Goodbye to Xander, the fierce orchid

I want to say goodbye to Xander who was not even 1 year old.
I got you on the 25th of May when you were 7 months old and even though I only had you for three months, the bond felt much more stronger than that.

But then you developed a sudden case of dropsy and pineconed within a single day.
I put you to sleep with clove oil because I didn't want you to suffer.
I am not sure what went wrong, but I will find peace in knowing I did everything to prevent this, caring for your tank, your water and feeding you only with the best. Yet... things still can happen, unfortunately.

I am sad we had to part so early, my black prince.
Swim in peace.
