    Broken hearts are so hard to mend.  It's a true saying.  Even time doesn't always help it.  I think it's because of all the unanswered questions we're left with.  I really feel for you, and something very similar to what happened to you happened to me not long ago as well.  I wish I could offer some encouragement but I have none.

    @AloneGuy Thank you. Sorry I didn't see your replies until now.
    There's really not much one can say. We've all been through it to one extent or another. I find myself doing fine one minute and then augering in for a mighty crash the next.

    This is stupid. Dwelling on the past like this will keep me walled in. Yeah, my heart is broken and always will be. But I need to travel on. If she ever gets back in contact, I will be the happiest guy in the world. If not...well, I will have to carry on anyway.

    Yeah that really sucks, I'm sorry.  A couple years ago an ID thief starting charging payments to my account.  It took awhile for my bank to sort out the issue.  I hope you get compensation of some type Tearz.  The thieves themselves will probably never get caught unfortunately.

    Yeah those vivid dreams can seem so real and leave a lasting impression for the rest of the day.  I used to try to make sense of my dreams, write them down, and study them.  But now I don't know what to make out of them anymore.  Hope you have some happy dreams tonight! 🙂

    AloneGuy got a reaction from Ratvan in Operation Betta Rescue - 2 Weeks In   
    This is fantastic stuff Ratvan!  Informative too.  Bettas are wonderful fish.  Many years ago I rescued one from a Petco (or Petsmart, can't remember which).  He had been kept in a tiny plastic cup lined up with about a dozen others on a shelf in the store.  Once I got him home I transferred him to a 5 gal tank which I had previously prepared after researching the care and needs of Betta.  He thrived and lived a good long life 🙂  His name was Mordecai 🙂  
    I just may do the same thing again someday.  
    I love the name Mordecai, how did you come by it?

    Thanks, I spend a lot of time with my fish.
    For limited space either a Betta (like I keep) or some of the Nano Freshwater species (Danio's, Tetra, Platies, Guppies, Mollies or even some Shrimp)(Neocardina species are good)). All the water parameters are in the same range for these. Temperature wise you want to keep at 76-81F, PH 6.5-7.5. There are thing slike White Mountain Minnows that do not require a heater but require a lot of flow (powerful pump/filter) 
    Minimal set up for a Betta is a 2.5G tank, 15-20W heater (might not be needed depends a previous house of mine stayed at 79 all year long?). Bigger tank is usually "better" as it's easier to maintain the parameters. Filtration is possible through either Filters or Live Plants or a air stone could work in a small tank. I'm currently experimenting with some temporary accommodation at the moment (these are 1.5G Drinks Dispensers) I feel comfortable adding my fish to these as I perform water changes every day. These are going to be my shrimp habitats once they have cycled a bit more, i'll be adding fish to these in the next few days to jump start my shrimp cycle (need the fish poop). I would have added a picture but that'll mean i need to wait for an approval.
    Small tanks do not have to be cruel as long as you are prepared to put in a lot more work. The three above cost me a grand total of £30 for the three. Most expensive were tiny 8W heaters (hidden in the wooden base) but to be fair I had all the electrics and lights sitting around so maybe £50 from new.
    It sounds strange but it really depends on the fish and whether it gets lonely or not, if I was to buy a fish from a shop I would watch the tanks and see which fish takes an interest in me. I've been in shops (going to rescue) and the Betta's have swum to the front, you can bond really easily by talking, watching and feeding the fish. 
    More than 1 fish really depends again, sorry.  You could go for the Nano Fish, these are all shoal fish (5-6 in 5G) so will stick together but generally lack personality. Or can go for a Betta and some Shrimp (Amano, Red Cherry Shrimp) or a funky Snail such as Yellow Rabbit, Mystery Snails and Nerites. 
    Also note that I have a Betta (Kojin) who is currently 5.5 years old. Previously Geoff lived to be 8 years old. They can live  along time.
    I wish i lived in the USA, honestly Walmart and Petsmart have a $1 per Gallon Sale every now and again on tanks. I have seen people picking up crazy things for next to nothing. 
    Hope that helps, if you want to know anything else drop me a line

    During my recent depressive episode this past week or so (still ongoing depression but slowly improving) I increased my drinking to the point where I was getting physically sick and also feeling much, much worse mentally.

    I'm actually feeling a bit better today. Headache is less painful, I didn't break out into a sweat when I rode my bike to the office, and my appetite seems to be coming back.
    Now I have to simply stay away from the hooch. It sure sounds easy, doesn't it? :)
    Thanks for checking in, AG.
