No, i couldn't handle it... There was somethin real special about that little bugger... I can hardly believe that he is still gone, ya know?
I've lost fish before, but none have been as hard as my baby pike... I'm actually doing his memorial today and its hard. lol, but i guess it always will be.
Im glad that your new baby is doing well! I'd love to see photos sometime! I still look at the babies they sell at petco, and miss mine :)
Oh, I'm so sorry. :( I think that both of our babies were just too young to be able to survive the tiny cups, betta pellets and transportation. Poppy is still doing great though, thank goodness! I got her when she was older than Lily so even though she was still a fry, she was old enough to handle the stress. She has been growing so fast, but she hasn't lost her stress stripes yet. :( But she's a bright strawberry red and distinctly female (unlike Lily). Have you gotten another baby?
Lily didn't survive. She was too fragile and eventually got some sort of fungus and died before the treatment could kick in. :( I now have a new baby, Poppy who is older than Lily was, and is much healthier. How is Pica?
That's awesome! I thought he was going to be cellophane but I guess it must be a fry thing. :) I think Lily might be a girl after all! She has the body of a girl so unless she randomly grows longer fins... Maybe I will check for an egg spot. Do you think she would have one? She's grown a lot!
\I'm starting to really wonder how old Piko is.... He has maybe grown 1/8th of an inch since I got him, BUT!!!!! I noticed a day ago, HE IS GETTING COLOR! I think he is going to be red, since his anal fin has a hint of red, and his ventral fin, just one, is turning a dark red color. I've gone to only feeding him pellets, though he still has a hard time getting them down. It takes him a few minuets to swallow it... lol but he is getting really hyper, and just barley, I introduced two little silk plants into his betta keeper!
Lily is getting bigger! I moved her to my community tank- she's in a breeding net for now. :) I'm hoping that since she can see the other fish everyday I can raise her to not be aggressive towards the guppies. She looks much healthier and stronger! She's very fiesty! How's Piko doing??
