There are fish with big personalities that are unique, like my blood parrots and my african featherfin and then there are my schooling fish. I'm sad when I lose a schooling fish but I'm devastated when I lose one of the unique fish.

No other creature hurts my heart like the loss of one of my rescue dogs, though.

I guess I would say I get a little sad but mad at myself, thinking what have I done wrong? Or what could I have done to prevent this? All these things and more go through my mind.

I think I'll cry and sit on the couch with ice cream and a blanket all day with the lights out and the TV on when my betta dies. That speaks for itself.

Everyone experiences pet death in different ways. It's not your place to laugh at them but accept how they handle it.

Doesn't sound it to me. I had a like reaction when my female blood parrot died a while back. If you'd told me I would've been that affected, I would've punched you in the arm and shook my head, but I was hit bad by that one.
