I don’t exactly know what to say right now. It’s really hard to find the words when you can’t exactly process what happened.
One of the things I was hoping that wouldn’t happen for at least another year or two, happened. He was found and bought in Petco on March 4th. Months passed and he became one of my favorite fish I ever owned. He reminded me of his namesake in every way and I throughly enjoyed watching him and seeing as he tormented his fish brothers. He was one of the few fish I thought who would have stayed with me until he passed of old age. Instead, he passed tonight from something internal or unknown.
Baby Buddha is really going to be missed by a lot of people, but really I’m going to miss his little grumpy face and his blue lipstick when I look at the tank now.
RIP little guy, and I hope you get to swim with the others.
