I'm very sad. I have to euthanize my first fish today
. It's an ancient guppy, but one of my fish nontheless. My rescue guppies apparently still had dormant IP and they gave it to all my other fish when I moved them. I'm moving all the fish (5 cories and 2 guppies) into my QT tank for treatment (time to bring out that Clout that I ordered), but this guy is just too far gone. He is bloated severely and has about 3 open sores (and this is a small fish, so that's practically his whole abdomen). He's just maimed and it's only been a few days since I noticed it and went to work preparing everything for the move.
Oh, and my demon tank is going down too
. The setup just didn't work and my fish were never happy. I'll actually be glad to be rid of it because looking at it just made me sad and not relaxed like it's supposed to. Once I set up my 29 gallon I'll be redoing it, but until then I think I'll just bleach the entire thing and scoop out the gunk (or should I say money)
. I don't want to get the worms too!
Poor fish, I hope the others will recover fully. I am going to have my dad do it.....because it's just too sad for me
Hope I didn't depress anyone, it's just no one here understands. When I tell my mom I'm tearing the tank down she'll likely be like "why, there's nothing wrong with it!" The one thing I've learned is to trust my instincts. If something's not right I know it, next time I won't wait so long.
