Recently I bought a gorgeous giant female from someone on the forum to contribute to my sorority. She was probably my favorite fish in the mix and I loved her so much even though she was crazy. From the moment I got her she paced the glass following her reflection or trying to get out, or dug in her rocks constantly for more food. She was truly a beautiful fish and one that I was really proud of having.
This morning when I came to feed her she was sitting still with her head buried in her rocks. She seemed in perfect shape yesterday. He color looks washed out, but not gray, some places. I have no idea why she died because she had a perfect life with me. I only had her about a week, and the whole time she always seemed stressed or bothered no matter what I did for her. I hope that she went quickly and painlessly.
I am having just to go back to bed this morning. This is really hard for me, and discouraging as far as my sorority goes. I haven't even put them all in the tank yet and one is dead. I keep panicking that, somehow, everyone else could die too even though they are in QT. I just don't want to do anything today, I just.....can't.
