Oh sweetie. What happened? Do you know? Maybe we can help. I don't want you to give up okay? Maybe just a break?

I don't know. I did everything right. I posted that his fins started turning white at the ends, but we thought that it was just new growth or something. Now he is laying lifeless at the bottom of his tank.

:( are your water params okay? you might want to check your heater in case it broke or something... that's the only thing I can think of.

Don't give up, these things happen.

I don't have a test kit to see what the parameters were but I add stresscoat and water conditioner each time I change his water. I did a 100% Saturday and a 50% today. :( My heater keeps the tank to 79-80 degrees. I thought I did everything right.
:(

Strange, I had a similar thing happen to me one day after a water change, my poor boy was dead by morning. You were doing everything just fine, don't worry.
He may have been sick for a while before you got him. Think of it this way, he had a nice, warm, loving home with good food and quality care for his last days. That was probably the best time of his little life :)

That's so true, thank you.
I'm just afraid to even try to get another little guy now.

Okay, bag some water to test at the lfs when they open.
Check his gills for ANY movement! He could still be alive.
Think about rather or not anything has changed. Have you used and airfreshener, bug spray, flee and tick powder, or any kind of chemical in the same room as the tank or on something that could have gotten it to the tank.
Did you clean the tank after the other died? What did he die with? Did you buy them at the same place?
Is there any salt-liske specks on his body or white on his gills or mouth?
