Anthem, the oldest betta among the current bunch, has passed on. He lived a long life for a betta. He survived three Texan winters and was one of the last two first generation Betta Babies™.
His time of death is unknown, but the moment he died will be recorded as 12:34:56 on the morning of 07-08-09 for numerology’s sake. Anthem’s inanimate body was discovered laying against the glass wall of his bowl like he went to sleep one last time.
Here is a collection of digital photos to commemorate Anthem, the ugliest-looking betta we will have ever owned.
