Rest in Peace, Monster

After four years of swimming and eating, our faithful betta fish, Monster, has died. It's a good thing he was so beautiful when he was alive, because that sort of makes up for the fact that he smelled utterly vile when was floating lifeless in his bowl yesterday. This fish looks like him, except Monster didn't have a black head. We still have the other betta fish, unnamed. He might be happy that Monster's gone, because now he can have the bigger bowl.

There were no services. Only a hurried, nose-pinching trip to the garbage can outside.

Four years is a long time for a fish! May he rest in peace.

Thanks, Robin. He was a good fish. A real survivor. He jumped out of his bowl once and lay on the counter for I don't know how long. When I found him, some of his fins were stuck to the counter, but he pulled through, the plucky little devil.
