Ed the Kraken is sick :( [Oct. 30th, 2006|02:48 pm]
wobbly sphinx

Unfortunately Ed the Kraken had finrot, which has now worsened to water mould. :( I've been medicating him to no avail...
Ed's the first betta I got since arriving in Brunei. True he is but a fish, plenty more where those came from (these guys are dirt cheap here) but that doesn't mean I'm not gonna bawl my face off if he dies :'(

Shit, I get so attached to pets it's not even funny...but I seriously hope he makes it...even if I don't have any experience in treating fish, much less water mould that is often fatal. I'm holding out cos his body is still untouched, but his fins have 2 giant holes in them - you can see the bones sticking out. And obviously he's not feeling well.

Get better soon Ed! :(

Edit: some pics of his fins :(

like I say...OUCH. But the rot has stopped since I switched treatments. Though I think the current treatment will just hold the fort while I look for the more effective one... -_-

I KNOW!!! Well I just sit there staring at him while he stares back at me. That's about it...
At least he still swims about, is greedy and attempts to fight the sharpie :D

Did that make sense? lol I've just had a brush with the flu. Half the office is down with them.

*hug!* I hope Ed gets better. ._. It's always hard to lose a pet, no matter what kind.

Sorry for my lack of commenting. College is raping me hard and mercilessly. ...So while I have time I'm gonna spam you. :3

How has work been anyway? Is it treating you the same way college is treating me?
