Bye My Little Blue Betta
May 12, 2019 9:29am CST
My poor little Blue has passed away. My gut told me that him laying around on his plant leaf wasn't right but I thought maybe he was just lazy. I was cleaning his tank a while ago when I noticed him barely swimming and he was horizontal. I started freaking and quickly took him out of the aquarium into a plastic container I use sometimes when changing the water. He was still horizontal and after checking on him several times, I knew he wouldn't make it. He died about an hour later. And what did I do? I cried like a baby over a fish. But he was so personable, swimming up to the tank when he saw me and it looked like he was wagging his tail. C said he would go buy me another one but I don't want another one right now. So he is going to buy me a couple of female guppies for the big tank instead. I know I'm being really emotional but it just breaks my heart especially because I couldn't do anything to help.

I use to breed Betas--have you ever seen them during the laying of eggs process? It is like a ballet!! The male wraps himself around the female, squeezes the eggs out and then puts them into the bubble nest he built on the top of the water. Amazing!

I am not surprised that you are upset, you had a relationship with him even if there was a glass between you, It is sad to lose something that brings us pleasure. I am not sure if fish have an afterlife however, heaven is where we are happy so for you, he may be waiting.
