That is a VERY long fishy life!

I was going to ask, but Jennifer seems to have answered already. Pretty blue. Your previous camera post inspired one for me that will appear at some point.

Jennifer; I've no idea how long these fighters generally live. I know he was happy though, because he would swim around and when I noticed him he would fan out all his fins, like he was saying hello.

Andrew; now I'm curious.

I thought they lived for 2 or 3 years, so it sounds like Chippy had a long life. And it sounds as though he was happy. Though it still hurts when they go :(

Frogdancer said...

But he only remembered the last 3 minutes of it!

RIP Chippy

River said...

Marie; I like to think he had a happy life.

Frogdancer; three minutes......then nothing.

*hugs* It sounds like he had a lovely life.
I'm not allowed Betta's anymore, because I cry too much when they pass on. At least my cats I get 15-17 years before I have to face that again.

Devi; thanks.

Awwww.... sounds like he was happy and, um, fulfilled if the experts say he lived a long life. Such a pretty lookin' fella too!
