Oh no!! I'm so sorry VG, he was pretty :( Don't be too hard on yourself, sometimes things like that happen. My boyfriend had to trash a tank he had because it became a death trap. It just happens. I'm sure that with a new tank everything will be fine. I'm sorry about Gulden though, RIP.

Oh, no! I'm so sorry about Gulden! He was gorgeous!! I'm sure it wasn't anything you did. He probably had something when you brought him home.

I'm so sorry about Gulden. We can't know what gets to our fish every time so don't feel like you did anything wrong. If you kept him in crappy conditions, then you can say you did something to cause his early death but we know that's not the case.

If it were me, I'd do the same and toss the plants and gravel. Wash the tank out in diluted bleach solution in hot water. Then rinse a boatload with conditioned water and let it air dry. These little buggers get expensive so anything you can save will be helpful.

RIP Gulden :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
