. One thing about fish keeping is that it is a hobby of constant education.
