My Betta Died Today...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I got a call from my mom while i was at work today telling me one of my bettas, Phantom, had passed away. I'm kinda sad. I had just been over last night to clean them out and check on them. He was fine as could be, no signs of illness or anything. He was several years old though- so i guess that's just what it was.He was such a pretty fishy! He did live a good life though, i had him for several years. / I will be moving my other Betta, Mr. Magoo over to Colin's house soon. (i'm in the process of moving my animals from my duplex into colin's house since that's where i'm living for the most part now.) RIP litlte Phantom

A few pictures I had taken of Phantom before he crossed over the fishy rainbow bridge...

Oh, he was so pretty. A very unusual color too.

I'm sorry for your loss

RIP poor lil Phantom. My son had one a few years back. His name was Sparkle. He lived for years. I now have one called Harliquin. They are great fish. Sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry Nikki- I had a big goldfish that lived almost 1.5 years named Wang Chung ( )- and when he died I was devistated!
RIP Phantom

Thankyou everyone / I know it might seems silly, but i was pretty upset over the little guy- i had him for quite a while and always spent lots of time and energy making sure he got the best food/care. I have had quite a few bettas....most i've ever had at once was 8. So i really love fish and just think they're beautiful animals. I miss the little guy. He was always so spunky and energetic swimming around his tank./ I haven't decided if I will rescue another betta yet....i might (yup- you can rescue bettas just like you would cats/dogs- you'd be suprised how many bettas get taken back to pet stores/etc becase people get tired of them....i always get the ones in the back that are about to croak- take them home and take good care of them- often times they live good lives like Phanotm did. When I don't rescue though- I am VERY good friends with a little old man who runs a gorgeous fish store near here- he takes WONDERFUL care of all them- so if none are avaible for adoption from another place- i might go there. I'm not sure yet. / I think for now though, i'll just concentrate on getting a new tank for Mr. Magoo (my other betta) and moving him to Colin's house.

Thanks ladies. I appreciate that. I really miss the little guy- he was always so excited to see me everytime i walked near him- he'd swim and do little flips. (he thought he was gonna get some food) He really was a handsome fish though- he was white- almost translucent, and had black fins on his side.

I'm sorry, Nikki. May Phantom rest in peace and play happily beneath his bubble nest beneath the Rainbow Bridge.

Phantom was a beautiful fish.

I'm sorry about Phantom It was probably old age if you had him for that long.


I have 2 bettas and I love them so much I would be heartbroken if they passed.

Thankyou everyone. I miss the little guy. I went to the pet store today to look for a new tank for Mr. Magoo (my remaining betta) and they had a betta there that looked a lot like phantom- it was sad.
