RIP Gwynfor

This must be the hardest thing for me to write. My little Gwynfor passed away on me today. He was fine last night. Acting like himself. Ate his food. Earlier today, his movements caught my eye as they always do. But alarm bells started immediately. He was having trouble swimming. So I hurried to grab a cup to try to help him. It took me less than a minute to find one. In that short time, he died. I have no idea what happened to him. He was my favorite. I would sit here and watch him as he would watch me. He was such a big comfort to me and now he is gone. He is my third loss in a week.

I wonder why you are loseing so many. Has your city done anything to the water? My aunts city did something to their water and people lost their fish, and other animals due to whatever they put in it. It seems something is going on. Maybe get some water from another source for now until you can rule out your city water. I hope you don't lose eva to!

I really don't know. I hope not. My puppy drinks our water. I'm still in shock that I lost Gwynfor. He was perfectly fine the night before. He died so quickly. I was a little shocked when I lost the other two earlier in the week as well though. The female had started looking and acting better and then declined suddenly and rapidly. Eva doesn't look good.

If they are not sharing a tank I would assume possibly the water. If they are sharing a tank or were in the same tank I would wash everything really well as it could have been a disease. But if not I would go and buy some spring water and see if that doesn't perk them up a bit.

switch the water to distilled, it is less likely to have chemicals in it.

Eva seems to be reacting poorly to being conditioned. She looks eggy now and ate less today. Very unlike her.
