Yeah, seriously! Even turtles are like that.. I read that animals that are usually preyed on by others have a tendency to hide symptoms till its too late.. It sucks really.. I found Chunkers acting strange this morning, she's all clampy.. I'm worried. :( I don't know what's going on...
Sadly, that's one of the big problems with fishies. They get these internal problems stewing inside them but they don't give us any physical signs until it's too late to help. If only they bloated up at the BEGINNING of an illness, not the end.
Thanks Sakura, *hugs* I'm relieved that whatever it was, was fast and he didn't have to suffer.. Although it was very sudden, he seemed okay 2 days ago.. I'm happy I could show him that there is more to the world than a dirty little bowl.. I'm alright though, I feel a bit sad but that was all I could do for him, medicines wouldn't have helped him at this stage. Some of his scales had actually come off :(
I'm really sorry about Zomg, Fighter. I really think he must have had something brewing all this time that was leftover from the pet store. You took great care of him and at least he had a good happy 2 months in clean water. *hugs*
