Its been a difficult month...

Its just been a bad month all together...

I almost lost both Koi and Neptune. They are ok, just not 100% with the ball game. They swim as if half paralyzed and have something wrong with their nervous system.

Neptune has a fistula but seems happy... Basically a fistula is when something happens between the passage way of to organs, in his case somewhere dealing with his bowls. He swelled up and literally pop'd, causing him to get a sore that is about 1/4" in diameter on his chest, that he poo's out Yea...

So 3/3 of my males are ill, who knows what'll happen but my tanks have been handicapped for them... But I wont let this discourage me.

I bought 2 more males today... Will get photos of them up later.

Really sorry to hear about your troubles. Glad you're not going to get discouraged, in the face of that it would be hard not to be. Here's to things swinging around your way!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
