such a short life


A navy blue siamese fighter.

Bought from PK Pets 19 January 2009
Died peacefully 15 April 2011



  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 :(

  4. But he only remembered the last 3 minutes of it!

    RIP Chippy

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

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

  6. *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.

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