The old friends and the new friends

My wife's beautiful and unique favored fish died yesterday. He was a very unique siamese fighting fish named Sushi. Here is a picture taken the day before Sushi left us for the unknown.

He apparently died from old age. The only I noticed was that his appetite diminished.

Now for the NEW. My daughter picked this fellow out and his name is Patrick after the Patrick on sponge bob the cartoon.

Then I traded in the adopted Pleco Zappa and Mick the pink kissing fish and picked 4 small but efficient schwartzi corydorias. These only grow to 2 inches roughly where as the pleco would become hugh as well as the kisser.

Best of luck Sushi - the world keeps on a turning!

Sorry for Sushi. My old betta lived for 3.5 years before he died of old age. Sushi was gorgeous.

Your new betta, Patrick, is very pretty as well.

I like the cory picture. It looks really cool with the black background and the Tiger Barb in it. Mysterious. :)

All beautiful fish. I love the coloring on both Bettas. The Schwartzi hit a soft spot with me. I love mine. I notice that mine like to swim around mid water much more whereas my false juliis tend to stay towards the bottom more.

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
