My DD's adopted rescue Betta passed away today. Last night he looked bad.

She was so sad about him today when she told me, I was at work still. Personally I cared about him but he was her little guy. Mostly sad for her, she was very attached... He was a beautiful turquoise color with ruffled fins.

Before she had him, he survived in a Lava Lamp set up, and when we got him he was in an gelatinous slime of golden brownish water, I don't know even how he survived it. We had him a couple years.

I had some Elodea /waterweed which decided to start melting, received as a freebie plant, and really fouled/messed up my snail jar, I did pwc but it needs another one and removed the worst ones, I think I will need to remove all of them

Weird how I can't keep a weed alive.

Stared admiringly at my Fire Red shrimp, they look so good in that tank!!!

Now considering what to change into the 5G tank now that the Betta has passed.

Have my avatar Dragonscale Betta in the 5G Chi, but would maybe prefer it as a shrimp tank...

I hate working so much because I don't have as much time to play with my fish tanks!

That's so sad for your DD, Autumsky. Children get so attached,as do we adults, but those first few deaths of pets are so hard...

I ordered a Aquaclear 50 as a second filter on my 55 gallon. It did have a second one in the past but in died, possible because I didn't clean it out enough in all the parts and here was a lot of sand in the water when it stopped working. It was an Aqueon. That's not the first time I've lost an Aqueon filter. I probably am not cleaning the filters properly.

This time I ordered cup shaped sponges that are designed to go over the intake tubes of the filters. Since I have sand that might help prolong the filter lives.
