Im sorry. It does suck when you lose them. Its all part if the experience. Take it as a learning experience and move on. Do you know why it died?

It happens, I'm sorry for your loss

I have a horrible thread where I'm now at the downward part of a terrible bacteria that took 10 of my Africans

Columnaris is a horrible thing!!

What are your water conditions? Size of tank? Other tank mates? Did it show any signs? Just died?

Well from experience with my fish, your gonna want to try to ID what it was that caused the death and watch your tank! Maybe a PWC. If it's a bacteria your gonna want to make sure it didn't spread. Hopefully more knowledgeable members will chime in. For me I had to lower the temp and add kosher salt. But again that was for MY TANK NOT YOURS. Let the others help out more.

Good luck.

Thats an interesting mix you had with that cichlid. Was size tank.
