Well, I don't normally post these threads....but Ciel was special. He deserved it.
Ciel was my lovely little Christmas fish last year, a fish I swear had been waiting weeks for me at Petsmart and I finally broke down and bought him on December 23 and had to sneak him home.
He was such a cute little guy, very lively, very interactive, but with his own little independent feisty streak.
The past several months, he grew a lot in my care and marbled up quite a bit(something I had planned to show off here on our one year together....)
A few weeks ago, he had a little mishap with the filter intake....but he seemed to be just as feisty as ever and ready to heal up nicely again.
Unfortunately, it seems he was struck by something else, something I maybe didn't diagnose properly or treat in time...and this morning I discovered that he had passed away in QT.
He will be buried outside in our lovely little garden later today......RIP Ciel Phantomhive.
