another loss :(

Our (new) betta died yesterday. He had been getting fat, but his behavior hadn't changed, so I didn't think anything was wrong with him. I just cut down on his food a little. Sunday night my husband was looking at him and said that he looked kinda gray, and he did. So I went online and looked up the page on betta diseases, and it turns out he had a fatal, genetic disease called dropsy. I put him in a salted tank to make him more comfortable but he died the next day. I gave him a little funeral and buried him with all my other fish in the sacred cactus in the Circle.

He was a really cool fish. And I never even took a picture of him. :(
