Dead Fish, Live and Learn
Just had to put down one of my Gourami. He'd been bloated and mostly hanging out in a corner for the better part of a week. I'd been hoping he was just feeling bad, did a water change and crossed my fingers he'd shake it off. Eventually he started listing to one side. I don't want him dead in the tank, or to suffer. So there you go.
I lost another of the three a few weeks ago, so especially for the health of the last one (who seems normal still) this seems the right thing to do. It's always harder when individual fish die rather than one of out a school you can't distinguish between.
