My two favorites died in the same night :(

My beautiful Gumbo, who I'd tried to spawn once and it was a no go, who I was determined to spawn to get his babies - is gone. He's the most beautiful fish I've ever owned and I'm not sure I'll ever find another like him. I've only had him since February. He was only 10 months old. About 3 weeks ago when I was changing his water, he fell to the ground, he must have had some severe internal injuries he could not recover from. Good-bye my fishy friend











And this was his most recent picture


And then my rosetail, who was my 2nd favorite passed in the night as well. I never really gave him a name besides Rosey - even though it is a girlish name. This poor guy fell victim to the most aggressive male I own, in a divided tank that was not secure enough. I was positive I'd be able to nurse him back to health, but when I went to change his water last night, I couldn't find him. Finally I flipped over his cave hoping to see him swim out, but he was floating at the ceiling of it.



I've only had him for a few weeks. The white headed neighbor you see is the one that ripped him to shreds.

I'm so sorry for your losses, at least they had a loving mom to look after them in their time of need. They were beautiful and healthy. RIP Gumbo and Rosey.

I'm sorry about Gumbo and Rosey, Gumbo was one of my favourite fish on here. Both are now swimming happily under the rainbow bridge. *hugs*

Thanks for the hugs, I surely need them. I'm taking Gumbo hard enough and for Rosey to go in the same night .... well it just makes it harder. I'm honestly having a harder time with this than any other fish I've ever owned :(
