Sad News from the crib...

Bartleby Betta passed away last night.

I really hoped he'd get better. He kept jumping the night I posted about him, and once he almost succeeded in dying. He was dry when I picked him up and put him back in the water, but 15 seconds later he revived. I'm pretty sure that's what killed him though. *sigh*

He was a great fish. Very playful and affectionate, as far as fish go. He'd follow your finger, and he was very playful once upon a time. I'm going to miss waking up to the sound of him digging in his rocks, watching him weave around the bamboo, and scratching his scales on shoots. He was a great first betta, and I'll always remember him.



Requiscat in Pace, Bartles.

Waaaaaaaah. I know. :(

This is why we love MS Paint. It makes the pain go away in the form of giggles.
