View Full Version : my poor fish meets her death

My poor lady who had the pop eye heals up great. Her pop eye was totally gone and she was her old self again. So I go to put her back in her bigger tank because she was in a smaller tank while she was being treated. I haven't had the chance to put her back in hers yet. Well last night I did put her back in her 5 gallon hex. I had completely changed her water due to the pop eye issue. Well I forgot to put the back of the top on. See where this is going?

I came home from petsmart and I go to check on her since she just got put into her tank again. I was expecting to see her playing in there like she was before I left. I couldn't find her in the tank anywhere. Long story short she was on the floor dead. I can't believe that after all that worrying I did about loosing her and then I had brought her back from it and this is how she died. And if I would have not forgotten it would have never happened. I hate that she died :(

RIP betta. Things like this will happen, and do, to all of us on occasion. The point is, you made the effort and probably learned a few things along the way. ;)
