Our little fighter, S.I.P.

We lost our new little oranda today. He was the cutest little guy, we bought him even though he was obviously sick.

 

He ended up having gill maggots, we couldn't get any meds for him and he just... passed. He fought so hard too, he was chock full of parasites and still eating as of yesterday morning. It looks like his gills were just too congested to move anymore. 

 

Swim in Peace little buddy, you've earned it <3

Thanks Jared, I think you're right. 

 

Even if we'd gotten the meds, and the parasites had fallen off, and the antibiotics had kept infection at bay... the scarring would've been pretty extensive. I don't think he could've made it, he was too badly infested  :cry
