  1. Hi Kruti! I’m saddened about your pet. Truth is, never, ever change the gravel. That’s where the bacteria live that breaks down the ammonia in the water. 10-20% weekly water changes are all that are needed. Also, these fish are from southeast Asia and prefer water temperatures in the low 80’s.

    1. It was below 80 I am sure and I dint change the gravels, I added them. It was a new fish. I transferred it from its plastic store container to the bigger house i made for it 😦

  2. Oh, my, I am sorry about your loss, Kruti! It doesn’t matter how big or small a being is or how long we know it. Because as you said, it is a soul and that is what we connected with. Those fish are very very fragile and you did your best. As sad as it is but it can happen. I had fish too when I was about 10. They had babies and we needed to separate them quickly from the grown-ups in order that they aren’t eaten by them. We collected them in a little tank inside the big tank and we used to adjust that little tank under the rim. Once I added water but I added too much and did not notice that the little tank got below the surface and the little fish escaped. I only found the empty tank and no baby fish anywhere. I felt so very guilty. I know, I did not mean it but it happened and so I understand your sadness very well, dear!

  3. Poor Blue! I know it is sad when our aquatic pals leave us. I was very attached to certain fish in our tropical tank, and when it was their time, I must admit to shedding a tear!
