another farewell :(

the dreaded fish lice finally took their toll on my buddy godfrey :(:(:( ive had him for over a year, and thanks to gettin 1 fish from my lfs, its killed about 10 of my beauties. i thought this guy would pull through, but came home sunday, he had gone. im really very upset about this. i have written a complaint to my lfs and have vowed never,ever to go in there again. my nearest fish store from here is now a 50 mile round trip! but its worth it for the lives of my fishy friends. rip godfrey, ull b missed :(:(:(:(

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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.

thats to bad, it's awful when you get a fish from a pet store that ends up getting your other ones sick.

I'm really sorry to hear that you've been disheartened in the hobby. I can understand how it can happen, but to me it is worth it. I hope you will have more luck with the rest and get into it again.
