I came back from a few days away in Dublin to find my lovely (and longest-lived Betta) dead. RIP Beau...Crying or Very sad



He'd been looking a bit shook over the last few weeks so I'd figured he wasn't long more for this world as he was over two years old but still...Sad

Thanks, chez. It's such a shame that the prettiest fish are often the shortest-lived. Wink

Diana: That is so true...Embarassed

Rich: I lost my female a few months back and then the replacement I bought leapt to her death out of the Q tank. Rolling Eyes

You dont have much luck with bettas do you Mary - wasnt that the fish that you used to keep losing a while ago?

Your right though, they dont last long which is a shame, I would love a tankful of them but of course that is out of the question.

Are you going to get another male?

Well this one lasted about two years, Fishfan, which is more or less their lifespan. I lost the first one to disease but the other three were because of stupidly using super glue on an ornament in the BiOrb which poisoned them...Evil or Very Mad
