Big Boi is no more…

My male dwarf gourami Big Boi died this afternoon. He was propped in a plant at the surface, tilted slightly to one side. I put him in a little ‘hospital tank’ and he stayed the same for a few hours then died. Poor boy, I shall miss his glamourous sparkle in the tank.

How do you know for sure the age of the fish you buy? Perhaps some fish are older as the shops wait for them to develop their showier colours, such as Betta males? I’d like to breed fish in the future, perhaps when I find my favourite types…

  1. I have enjoyed your blog so much I have nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award. Please check my site for the requirements of acceptance. Congradulations!

  2. The eye sounds like pop-eye. Watch your other fish closely. It can happen really quickly. It’s not the water quality as much as it is the “bugs” in the water. Kind of like colds or flu with humans.

  3. Hint if you ever get gold fish or koi. They have problems with “bloat”. They kind of turn side ways. Froze peas work to “heal” them. 🙂
