RIP Toothless & Cloud

I 'adopted' Toothless from an online friend who found him with fin rot so bad that it had advanced to body rot - and that's how he got his name.

Poor Toothless had done so well and grown his fins back in - then silly me tried a 55 gallon divided tank with DIY dividers that slipped. One fish single handedly killed Toothless, Rosey, and himself.

None of the fish died immediately - Rosey was bad off b/c he was a rosetail so wasn't strong enough to handle the injuries. He had scales missing along with massive fin damage. I had hoped to nurse all back to health, but the injuries were too severe. Rosey died about a week later.

Cloud (the culprit) died yesterday, and Toothless died today. About 2/3 weeks later.

RIP beautiful boys.

Oh my gosh, Cajun, I am sooo sorry... :( Poor guys... You never would have seen that coming. My guys are almost all in divided tanks too... scary.. :/ I feel especially bad about Rosie, seeing as how i feel personally connected to him (making his drawing) :( I'm very sorry for your loss. They were beautiful boys.

My pets:
Celie the spoiled 8 yr old Chihuahua
Arwin the naughty Papillon puppy

No fishies for me right now... expecting a baby in June 2013!

Oh no - that's just awful. I'm sorry you lost your fish Amy :(

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