"There's something about the ones who bond with us. Where we want to do anything for them right?"
Mmmm.... it's called LOVE, when you get right down to it. :)
I had a female pregnant guppy die this morning.... her mate was literally in shock... all the color had drained from him and he was curled into a "c" shape.
I removed him from the tank, as some of the other fish had nipped at the females body and had gotten a taste for guppys, and placed him in the divided 5.
I feel so sorry for this little fish... he loved his mate. He was always with her, displaying his mating colors. He was absolutely devestated by her passing, as striken as any human would be in similar circumstances.
I though I'd come home and find him dead. But he is uncurled and swimming, still drained of color. I've done what I can to make him safe and comfortable... I wish I could do more.
I know most people would think I'm nuts going on about the drama of these two tiny fish. But all of God's creatures matter.. which the aquarium hobby helps us to realize.
