I knew it would come. I just knew. I thank everyone for the words of teaching and kindness. Red was my first fish and as the first, was doomed from the start. Red got me into alot of trouble, mostly because of things that I had done. Or the things that I did not realize was wrong. His issues were great, my patience was thin. He had contracted swim bladder at the age of eight months. I was then told that he would be dead in less than a month. That was four months ago. He bagn to bite the tail, turning him from crowntail to a plakat looking thing. I kept the water pure, medicated, perfect. There was just no saving him. Red Foreman Damron, may you rest in peace. Good bye.
