I lost my beautiful Akira last night, just after midnight. He was my first fish. I didn't think it was possible to love a fish so much. His personality was huge...he was so playful and quirky and funny. My husband nicknamed him Fiesty Fins!
His appetite went away and I believe he had internal parasites. I put him in a QT yesterday, but he had suddenly started to bloat a little and his breathing was laboured. It happened so fast.
I'm going to miss him so much...now there's no one to greet me every time I walk into the room.
Rest in Peace, my sweet boy. You will never be forgotten!
