Oh my God. I feel like today is one of those days where I just want to be done with everything. First my favorite fish died, which is frustrating enough. Later, I went to see the sorority and Jess, the hm that I bred to Ares, is sick. She got beat up bad and doesnt look so good. So I divided her off with some paraguard and started cleaning the tank. Now, the filter stopped working and I spilt water all over the place. The tank looks like **** and nothing is working either. So freaking frustrated! These are the days that make you wonder why you ever got into fish keeping.

Ugh.

We all have those bad days, hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Jess's belly has gone white and she's sulking. I don't think she will make it through the night but I am trying my best. Paraguard, clean water, ial...

There is not much else you can really do Matt. This hobby can be cruel sometimes. Keep your chin up better days ahead.

I know :(

I ended up putting her down (clove oil). By the time I made the decision, it was obvious that she was suffering, and would be dead soon.

It frustrates me SO MUCH that I do everything to take care of them, I spend hours a week caring for them, they eat some of the best foods money can buy, they all have at last 2.5 heated gallons of water to themselves, and yet I've lost five in the last month and a half, two of those in one day. Ugh.

Bad luck has to end sometime!

I'm very sorry that you had to put Jess down, butt at least she's not suffering anymore. The bad luck does have to end, and hopefully it will be soon.

I'm done with petstore fish and I am done with long fins. From this day on, I refuse to buy any more. I may still use a couple long finned fish to introduce certain traits to hmpk, but other than that I'm done.
