Ben has passed away.
This past Saturday, My wife and I finally were able to move into our new home. The last few things I needed to do was take down Ben's tank and move him.
I transferred him into his bowl and used the old tank water so it was the right temp. Well every thing went well Ben was not happy about the bowl. I completely emptied, and cleaned his tank and got it ready to move.
There was a rain delay with loading the rest of our things, The temp. dropped outside and inside the Apt. very rapidly. It dropped from 75 degrees down to the low 50's and the rain was so very heavy. Being busy with getting the rest of the things loaded I forgot about Ben being in his bowl instead of his tank.
Three hours went by before My son came up to me saying Ben didn't look to good. He was on the bottom of the bowl on his side and not breathing.
Ben I am so sorry this happened to you. You brought me so much joy watching you and the things you did to amuse me. I will miss you and remember you. I will never forget the way you were.
