We didn't plan on taking him. He belonged to our last roommate, Kah. But of course, when one is moving to California, it can be difficult to pack a fish. Thus, Kay and I inherited a little blue beta named Dr. Seuss.
He lived a full, happy life. By the end he'd known several tripod frogs, and a pair of large snails. But eventually all good things must come to an end, and last week, our dear Dr. Seuss passed away.
Though in all fairness, we could all see it coming. He'd been acting weird for days, and he was a reeeeaaaally old beta. He had a remarkably full life.
And now, thanks to our marvelous Sarnic who works at a pet store and therefore gives us info on the pets there, we have a lovely new orange-and-blue beta named Agent (we're fans of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, in case you can't tell).
Fare thee well, friend!
