It's very hard to say good by to any pet. He gave my wive and I great pleasure. He will always live in memories. I took his tank completely down cleaning every thing in it. I washed out the sand and made sure there is nothing left in it, The plants were thinned out and the algae on the leaves was rubbed off and replanted. The filter was emptied and the media was thrown out. the filter it's self was cleaned with vinegar and rinsed for over an hour in extremely high heat. I have the tank in cycle again and have removed some of the agate in case there was dye in them. (I really don't think it was that but just in case It was taken out). Russell and I have been talking back and forth on his death and both have come to the conclusion that sometimes it just happens.
Thank you all for your kindness. Blue was a very special little guy for me.
I have not been idle since I cleaned his tank and I have put out some calls for a very specific new betta. I hope by the end of the month I will hear for my sources and have a new member of the heard.
My last purchase of Cal. My big blue HM who I refer to as my big blue marble is doing so well in his 10 gallon with his tank mates and is always looking over my shoulder while I work on the computer. It's either that or he's begging for food. LOL he has gotten to now almost 3 inches in body alone and he rules his tank.
Just wonder what the next one will be like.
