R.I.P. Wanda (tragic story!!!!!!!!!!!)

wanda was my 5 month old female betta
i took her out of her tank to clean it
i had put her in the cup from which i had bought her in ( i always do that when i clean it)
my clumsy friend was playing around in my room
she was sitting on top of a stand
and my friend knocked her cup right in to my oscars's 50 gallon tank.
my oscar swallowed her whole.
i was in so much shocked
i statred at my oscar
he than opened his mouth and i saw her alive in there and she was still breathing.
i quickly grabbed a fish net and push the oscar with it.
he then flipped over and spit her out.
she quickly swimmed up for air.
after that i grabbed her
and put her into her tank. (a 5.5 gallon tank)
she had a few missing scales so i doesed the water with betta fix
sadly about 5 hours later she died.

i dont know what the cuase of her dead really was
becuase during those 5 housr she was eating and swimming happily


I miss my first female betta wanda.

I'm sorry to hear that.... I would say it was probably the shock too that got her in the end. I also lost my first female betta recently - a cray got her. I found her skeleton on the bottom of the tank...

5.5 gallon: 3 snakeskin guppies/2 ADFs
28 gallon: still in the making (5 platies for now...)
5 gallon terrarium

If the oscar really got her like that, it's also quite likely she had some serious internal injuries.

Sorry to hear about your loss.
