I noticed this morning that she didn't want to eat She didn't look bloated but was a little paler than normal...I thought she would be ok till I got home from work when I planned on doing water changes on her's, Hick's and Bonnie's and Clyde's tanks Anyway.
She had brought me home because she's thinking of getting a tank and Betta and wanted to know what's involved in keeping a Betta,I said perfect I have maintenance to do today anyway...And there she was just floating on the top of the tank I just started to cry She said Don't Cry,You can get another one can't you (Not a Clue)So Through the tears I did what needed to be done I bagged up my little Lambert,Took water samples for testing and did my maintenance,My perimeters are as follows...
ph-7.6
Nitrite-0
Amonia-0
Nitrate-5.0
Temp 80
I have no idea what happened...she was fine all week.
I don't understand what's going on...I'm trying to what's best for my little one's and this happens for no apparent reason...life is so cruel sometimes
Sorry for the long post...Any comments are always welcome.
I really just need a hug and nobodys here with me

:'( It's really hard losing these little pets but we know how you feel and that you gave her a good & happy life. I think she may have gotten some type of internal parasite, but it's hard to be sure.

I'm so sorry you lost her. It's hard to lose them. Sometimes their older than we think they are when we get them and we don't know how the conditions they were in before we get them has affected them.
(((HUGS))) from all my fishies.

So sorry for your loss..........................That is definitely the most frustrating thing about fish keeping. Everything is fine one day and not the next......Unexplanable, but I'm sure she had a great life with you. Hang in there........

Hey Shelly,
I can't believe I didn't see this thread before! I am so sorry that you lost Lambert. Hopefully you are feeling a bit better now. She is in betta heaven and has the biggest tank of all to swim in. I know its hard when we lose a betta and I completely understand what you are going through. I hope that today was a bit brighter for you and things will continue to get easier.
