Farewell Russell

He passed unexpectedly last night. He was fine yesterday but dead when I woke up. I think he somehow got severe fin rot over the night and that killed him. Or it could've been his food. I don't know but I hope he didn't suffer in his final hours.

RIP Russell
RIP Quicksilver
RIP Dominic

Fin rot doesn't kill overnight. I'm sure it wasn't that. RIP, Russell!

I bet it was his food or internal parasites. Never saw it coming.

Very sorry to hear about Russell. It's hard enough losing a pet after he's been sick, but when it's so unexpected like this it's very hard.

I'm so sorry about Russell. I just went through the same thing with Daffy.
