    Default Something is wrong with my Tequila!!!

    OK I am now freaking out!!! I just cant help but wonder what is next, there has to be another thing to go wrong...I have been sick as some of you may know and I really haven't been up to much but, I have made sure to feed my Fish & Birds over these past days because if I dont they wont get fed...everyone else has their own chores and they are busy from them if I am sick my stuff falls apart (they can't handle mine too I guess). Anyway I went into the living room a few times today and watched the fish swimming all around and they were fine. Then tonight I am going to shut the light off and tequila is just hanging at the top of the tank on one of the taller plants barely breathing...He usually jumps when I reach to shut the light and he didn't move...I took the net and just stuck it in the water near him...normally he would have swam away but, he just sat there. I don't know what is wrong. The water is doing really great in that tank, I tested all of them earlier this afternoon and all 3 tanks were fine. Well, except the guppy tank but, I have not done the water change on that one yet so I know that is why. I see no signs of anything and he is just barely breathing and not moving. I have been also trying to make sure to leave the over head lights on so he wouldn't fight his reflection anymore until I bought more of the background for the sides of the tank. I am going to be very sad if I loose him now on top of everything else!!

    Old age, has to be. Sometimes like anything, they just die, no reason, they just do. Sorry to hear about that. Water changes, stress coat, aquarium salt, and hope.

    Geez I don't think he is all that old maybe about 6-7 months. I didn't want to do another water change just yet, they were all just moved to this tank and I already did one just before I got sick. I will add some stress coat in the morning if he makes it. All I keep thinking is in some odd way he took all my pain and is making me better and it's taking his life to help me :(...IMAGINE...I think this pain medicine has me thinking NUTZO...either that or I am nuts.

    Hello everyone thanks for your concerns but Tequila lost his battle this morning. I was just down stairs cooking some brunch(poached eggs) and went in to check on him and noticed that he was gone not missing he was just not breathing anymore and upon further investigation I also noticed That I have 1 phantom tetra and 1 white cloud MIA. No signs of them anywhere...their just GONE! This has got me going crazy now. All this just because I got sick!

    Bonnie, how terrible! I have 13 land pets along with my betta and snail, so I can totally relate to the frustration of being sick and not being able to be their main caregiver. Or not be able to be that effective at it cause you can only do the bare minimum.

    I'm sorry for your loss.
