S.I.P Scar

My DH picked up a young Oscar from Walmart a little over a week ago that was in very Poor health and despite our best efforts we lost Scar today ... I do not know if it was because of his otherwise poor health, the fact that the power went out for awhile (due to the storms) causing the filtration to go out or a combination of both... either way I can tell you he had quite the personality and put up one helluva fight...


S.I.P You are now free to Swim till your hearts content beneath the Rainbow Bridge....

Sorry to hear :( It was nice of you to try to give him a good life.

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

My Gargamel (Tiger) is a fantastic eater... My Azrael (Red Flame) on the other hand can be finicky/stubborn... But in the end everyone eats......... They get a variety of foods everything from fresh veggies to Live minnows/guppies, shrimp, scallops, pellets, crickets, worms etc... You name it I'm sure they have tried it....
