Eros

Eros passed away. I pretty much knew it was coming. He's been struggling ever since I moved him up here, he was very stressed and that turned into fin rot and I think he must have gotten some other infection along with it. I tried salt then I tried meds but I never saw an improvement. These past few days I new he was going to go but I was giving him to the end of the week before euthanizing him, he beat me to it.

I had high hope of spawning him, he was a nice fish and a 1st place winner. I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

Ever since I bought him he just seemed not as healthy as the other fish. He got stressed easily and I guess its just the stress that killed him. I know I did everything I could but it's still sad.

R.I.P Pretty boy..

Thanks guys. I'm just happy he's gone, he looked so horrible and didn't have hardly any fins left. He's in a much happier place now.

I'm doing a full count tomorrow but I'd say I have about 20 left. Rio and Ada just spawned today so I have eggs in the nest but I don't know how many yet (seems like a pretty small spawn).

This definitely has not been a good summer for my hobby. I've lost Fish, Mr. Pink, Sid Vicious, and now Eros. I've lost all my snails and shrimp (mostly due to moving them) and almost an entire spawn. Demetri, Phoebe, and Chaos have made it through velvet but they're pretty skinny.

I'm going to try to put off getting any new fish for a while. I don't have any money right now anyways and my living situation is up in the air right now so hopefully by the time I'm ready to get some new guys I'll have fixed whatever is causing all these problems.

For me it doesn't matter how many fish I have. I have a special attachment to each and every one of them and it makes me just as sad to loose one having 20 fish as it would if he were my only fish. I spend time each and every day with each of my fish, I learn there personalities and quirks and I love them all equally
