Swim in Peace, Hercules!

I woke up this morning and did my usual animal check, I checked the cats to make sure they had food and water, then my rabbit for food and water, next I checked my fish, Sparrow is good, Rex is good, oh no... Hercules was not good.. He was upside down and on the filter, the part where it sucks in the water.. I'm not sure exactly if that is what killed him, or if it just sucked him to the filter after he had already died.. Last night he was swimming differently then normal. He was going crazy so I thought he was having fun. I'm just so bummed. I only had him since January 20th. He started out in a tiny tank with no heater or filter, but after I learned everything he needed I went and bought him a proper set up. All I wanted was to give him a great life, and I hope I did..

Swim in Peace, Hercules!

Awh, that's sad. Sometimes they leave us way too soon and we never know why.. :(
At least he had a good life before he died.
Also, if your tank is divided, unless you have it 100% sealed off, I'd probably do a good water change and clean your whole tank really well to keep the other guys safe. You never know
