I just purchased one today which came from Thailand and everything seemed fine with it until I just went not too long ago to look at it and it died. This is the second time this has happened in less than two months. I had to pay for the fish then I had to pay the transshipped which cost nearly $50 smh. Now it was just a waste of money. The previous beta before I had lasted over a year before passion away. The water wasn't even hot. The water was at a cool temp but not colds. I'm expecting another one tomorrow and I just even feel so excited about it anymore...
