Mo Betta

Mo Betta was a good fish.

He passed away today at approximately 1 pm, at the age of 4 years. He died of some kind of neurological issue, as evidenced by the seizures which ended his life.

Mo started his career as a professional entertainer several years ago when a former roommate acquired him from the Jones & Co. pet store, formerly of Lynnwood. After a few months of deplorable neglect and mishandling, Mo was relocated to my office where he took the position of Curriculum Fish. He even had his own placard in our shared cubical. He primarily spent his time fighting to protect his territory from various objects and blowing bubble nests to attract lady fish.

I don't know what happens to fish when they die. But if there is a fish heaven, he is surely there.

He was a really good fish.
