Lost a BN today

Don't have a clue the cause, I think it was old age. He was 5.5 inches long and a beaut.

No problems with the tank,
pH 7.2
GH 8
KH 7
Ammonia 0
Nitrites 0
Nitrates 15-20
PO4 1-1.5
Temp steady at 78
Was eating normally 2 days ago and then died today
No signs of disease and a full belly, not constipated because he pooped yesterday. Ate some zucchini 2 days ago and the female in the tank is helathy as ever. No other signs of fish in distress and no neons died so I have to assume it was just his time.

Guess I will have to find a smaller male to try and get the mating I hoped from him.

RIP Bud

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.

I had him about 9 months but would guess he was close to 4-? years old if not older. Haven't been able to find any real reliable data on their ages and sizes but the ones I did find said that a 5 in brown BN is likely over 4 years.

Sounds old indeed. You just reminded me though that I am supposed to be keeping a record of my fish's age.
I have a 5 yrs old SAE here. He's not showing signs of old age. Whereas my male blue ram at a year old did. He died reaching the age of one year.

Sorry to hear about the BN Chris, it sounds like it was just his time to go.

Good luck with getting another male :)
