It's with a heavy heart that I write in this section of the forum. I found out while I was at work that Mr. Squiggles lost his battle with Dropsy.
He came down with it out of the blue about a month ago.. his battle was touch and go but I really expected him to get better..
When I first brought Mr. Squiggles home in October he was a pale, shy little crown tail... as the days went on he grew in size and vibrance. He never failed to bring a smile to my face when he would swim around like he owned the entire room. I had never had a fish flare as much as this little guy. I always enjoyed fish keeping, but this fish made me love it. I'd do anything to have him back.
I hope he knew on some level that I really loved him, and did everything in my power to help him.
Even at the end his little eyes would always be looking towards me..
When I first got him:
Puppy dog eyes
His angry face
He was my little stunner.
:( I love you Mr. Squiggles.
