I've had him for about 8 months now and hes been living quite happy in my 135g always sucking on the glass. Well I had an algae break out in my 5.5 baby guppy tank so I put him in there for a week and he cleaned it right up and back in the 135g he went. A few weeks later I had another outbreak this time in my 10g guppy breader tank so I put him in there for about 4 days and he was doing a great job till today I found him just sitting on the bottom, checked back a few hours later and he hadnt moved :scry: I dont know why he died all the guppies in the tank are fine.

could be from stress, going from a large 135g to a tiny 5.5g would be stressful

Should of taken 4 days though, and he was sucking on different parts of the glass like he always does

Sorry about your fish!
Did you acclimate him everytime first?
I also agree with Cocoa!:22:

That's probably why he died...stress of moving and lack of acclimation...I'm sorry to hear about your loss...
