My sister wanted a fish in her room and being I was running out of room in my room I was happy to oblige. So we went to walmart and I convinced her to help this large female in a filthy cup. So we brought her home and upon closer inspection it turned out to be a male. He was the most docile thing I don't think I ever seen him go into a full flare. I had this guy for almost 3 years but I suspect he was already a few years old when I got him. He was a good boy and will be missed!
His last few month I knew he was dying and I am so happy he is gone. I hated to see him decline so quickly. But now he is in a better place!
