I'm just... really bummed. Anael, my whiteish pk, is dying. I got him around Christmas, moved him with Calder across the country with me. A while ago I posed about a small tumor he developed. It's been getting worse. Once side of his belly is growing slightly-- and he's become so lethargic. He's getting skinnier, even though I feed him with the others, the same as they get. I feed him frozen bloodworms at least twice a week.
It's just breaking my heart. Sometimes he gets up off the bottom of the tank and zooms around, and it's like he's fine again. He gets playful and still jumps for my fingers at feeding time.
But more and more I look over, and I see him laying on the bottom of the tank, looking dead. Recently I've been going over and tapping on the glass to check on him. I'm just... It's hard. It's not as hard when a fish just gets sick and passes, imo. But when it's drawn out. It's really sad to see.
