Oh Kelso I'm so sorry to hear all this - Had you just been the one talking me into them cute guys.
For starters I'm certain you did the right thing there, rather then let him suffer lord knows how long. For IDing any sickness....there's SO MANY internal sicknesses, just like with us humans...unless you know someone with a Lab and mini tools to d a fish autopsy, its very hard to ever figure out just what happened. You know like my PLeco not too long ago here fine and bouncy one min and floating dead the next min; its horrible I know, but there's not a single thing I could see you could have done to prevent this.

This is true...I hope this doesn't discourage you though! I still have my other two, and I miss the little trio, the two I have are so cute and playful that either way, I still think it's worth having them! I guess there is nothing I really could have done...but I'm keeping a close eye on the tank...and everything seems normal.

Twenty-Eight:
1 Otos, 6 Guyana Leaf Fish, 2 Malayan Leaf Fish, 1 Orange Head Tapajos, 4 Bronze Cories, 3 Peppered Cories, 2 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory

Seventy-Five:
3 Thread-finned Acara, 1 Jurupari, 1 Spiny Eel, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 1 Festivum, 1 Spotted Raphael

I hear you, I got all paranoid too and kept checking my Kissing Gourami I donno how many gazillion times a day over & over JUST to be sure after the pleco died.

But I mean let's face it, often enough we buy fish as adults....but we can ask them "Are you adult as in 1 yrs old or 100yrs old" for all you know you bought a grandpa there and it was just time for him to leave....
