Ode to Sam :(

I am sooo bummed out. Sam has always been my hardiest, healthiest and toughest fish. Almost double the size of Diablo and Chester, he earned the tough 'Merican name "Samuel Colt". I noticed today before I left for work his fins were clamped- however as soon as he noticed me he started acting totally normal. He ate his food and wiggled at me for more. I thought to myself I should do a water change when I get home tonight, even though He just had one 2 days ago (he lived in a 10 gal.). When I came home, he was gone :(

I had just taken pictures in anticipation of creating a thread to show off his dramatic color change. Good bye my little fire work fish, say hi to little Siku for me. X

Here are some picts from AB, and when he first arrived- then a few taken just a couple days ago during his water change.

I'm sorry you lost Sam. He was a very beautiful boy.

RIP Sam.

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