Hey Everyone, I just wanted to give you an update. Flare has passed away. I figured after seeing the symptoms of Dropsy, that he would not have lived much longer. In his final hours, I was able to feed him and his tank stayed very warm. He did not show any signs of struggle, so I trust that he went peacefully. It's sad to think that he is dead, but I hated seeing him in pain, too. Never being one to flush a fish down the toilet, I put him in a jar, put his name and years (Date I bought him to day he died) on it, and buried him next to my other pets. I put lilly petals in the grave around him. I just wanted to take a picture of his jar to have...I already went out and bought another one, a halfmoon, but he is not red. I am thinking; however, that I may get a Flare the 2nd one day because he was very special to me. Thank you to everyone for all of their suggestions and sticking with me on this!
