Part of my Tetra Squad.
Hey, guys. I'm relatively new here, but not to fish keeping. This is where we could post other photos of fish, and I know there's a betta tribute section, but I wanted to take a second and post a tribute to another fish (the tetra in the front; biggest one).
this 5-6 year old tetra was one of the first fish to get me back into fish keeping after a very unfortunate event. He also survived Hurricane Sandy as my basement began to flood, because I did not have the resources to take he and his tankmates with me (even if I did, I wouldn't have had a tank if my tank got wrecked). He survived the ordeal, as saltwater and sewage came into my basement.
A day or so ago, he died, after failing to respond to treatment (granted, he was 6 years old), although he acted totally normal.
It only felt right to post something, somewhere, because of how much I loved this one particular tetra.
Thanks for reading. :)
