    Dracula was alive when we came home this afternoon. He passed while we were eating dinner of old age. He was somewhere between 3-4 years old. I guess he wanted to see "his girls" one last time.

    RIP Dracula. You were VERY MUCH loved and will be greatly missed. I wish I knew proper betta housing when I brought you home, but I'm very glad I learned during your lifetime. I'm going to miss your "mad rush" to eat dinner before all of the pellets disappear and the way you loved to attack your bloodworms just to make sure they were dead before you ate them. I'm also going to miss you "supervising" when I cook and clean up the kitchen and you playing "tag" with my finger. You were the one who taught me what the "betta dance" was all about.

    You will always hold a very special place in my heart. RIP my strong, majestic, betta boy. I know you'll bring as much joy to Rainbow bridge as you did to us, your family.

    Thanks, everyone:;hug2 I sat in front of his tank crying and felt kinda selfish. He lived a good life, gave us a lot of joy, and died a natural death of old age. I have no right to ask for more than that and I should be grateful that he didn't pass on in some painful, horrible manner.

    Sorry for your loss. I agree with you on the point that at least he died naturally of old age instead of you having to go through some horrible disease.

    RIP Dracula

    Sorry to hear that. Well, at least he's in a better place now. I wish my fish died natually instead of some fish disease( Sebastian died natually. The tank was find when he died)
