Unfortunately I lost one of my favourite fish in my cichlid tank last night. My beautiful electric blue acara (pic attached).
She was old and had what I hope is a happy life. My son just asked me “Dad...did the acara die of fish Corona?”
Cheered me up. 😊
I'm sorry to see that. She was a beauty. It's always sad to lose an animal regardless of the species.
Did she have a partner?
@fredl99 she did, but we lost him around 6 months ago. I’d had them 8 years, so that’s a pretty good innings. So sad though, they were beautiful fish.
My fishtank times are long behind and I never had cichlids. But I think to remember they live in permanent partnership and usually don't live very much longer than their partner. If so then her passing was more or less a natural cause. I'm sure she had a good life.
