    Hello sad update after a long 3-4 week battle against dropsy my betta passed. I want to bury him outside but we have 5 cats and a dog and i’m worried about them trying to dig him up.

    You can bury him in a potted plant where he can nourish the plant, that way he lives on in a way and you have something that will protect him from scavengers.

    i wanted to put him in a specific plant but i just set it up to germinate a few days ago so i don’t think there will be much of him by the time it gets put in a pot but maybe i will put him in the pot the plant will be in for the mean time. thanks for the suggestion

    When my hamster passed, I found a quiet beautiful place in the woods and buried her there. Hope this helps.

    I have never had problems with animals if you bury the pet in question deep enough so they can’t smell it. I don’t know a exact depth but for all my pets it has not been too insanely deep.
