Unhappy R.I.P Akira <3

I lost my beautiful Akira last night, just after midnight. He was my first fish. I didn't think it was possible to love a fish so much. His personality was huge...he was so playful and quirky and funny. My husband nicknamed him Fiesty Fins!

His appetite went away and I believe he had internal parasites. I put him in a QT yesterday, but he had suddenly started to bloat a little and his breathing was laboured. It happened so fast.

I'm going to miss him so much...now there's no one to greet me every time I walk into the room.

Rest in Peace, my sweet boy. You will never be forgotten!

Akira as in the groundbreaking anime movie Akira? Very impressive name for a very impressive fish. Old looking fellow too. I'm sure he had a wonderful life.

Thank you so much for your kind thoughts. Yes, he was named after the anime. He was seriously the funniest fish I've ever seen...I miss his quirkiness...
