Horton :(

I found Horton dead in the tank today. I saw him this morning and was just fine but, these sort of things are expected in a cichlid tank. I believe his 'girlfriend' was the one that did it, shes now extremely colored up. I guess I will never get used to this sort of thing happening, but its the cichlid way of life

Goodbye Horton, you were an awesome dude.(he got his name because of his nose and we got him around the time the 'Horton Hears a Who' movie was out, and it just fit.)


125g cichlid - 14g biocube reef - 6g planted Edge - 20g L goldfish/African Clawed Frog

that's a real shame,he was a good looking fish. :(

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
