I wasn't even gonna try and get a picture of my fishy, he's an active guy at times and somehow, I just don't think he'd be very cooperative. Shortly after I got him, his long, flowing tail came off. I'm not sure what happened; it was there one day and gone the next! Totally freaked me out but it didn't seem to phase him and it eventually grew back.
I'd had another blue fish before him named Midnight and somehow, I'd forgotten his name the last six or so months of his life. I didn't remember it again until he passed. So... I eventually got another fish after probably nine months or so and to avoid the same situation happening again, I called him Red. Because he's red. Yes, I am oh so original!
My other beta's have never lived much past 2 to 2 1/2 years so I suspect that Red won't be around for too much longer. I just wanted to take some time today to pay tribute to his special "gotcha" day.
