Alpine is no longer ith us :( he passed away sometime this mornin, I last checked on him at 2am
His breathing was slow and steady, he was completely unable to swim, and when he tried it was as if his whole body was stiff
Alpine was EXTREMELLY under weight when I got him, prior to switching him to the 3 gallon, he was in a 1 gallon with 1 tsp of espom salt, 100% water changes every day, he LOVED he 3 gal though and thats were he first started flaring, he went down hill fast, I have another under weight boy, unnamed, and I really dont want anything like this to happen again
