Daiquiri..

Well, after what was a long, tedious fight with columnaris, Daiquiri passed on last night. This makes 4 that this disease has taken down in my house. She was ALMOST cured, then it decided it wasn't going to quit, and took her down the rest of the way. The last couple of days were hell watching her being eaten alive. I'm sure she wasn't faring much better. It's a relief now that she's gone, really.... Her dropsy was so bad and she looked like she was in so much pain that if she hadn't died this morning, I would have put her to sleep tonight. I'm still going to miss my baby girl. I just buried her about 10 minutes ago... This is tough. Hopefully this is the last casualty. Goodbye, sweetheart.



Here she is on day 1 with her big ol' pellet. She grew so fast.

I literally shouted "Noooo!" when I saw this. I'm so sad. I'm so sorry, Madison. =( RIP, Daiquiri.
