My fighter, Vulcan

Vulcan was euthanized today. He's been struggling with a tumor since maybe Octoberish (I don't remember exactly when it showed uo), and had recently begun to lose his eyesight. He couldn't swim well, rolling onto his side, and last night he couldn't even see his food to eat. I decided I'd delayed enough.
Here he is the night I got him, picture chosen to remember him as he was without the tumor. He was always playful and small, quick to follow the finger, yet slow to flare.
Here he was...


Euthanizing is tough...

I'm so sorry. You did the right thing. It sounds like it was his time to go.

He was a beautiful fish.

Thanks, 1f2f. I know it was his time to go, it just didn't feel like my time to let him go. It's been so long since I've lost a fish that I'd forgotten how it feels.

I'm so sorry CR, that sucks. I think you did the right thing though, I know it's tough but at least he doesn't have to suffer any longer. He was beautiful. RIP Vulcan

Oh, Vulcan has been such a fighter. I think you did the right thing though, even though it must have been very hard for you. At least he's not suffering anymore, and his death was painless.

RIP Vulcan, you were such a handsome guy.
