Sid Vicious died.
I'm so upset. Out of all crap that has happened to me lately this is by far one of the worst things.
A few days after I removed him from the fry he developed ich. I was treating him with high heat and salt but no change. I decided to treat him with Quick Cure and started that 3 days ago. Today I found him dead in my hospital tank.
I don't know how I'm going to tell Mom. He was her fish and I promised her that he would get better. Everything I've ever read says that ich is easily cured and most fish get over it. I'm scared that maybe it was the medication that killed him but I can't see how since even my little fry are doing ok with the meds.
He was a healthy fish. Besides the ich there was nothing wrong. He shouldn't have died. He was so young and such a good father.. too good to be true. I had such high hopes for him and his future spawns.
I'm so discouraged. I'm almost to the point where I want to just re-home all the fish and get out all together. First with Mr. Pink, then Demetri has velvet which isn't getting better, then the Sid got ich, then the marble fry got it too, now Sid is dead. I can't take much more of this.
I just hope some of his babies make it.
