For my little fighter

Just yesterday, Hope, a tiger oscar that I had adopted passed away. But this was no ordinary Oscar, she was recued by me, and she had previosly been beaten up by two texas cichlids. Sadly, I was just a day too late. She would have died sooner in her other home, but I feel like I gave her more than just a second chance, but a taste of the good life, whith no bullies, good food, and a good place to live. She had been recovering from HITH as well as severe scale loss. It seemed like she was going to make an amazing comeback, but looks like I jinxed her. God knows why she hung on to life for those long 3 months I had her... But maybe it was to get that taste of the good life, and she would not let go until she had it. God bless you Hope. I'll miss you.

I understand losing a fish to something horrible like that, and I understand how painful it can be. But she sounds like she really knew how good she had it in the past months she lived with you and made the most of it. May she RIP

I'm sorry to hear about Hope :(

You did a good thing in trying to save her.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
