I just lost Baka this morning. I had him for almost a year after my boyfriend bought a 3 gallon tank for me for my birthday because he knew I wanted to get one. Baka had been acting odd for the past couple days, just either floating on the top or laying on the bottom, but had no physical signs of illness or anything. He must have had something because he wasn't eating anything. I left the food floating on top for longer than usual, but he wouldn't eat. The water was fine. I just did a 25% water change after I noticed he was odd just to make sure. I went to check on him after I woke up and couldn't find him anywhere. I eventually found him in a rock cave that I bought when I first got him but he had never shown any interest in it, usually swimming through the plants, instead. He wasn't moving at all and so I scooped the rock out and he still didn't move after I picked it up with my net, and I knew he was dead. I would have buried him, but my dog likes to dig holes in the back yard (he almost dug up my rabbit that I buried last year, even though I put some heavy stones over it and had him in a box. Had him for a little over 5 years) so I flushed him. My brother sang in the background as I flushed him.
