SIP to my favorite male!! :'(

My favorite boy died overnight.

I feel so horrible. I dont know what happened. He wasnt acting weird, he was still eating like a little piggy, etc. But I woke up this morning and found him dead.

He's the father to my current spawn. So I'm really hoping I can find a boy similar to him in there. I have never found one comparable online...I'll have to start keeping an even closer eye on these babies now to keep the survival rate as high as possible since it's such a small spawn. :(

He was the best dad ever, and gave me my first successful spawn and some very strong babies. I wish I could have done more to keep him well and alive. I already did everything I knew of for him, but there always could be more to do I guess...

Oh, I'm sorry! He was so pretty, and his coloring was so unusual. I always thought of him as a 'reverse butterfly' with those pretty blue edges on his fins.

Thank you

He had my dream coloration. It was so vivid and interesting, I'd never seen a fish that resembled him before.

If I cant find a fry to resemble him I dont know what I'll do to continue his line now.
