I'm so sorry Blake.
Just take a break, or don't handle so much at once. Everyone loses fish.

If you still decide to leave, I'm sorry. Well miss you. ):

EVERYONE looses fish...You're trying to create a whole world inside a tiny glass box! It's not easy. If you have to start from scratch, so be it. Learn what you did wrong the first time and try to correct it or keep it from happening again.

Keeping and Breeding this species can get really frustrating and it can be heart breaking at times. But sadly its part of the game...you are going to have failures...we all have them...Sometimes you have to take a step back and reevaluate everything and sometimes you have to start over.

But now you have more knowledge-made some mistakes-learned from them...Now its time to move on with the knowledge so that you can be successful.....

One thing I have seen with a lot of new breeders-it that they take on too much too soon. Pick one type of Betta-one color and work with just that one and resist temptation to add anything else.....Once you have a few success under your belt-then add to the mix...but don't give up...take a break...but don't give up....we all have failures...its what we do with these failures that matter.......

Mo, listen. I dont want you to feel like this is your fault. I knew the risks i was taking when i said you could borrow him. Yes, he was my favorite.... but i dont want this to ruin the hobby for you. Im not mad at you. Im sad, yes. But i know it wasnt your fault.

Mo, I know it must be frustrating, but the fact is that you love your fish. It's obvious by your reaction to losing them and I can't believe that you truely want to just throw all that away. We all can see that you take good care of your fish, but sometimes things go wrong, sometimes it's a whole bunch of crap all at once and there is not much you can do to fix it. When things get rough just sit back, breath, think it over. Like ofl said, you should take a break and downsize a bit.

I may be rather new to this forum, but I've been reading through it for a while, and you are one of the members I had looked up to. It would be sad to see you go.

You should take a break do more research or tell us every part of your care and we can help you. When I got my first guppy a day later it died of disease i bought a new one it lived for months in my guppy colony my guppies even as fry are beautiful.

Mo's been taking care of his fish fine, im sure. He's one of the most experienced keepers on the forum. He's just having a bad time right now, we all have them. Im sure you've had them too.

Anyway, I agree 100% with what OFL said! But if you do feel the need to quit then I also understand that. I felt that way when my third hamster died in sixth grade. I still haven't been able to go back to hammys!

Did my advice come off insensitive?

Mo, I have to say your are an inspiration to take on such challenges, and I applaud your efforts above and beyond, because being a breeder is a lot of work, I would never want to do what you do, You are incredible for getting so far, don't think of it as done, take a break, everyone has bad days, and makes mistakes,..we all do, and i know that with so much at stake ,you want perfection..
Please don't ever stop..you are amazing and your passion will keep you going far in life, if you put it all in perspective..don't give up:) A lot of friends here will miss the one and only MO!!!:yourock:
