I lost Barney last night....He had been fading over the past few days....I know he was older when I bought him so it doesn't surprise me...Barney had a wonderful life here with us and he will be missed....He was my Granddaughters fish....She picked him out......

RIP my sweet firey red headed boy.....

Aw, Karen, I'm so sorry. The pics of your grand daughter feeding Barney with such care were precious.

RIP Barney

Shawnie, I haven't told her yet....She doesn't live with me anymore she moved to CA with her Dad....I'm not sure how to tell her.....When she comes to stay with me that was the 1st thing she did was run to the fish room to say hello to her boy....

Landons new wife is an artist and she has been working on a 16x16 oil painting of Barney for my fish room...I'll treasue it forever....

The photo of Anberlin and the "cup" was the day we brougt him home...She used to kiss his tank every morning....

Love the pics. Look at Barney, he looks like he's giving a kiss back. So sweet.
He looks as fascinated of her as she is of him.

RIP Barney - we'll miss you pretty boy!
Your granddaughter is just precious - my 3 year old kisses and "hugs" the fishtank every morning when she gets up. It makes fish keeping that much more fun.

If she is still young, you don't really need to "tell her" unless she asks.

As a sidenote, how old is the oldest lived betta you've ever had/heard of?
