He's up. He looks like hell, but at least he's up.

So sorry.

Okay, now let's get to work!

Review in your mind everything that happened and the steps you took.
(This is not a beat-up session -- most all of us have killed a fish or two somewhere along the line. Rather, this is the SCIENCE method.)

1. I bet the .5 gal hospital cube was not heated. That would be very stressful.

2. You treated for an illness he may not have had.

3. He prolly didn't know why he got demoted to a tiny space -- more stress and very rapid accumulation of ammonia in .5 g.

4. Sometimes when we worry to much about another, we can actually make them worse (like people. "Am I that sick? Maybe I should be more worried?")

5. More important than losing John Wayne is What Did You Learn? Use this experience to do a bunch of research/reading on the various ways to keep Bettas, such as:

Siamese fighter, Betta splendens

After all this, you will be ready to jump back in and be a more confident fish-mom.

Have fun!

I'm sorry for your loss. Some suggestions above for what to learn from this sound great, and I'm no expert, but I've also come to think that some bettas might be so messed up genetically that they are like time bombs. One of mine (a female) was naturally a very light color, and after a few months, I could see her insides literally starting to bleed. She wasn't injured, the water was well heated with perfect chemistry... Perhaps your betta had a problem that you couldn't have fixed no matter what. I hope you regroup and try again, though, because bettas really make great pets!
