In a few hours i noticed i couldnt find george anywhere!? Me and my sister panicked and looked around for him then decided to move around the objects in the tank to see if he was there. We found him floating upside down under the bridge and took him out.*s.i.p. Goerge* :( i havent had him for a full two weeks so i can return him back to the pet store. I don't know what went wrong so i checked the water and everything was fine. He was the one being nipped at by the more agressive guppy i bought (i returned him and got a matching sunrise guppy to stick with George) and had some of his tail nipped off and he seemed to be recovering... I thought you all would want to know...

Jessica, I'm SO sorry! I completely missed this post - I'm really sorry that you lost your poor little guppy! *cries* How have things been since then? I hope all is well. . .

No kidding, Jaysee! It's like The Hunger Games in there!
