My two favorites died in the same night :(

My beautiful Gumbo, who I'd tried to spawn once and it was a no go, who I was determined to spawn to get his babies - is gone. He's the most beautiful fish I've ever owned and I'm not sure I'll ever find another like him. I've only had him since February. He was only 10 months old. About 3 weeks ago when I was changing his water, he fell to the ground, he must have had some severe internal injuries he could not recover from. Good-bye my fishy friend

And this was his most recent picture

And then my rosetail, who was my 2nd favorite passed in the night as well. I never really gave him a name besides Rosey - even though it is a girlish name. This poor guy fell victim to the most aggressive male I own, in a divided tank that was not secure enough. I was positive I'd be able to nurse him back to health, but when I went to change his water last night, I couldn't find him. Finally I flipped over his cave hoping to see him swim out, but he was floating at the ceiling of it.

I've only had him for a few weeks. The white headed neighbor you see is the one that ripped him to shreds.

Thanks for the hugs, I surely need them. I'm taking Gumbo hard enough and for Rosey to go in the same night .... well it just makes it harder. I'm honestly having a harder time with this than any other fish I've ever owned :(

I'm so sorry about Gumbo and Rosey. They were so beautiful.

RIP fishies :(

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