Poor little Red Beard, he had such a rough start to life. He just tuckered out by the end. He was a fighter, for sure, and I'm amazed he survived all the ordeals he went through before he came home to us, let alone the other drama that happened afterwards(Guest at house knocked over his fish tank and didn't tell anyone! Who knows how long he was on the ground!) but he still was with us for a good while, considering he was at least two when we got him. Betta fish live such short lives! I'll miss your spunk, Red Beard!
