RIP Yin

RIP Yin. :( You put up a good fight, but I failed to treat you and make you better. :(

He was improving for weeks and then just a few days ago took a turn for the worse and died. :( One of my favorite fishies....



I'm so depressed! :'(

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

Awwwww.... so sorry about Yin :( He sure was a beautiful fish.

It's the worst when we make all good attempts to save them and nothing helps them in the long run.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I should have treated him for parasites but my gut told me to hold off because he seemed to be improving, which was apparently wrong.... I don't like using antibiotics on myself (it's not so great for the body), so I figured it was best to see if he would heal on his own since he seemed to improve... he was coming out with the rest of the fish, and while he only ate brine shrimp (refused all others) he was eating voraciously and his poo seemed to be healthier. My other fish did the same thing several months ago and appears completely normal now. Randomly he just took a turn for the worse and started sitting at the top and not coming out to eat. He looks bloated, and a little white thing hanging from his anus (his poop was white), and in the past few days his fins seemed to be disintegrating. He is still alive... but in the last few hours he's stopped using his pectoral fins (saw him swim once) and was just breathing slowly sitting at the top with decaying fins (while all the other fish are healthy seeming). He seems very close to death at the point of no return now. :/
