How horrible to have to lay to rest Fishface the day before my 7th birthday. I loved Fishface a lot! He was my first betta fish.
I dug him a grave in the butterfly garden and added flowers and special rocks. I will miss him lots. After about 3 hours of mourning the loss I insisted with tears streaming down my face that we go to the store and buy a new fish for me.
Welcome my new fish. I picked a WHITE betta fish. It is named Sir Fangar. It only took me nearly an hour going through all the fish to make my decision.
UPDATE: My betta fish may be what they call a MARBLE Betta. It was white when I adopted it and now it is turning blue and red!
