I've lost 3 fish in the course of 6 weeks. It's been hard.

This is beautiful! It makes me happy to think of my two bettas there! My second one didn't have much of a life, he died in four days after I got him from Walmart. :( At least he died in a clean tank with stuff to swim around, rather than in one of those small, filthy cups. Again, absolutely beautiful! All fish deserve this.

I know all about the rainbow bridge poem for all the other pets. I have never read one for our finned friends. I have to tell you this one definitely spoke to me the most. It is really beautiful and it touched my heart greatly.

I don't consider fish keeping a "hobby"...I don't consider having dogs or cats or my rodents a "hobby"...why would my fish be considered one. They are more than a hobby they are part of my (our) family and should be considered as such.

Thankyou for this touching post!! I am getting ready to lay to rest my sweet female Betta named Ms. Fanny. She passed December 31, 2015 from dropsy. I have the little plot of soil next to a flowering blue Hyacinth. I am waiting her white crystal cross from Hong Kong now.

This was so happy and sad. I do hope that there is such a place. All our babies are swimming together. What a wonderful thought! I am still trying to get past the lump and keep the tears at bay. 💕

Beautiful poem that has brought me a little bit of peace on this tragic day, thank you very much for sharing. I like to believe that my Nebby is now swimming under the Rainbow Bridge, free from the ailment that has plagued him for months and no longer stressed from the weight of his long fins. Now excuse me as I go cry.

Almost a Week and a half ago. My best buddy in the world passed. He was just a simple Crowntail Red Betta. With a subtle blue iridescence to his scales. But he never was boring to watch and always posed for the camera any chance he could. And the few times I had him with tank-mates. He always swam with them. Even when I had him with a Black Skirt Tetra, and a Orange Platy. (Off-topic, but the BST and Platy both stay close to each other.) All three mentioned fish, all would swim side by side. They never fin-nipped and always seemed to get along. The BST and Platy now are hardly active, nearly as if they lost a dear friend.

This is so beautiful... people who have never owned fish before won't understand this because they think that they are "just fish" and that they are disposable pets but they are not they are wonderful pets and each individual had their own personality. When my betta Oscar passed away 2 years ado I was so sad, this story made me so happy knowing that he is probably in fish afterlife... I miss him and I hope I can see him again when I die.

I just lost my 7 year old male betta he was surprisingly active even the day before he died. He was good friends with three tetras and they soon followed him(they where 5-6) and I miss them dearly and it was the second time I lost a pet that I loved this dearly(the first being my hedgehog to cancer) I am a school kid and he died while I was at school. May Hokusai Rest In Peace swimming happily 💙🥲
