Tux lived with me 5 months, 8 days, and 2 hours, ever since I opened his shipping box on Feburary 18th.
I had wanted, so, so, badly for him to be mine for a long time. Forever (not that it'd be possible). He was my aquabid baby, even though he was already 3 and a half months old when I got him.
Oh Tux, sometimes I wonder why you didn't tell me you were sick. I know you were sick with swim bladder disorder, but I guess I didn't realize how sick. If you'd shown any symptoms of anything at all, you know I would have tried my best to cure you.
You were a sweety pie, and I guess all I can do now is thank you for spending that little time with me. You gave me so much joy, but now I want you to swim on under the rainbow bridge. The silver streams and peace await you, so don't hesitate. Rest in peace Tux, I'll miss you.
