Skywalker SIP :(

I’m not very upset right now, more frustrated. He was a Betta Mahachaiensis, I had had him for 6 months and he was my first fish. Initially bought as a female, he was then ID’d as a Male.

In the grand scheme of things, he wasn’t with me very long, though he did enjoy his time. He was ina 45L set up for most of it, with some Brigittae Rasboras. He was without a lid for probably 3 months, no issues.

I woke up today to see him on the floor. No idea why. He was extremely happy from what I could see. Swim in peace little one you’ll be missed.

My last picture of him, taken Saturday. Probably the first and last time I keep any prized fish without a lid. The second, is one of my favourites.

Sometimes i think they jump just to jump, no rhyme or reason behind it other than that. Sorry for your loss...

I’m so sorry! It’s heartbreaking when this happens. The same thing just happened with my betta, Riff. I decided to modify the lid so it won’t have any big holes anymore, since I don’t want to risk this happening again.

Oh my, such an overwhelming response from you all, it’s touching. I really appreciate it. I’m just having awful luck at the minute with fishkeeping, I’m really hoping it turns around soon

Thank you all once again, it means a lot.

We all seem to have a patch like that. Sure will humble a person in a hurry.
