RIP Herschel and Sheldon

Postby JamieMonster on Sun Jul 08, 2012 3:32 am

My angelfish in one of my tanks started attacking my snails out of the blue. I was able to get most of them out, and to safety in time, and no one seems damaged... except for my 2 males. Sheldon, my pretty ivory boy, and Herschel, my dapper dark olive gentleman. They both passed on this week, I am certain as a result of the angelfish bites. I really didn't expect this to happen, as they had shared the tank peacefully for months, but, angels can be a little on the unpredictable side. I feel really bad about putting them in that tank, now. Godspeed, little dudes, you will be missed... but will live on in spirit through your many babies who are growing up in their nursery tank right now. I just wish I would have taken the time to get your pictures. :(

I am sorry, Jamie. I know how painful it is to lose pets. I'm not as good at expressing condolences as some of the others on this site - but my heart goes out to you. I hope you get lots of beautiful baby snails.

I'm sorry that your two little guys didn't make it. At least they had your love while they were here. They couldn't had been in better care.
