    I want to say goodbye to Xander who was not even 1 year old. I got you on the 25th of May when you were 7 months old and even though I only had you for three months, the bond felt much more stronger than that. But then you developed a sudden case of dropsy and pineconed within a single day. I...

    Well, it's been a year and 5 days since the day Chumani took ill with Dropsy and died, and even longer since I've posted on this website. So I figured my first post in so long would be about the little fishy who inspired me to join this site. Chumani shortly after I bought her; Fall of 2014...

    Prince Azul (featured in my profile pic), I got him on a whim 3 years ago when I went to pick up food for my turtles I saw him sitting there and fell in love with him immediately. He reminded me of Nemo as his left fin was pretty torn up, but he had a fighting spirit and immediately swam up when...

    Happiness that the future will dream (Is the happiness in the future a dream?) Although these bettas died at different times, they deserve to be remembered. Winston, my first betta. I never realized, and I wish I realized more that bettas weren't just a cute pet. They were my friends. I'm sorry...

    King was my crowntail betta. He was a silly fella and would perk up when I sat at my desk and did schoolwork. He made studying for finals more fun! Although he are his first snail buddy, Gary, who died, he was friendly to Slowski, the next snail. King survived car rides in a critter keeper in a...

    Valdis was my first betta, and has endured all of my beginners mistakes. We've had our ups and downs but he has always been a fighter. It's been almost a year and I am so much more knowledgeable now, we were doing well up until a few months ago... I still can't believe Valdis is actually gone...

    So about a month ago Poseidon got side bumps and this under bump thing, I nursed him back, and he lost the bump underneath, but still had the side bumps, a few days ago his under bump came back, so I put him back in his hospital tank, I went to go change the water, and sadly he was gone. I...

    Hercules, less than 120 minutes after my sister had settled him into his new tank, had died a sudden and unexpected death. But it ended up being her fault because apparently she had dumped him in probably less than room-temp water and... Long story short, don't do that. :\

    I got Simon no more than three weeks ago. He suddenly fell ill, and wouldnt eat but didnt have any identifiable disease. I tested the water and did water changes when appropriate and everything was fine. After almost a week of refusing to eat I finally got him to eat again, and that day he...

    This unnamed fish lived for nearly 7 months after I rescued him from PetSmart, blind, starved, and infected with a fungus. He finally succumbed to dropsy this evening, but he fought for his life for a long time. After his rescue his fungal infection was cured within a month and his sight was...

    Yesterday, I checked the water of my newest tank (set up begin june). The water was perfectly good, so I decided to make the big jump. my female betta X (she has a big X spot,.. yeah I know original name) should have been the first female betta for my sorority, she would be the oldest one. I...

    At four years old, old Handsome Jack the giant elephant ear was quite the happy little grump. Kind of like a happy senile old man. We rescued him from a mall store about a year ago, when we noticed that he had dropsy. He was living in a tiny little tank that got cleaned once (if that) a week...

    Teddy Salad was given a funeral at sea after being found dead on Friday morning. He died in the relative comfort of his own home, still fighting against swim bladder issues and advanced fin rot. Though he only moved in with me as a baby a few months ago, I think we both matured together...

    It's been much too long since I've posted on here, and I wish it were under better circumstances that I finally am. Poor little Mojo died today and I thought I should post a little memorial for him on his behalf. SIP little buddy, you broke on through to the other side. You're swimming with your...
