My little girl finally gave in against columnaris.
She was such a gentle, sweet, perky little darling and I really hate that it had to end this way.
She lasted a lot longer than I thought fighting against this crap and she was fighting hard. Still, I saw her suffering, and I'm glad she's not anymore.
I remember waiting for her package to come in the mail. Finally the guy came and I was so excited to get the package open, I was pretty much shaking. She was a gorgeous strawberry orange color with black stripes on the outer edges of her fins.
I buried her in the backyard under a flowering bush. I'm going to miss you so much, Orlando. I love you little girl.
