hello, my 10 year old fantail, Rocky is quite ill at the moment. i was very sure that she was refusing food and giving up, but i was wrong. i prepared syringe food for her, and she surprised me by accepting the feed. i hope this gives her enough strength so that she can receive her medicines well and begin to recover. anyhow, i hope this video that i have made, is helpful to you at your time of need.
Hi guys... A bit of bad news … I returned home from work today to find my fantail Rocky had passed away. There wasn’t a blemish on him, and the end seems to have been quite peaceful. It was touching to see the other three guys keeping watch over him, and they seemed to be protecting his body. He has been intermittently bottom sitting and gasping for some weeks … he also seemed to be getting a little “floaty” on occasions, sometimes losing control of his swimming. I am confident that the filter failure I experienced a few weeks ago, and which resulted in some Ammonia increase and water "bloom"contributed to his demise. I have buried him in the garden, in a little flowered section dedicated to my previous deceased fish; I placed him in with “The Pink Lady” and several other beloved fish I have lost over the years. Anyway, at least he is not suffering any longer, that's a big comfort and consolation..... Bye Rocky .... R.I.P. Here's the last footage of him, taken just a few days ago .....
