Unhappy Mistakes I regret

I lost the love of my life, a tiny mosquito fish that never grew after 2 years. He was the only survivor throughout the 2 years out of 4-6 fish. He survived and thrived (even though he was the smallest). Once I upgraded to a 20 gallon tank, I put him in too quick after I had bought it and he died. I miss him so much. He is irreplacable, im obssessed with guppies, but I recently realized its all because they look similar to mosquito fish. By the way, mosquito fish are look just like guppies but they have no color. His name was Benny, because his best friend that he would spend all his days with was super fast so I named the other one Jet. Therefore they were Benny and the Jet...

I'm sad to hear that too. It's always such a bummer to lose fish

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

aww,sorry about benny.
it's true you know,it really is sad to lose something that you've cared for.

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.

i understand your love for Mosquitofish, I have 8...lol


Thanks to me, my family lives in a zoo. Could the always increasing number of fish, 3 Snails, 9 Shrimp, 3 Caudates, Dog, Cat, and 2 Birds POSSIBLY have ANYTHING to do with it?
