My Fish

My husband insisted I get a new betta for my five gallon that Gabe used to live in. He was upset that I would cry every time I passed it. So we did, I got a cute little fellow that I'm calling Cassiel. He's a half-moon betta and very pretty. I'll try to post a pic later.

It didn't solve my problem of crying by the tank though. I still miss my little Gabe. We had a relationship, and this new fish...well, we don't. I know it'll develop and Gabe didn't know any tricks when I first got him either, but getting a new fish doesn't replace Gabriel.

I know you guys on my friends list must think it silly that someone could get attached to a fish, but I'll bet you've never had bettas. No, he wasn't a mammal, but we were attached to each other. He would behave differently when someone that wasn't me came up to his tank and he would get excited when it was me.

My little buddy Gabe died. I just found him. I know he was very old for a Betta, and I have really been expecting this any day, but it's still so awful to find him like that. He was so smart for a fish. I'm really going to miss him. I guess you guys think it's silly to get so upset over a fish, but he was such a good buddy to me for well over 2 years now. He was really smart for a fish. I can't believe he's really gone.
