Waldo died. :(

Waldo.


My Waldo passed away a few minutes ago, as I was playing with the camera, trying to get updates. After a few pics he was acting himself . . . then out of the blue he shot up to the surface, took a big gulp and died.

It was so unbelievably sudden. I didn't even have time to prepare myself. I'm still in shock.

RIP, my sweet one. You were beautiful.

Oh no - poor Waldo... and poor you, too. My Sid passed that suddenly and I know what a dreadful shock it is.

Waldo was a beautiful little guy. I am so sorry for your loss.

He was young and healthy for the time I had him, in his prime.

Thanks all for the kind words . . . even this morning I went to his (empty) tank and wiggled my finger in hopes that he would come over and nip it like he did . . . it case yesterday was all a dream.
