Yesterday morning I woke up to watch my RTS having severe difficulties swimming, staying upright, .... It's always sad to see a fish dying, but what made the sight even sadder was my other RTS actively trying to do anything he could to help it's buddy out. That included trying to prop him up to try and swim, fending off the tiger barbs when they realized what was happening, .... He has passed on now. :( I was able to get my RTS a new buddy from the LFS so hopefully they can bond like the previous one.

I'm really sorry to hear that, leifthebunny. Fingers crossed that the two of them do bond though :)

Thanks. Last night the two were swimming around each other and no torn fins this morning, so I'm hopeful. :)

Very sorry to hear about your sad loss

Sounds like his new buddy will hopefully make up for his & your loss :)
