Lost two of my girls :(

Beatrix went missing and I found her dead. I'm pretty sure one of my other girls was bullying her. Then the day before I left to go camping last weekend I looked at Pansy and she was pine coned. NO! I tried to treat her, but obviously, since I was gone for the weekend there wasn't much I could do. I quickly got the other girls into treated water and I'm trying to nip this in the bud. So far so good...

I'm just sad I lost two of my favorite girls. :(

I'm sorry DH. They were pretty girls, too. Still, with dropsy not much can be done ): Sometimes things just don't go as planned...

Im so sorry! I know how it feels to come home after a vaca and find your favorite fish pine coned or dead.

When i got back from seattle my favorite girl suki was bloated and pine coned.

R.I.P may you swim peacefully in heaven

I'm so sorry DH

Boy.. this has been a rough week for my rescues. First Beatrix and then Merlin and then I found out that Chaos and Demetri passed away too (I had given them and Alexander to my Mom).

You gave Beatrix a great home. I know she was very happy living with you. She was able to know what it was like in something other than a green cup.
