This morning I woke up to find the usual Spike completley gone. Instead, he was lying on the bottom of the tank listless and breathing heavily. I took him into QT with Stress Coat and IAL but by tonight, he had passed. He was my last remaining fish of the three originals. As per usual, I always write a little eulogy so here goes:
Spike, Prince of the Java Moss and biggest pig in the family. You could never seem to fit your mouth with enough pellets, and yes, your vicious attacks on my fingers never hurt me! Besides all your anger issues with various in-animate objects and your horrible relationship with the mirror, I hope you swim freely up in the Rainbow Bridge. Please, find Stu and Ace up there and tell them that I miss them and love them as much as I always did.
PS: Please, don't attack anyone else's fish. You almost caused Ace a heart attack before.
Much Love, your forever friends, Ezio and Glaedr.
