Awww.. Mr. Fishie!  
My betta totally croaked D:
He lasted a good year and a half, though. He's seemed depressed over the past month or so, and was having problems eating. About two days ago, it looked like he'd developed a swim bladder problem, and wouldn't eat at all yesterday. Today, he was totally dead D: Poor Mr. Fishie.

Maybe a blue one next? :X

My cat is especially sad that his playmate is gone. I took some photos back when I learned how to use the macro function on my camera. He had a great personality until he started to get depressed :( I tried so many things to get him up& at it again, but he just seemed so listless, so I can't say I wasn't expecting it :(

Your cat was buddies with the fish? o_O

That's probably not what most people would call it. lol
I say they were freinds because the cat would sit next to the aquarium and stare at Mr. Fishie all day.. and sometimes try to catch him by jabbing his paws against the side of the tank. He's really not so great at depth perception, and not terribly smart, so it doesn't occur to him to stick his paw in through the top. At any rate, the fish was never threatened by the cat, so he'd sit there and flare at him to taunt him, or just stare him down. I'm sure Senpu would have eaten Mr. Fishie if he could have figured it out, though.

Poor fishie! :( It sounds like he lasted a respectable amount of time, though. We looked it up at one point, and I think bettas only live for like 3-5 years - 1-2 of which is up before you take them home from the pet store.

Yeah, I'd like to think he lived a respectable ammount of time. THe one that is most depressed that he is gone, though, is Senpu. He's been sitting by the aquarium and looking for his little playmate since I removed him from the tank yesterday. I haven't gotten around to changing the water yet, so it'll probably be another day or two before I get a new one. I don't think I need to bleach the tank because I don't think he died from parasites or bacteria or anything like that, though. Maybe I'll name the new one Senior Pescado for lack of a better name? XD
I was thinking about a blue or purply crowntail. I'll probably end up getting the most active looking one, regardless, and hope he's cute :P I don't really like the mottled ones, but maybe they a heartier? :X

My current fish is a bluish crowntail, and while he's pretty, he has NO PERSONALITY. He was really spunky at the store, but he got home and got lazy (LIKE ME!). I suppose it doesn't help that I don't pay much attention to him. >_>
