Sparky has passed away. He died this afternoon while I was out and as soon as I came home from work, I discovered him dead. He had moved over to his green silk plant and was lying on the bottom of it. I actually thought he was dying this morning and every time I looked at him today I was surprised he was still breathing.
I am sad to have lost him even though I had him for such a short time. I am relieved that he is not struggling anymore and is at peace. I don't know if he was sick or just died of old age. I got him at Petco. I will never again get a fish from them. My first one Rain, died after only 13 months, and I got him at Petco.
Thankfully, Shimmer is healthy and happy and I've had him for 13 months (from a lfs).
