R.i.p. Goliath the RTC (necropsy pics)
well my smaller rtc died , he stopped feeding for a while , i tired multiple treatments (antibiotics , anti parasitic, appetite inducers , anti bacterials &anti fungals ....lots of prayer ) and just when he started back feeding he regurgitated his last meal and i lost him he was 18months old and 30" long i hope he found peace
i tried doing a necropsy here are the pics
i discovered some intestinal lesions
also discoloration and evidence of trauma to liver , not sure if attributed to post mortem changes , cause of death or his treatments
all in all i sum up his cause of death to the atrophy of his digestive system due to trauma inflicted by his tankmate (a bigger Rtc)

Man, It always sucks to loose a big long term buddy like that...Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
