No More Bettas

I have no more bettas.


Last week,Darkness passed away.He was old I think.His fins faded badly and he didn't look too well.Just the other night I found my crowntail,Lotus also dead.I think he had some sort of disease,cause his fins looked all torn and whatnot.


Now the only betta in the house is Nemo...he belong to my daughter.I help her care for him though.


Anyway I will eventually get more,but not right now...as I am in the process of setting up my convict tank!

My sis had a betta named Bubbles. When he passed it was so sad and unfortunate. I don't think they have a long life span. I do like the colors though.

Aww I'm sorry about your fish.

Everytime I have a betta fish I tell myself that this will be the last one for awhile, and once it dies I won't get anymore. That never lasts long with me though, I miss not having one and always end up getting another.

Bettas can live 3 yrs and sometimes longer.I had a betta for a little more than 3 yrs! I guess it depends on the fish,conditions and how old it is when you get it.

I just lost my Betta Fish-fish I know how you feel, my guy was a pretty blue. I'm thinking he may have been old when I got him. I know people say it was only a fish, but you get so attached anyway. Anyone who says "It's just an animal" doesn't know what they're talking about. I'm sorry for your loss Lis
