Oh no!! :c

I woke up this morning to Frusciante... dead. No warning... no anything :C I think I'm going to take down the tank and disinfect EVERYTHING because I can't stand to lose another fish. I feel so horrible... 2 fish in one month, what am I doing wrong?

I'm sorry.....:(
If they were healthy, maybe they died of old age and it was just happened to be like that. Have you cycled the tank or did frequent waterchanges and used something to keep them from getting bothered if you did a fish in cycle?
That's all I am thinking could have happened....though they might show signs if it was that.
It's a good idea to disinfect everything and start over.
Again, i'm sorry that happened. I'd find it hard and quite upsetting if that happened to me..

Well I've never, ever had a problem up until now! I changed the water once a week 40% it wasn't cycled because I don't have the time for it. Now I'm changing it twice a week because I have 4 guys instead of 3. Or I did. Now I only have 3. I know Fishy died of old age, but Fru couldn't be much older than a year. I got him off aquabid. I'm just going to take it all down and start all over. :c that sucks.

Oh, okay. A lot of people don't cycle their tanks, which is okay as long as water changes are done frequently, which you do. So it should have been fine.
Yea....

That's horrible hun *hugs tightly* You have a divided tank right? Just to be on the safe side I'd take everything down and give it a good long clean while putting the other boys in QT just in /case/ it's something in the tank. Probably just bad turn of events but it doesn't hurt to make sure right?

You're not doing anything wrong sometimes pets just go particularly fish. I'm sure he was happy he was in your care.

Aww, thanks both of you :) *hugs back*
Yes, I have a divided tank and since I have some free time today, I definitely am taking it down and bleaching everything in there and making a huge water change. I think I'm just going to stick with 3 fishies, 4 seems to be too many for me to handle lol. Please pray (or if you aren't religious, good vibes) that the bad luck will turn around!

I'm SO sorry! :( It's so hard when it's sudden and you don't know why. I'd do just what you're doing. Don't feel bad. If there's nothing to see then what can you do?

Aw I'm so sorry for your lose! R.I.P. Frusciante. Losing fish hurts just as much as losing any other pet.
