I forgot one thing - we added almond leaves to the tank a while back, changing them out with the water changes. The leaves were added after mild symptoms had begun.
No - Unfortunately the guy who was selling her was shady and unhelpful, but my daughter fell in love with Victoria when we visited the store, so we bought her despite the risk. I imagine that, given the plastic cup she was being kept in, she might have been sick/stressed from the get go,Do you know how old she was when you got her?
I am so, so sorry about Victoria. I hope God blesses you and your family about your loss of this friend you known for a while.Folks -
Victoria passed away last night. It's official this time.
Given the information I shared above, does anyone have any idea about what caused her demise? I ask because we want to be sure its safe to introduce new fish to the tank (and we want our sadness to prompt the rescue of a new fish ASAP).
