So I had a girl die in my sorority a couple weeks ago, and I brushed it off as a random death, no visible signs, so I figured it was her time, I had had her for awhile. Then just now, I found another dead one, but instead of floating, she sank. I think this was just because the gasses from rotting fish hadn't formed yet, but yeahh. Then I noticed she and the other one had both been noticeably eggy before the death, but neither was eggy afterward. Both were larger girls, one was the dominant, and one I had no idea (I had added heer like a week before and hadnt had time to sit own and watch)
