Claimed 2 more lives today.
Velvet hit my 15 gallon, with 4 boys in it. My rosetail was the first to catch it. He was my second rosetail, and after this, no matter how pretty they are, I'm not getting anymore. I had hoped that even with the rosetail deformity, they could live long natural lives. But unfortunately not. This tank was clean, and yet he still caught it.
His neighbor never seemed to have it, but he must have b/c he is dead today also. He didn't have visible signs, just lethargy and bloody fins. Today I found him with completely shredded fins. I don't know how that happened b/c the dividers are fine.
RIP pretty boys
