I regret to announce that on this evening, Twain the 1st, of Left-side Quarters, has passed away. The black rectangle is a token of solemnity.Twain was a good Betta-Splendens, of the Veil-tail variety, red with a blue streak in one of his chin whiskers (I’ll know the correct terminology for a fighting fish’s anatomy, one day). He was very well for the few weeks he lived at this residence, until yesterday when he ceased to be lively… Perhaps he was depressed by the loss of the bubblenest he’d been buliding, when his water was changed. Perhaps he was traumatized by that event.. though the other two underwent the same treatment. As of yesterday, after his water change, he wasn’t even responding/flaring at the sight of Abra nor Rhine. Those two, by the way, have been super active since yesterday, and continue to be so. Twain…. is sadly gone. But he will be remembered. And his empty home will again one day be filled.
