Disappointed :(

I was gone to Halifax for 2 weeks and my sisters/mom were coming up to watch the babies in that time.. Lakitu was healing nicely from tail biting, and last night I was admiring his full growth. Didn't take pictures bc that would just be foolishness (sarcasm)... I just turned on my lamp and he bit off his tail again! I'm so disappointed :(
I love my fishie... But it puts you back a notch after all this time you thought you were doing good by him (I upped his tank, got a heater, real plants and put him on my desk so he can be around people) And he bit his tail again!! (*cries)

He looks like a swordtail platy now :/

My boy massacred his tail last night as well. Sometimes it doesn't matter that you have given them all the proper love and attention they could need, they do something like this out of spite (well that's my theory with my brat fish).

At this point keeping his water extra clean is about the only thing you can do to keep rot at bay. *offers sympathetic shoulder*

:( Thanks. It's not what you wake up to find!! I guess it's better than finding dead fish though! I'll get over it. But he's not getting treats today!!
