Fate of my Emperor

I posted a few days ago about my Emperor not eating, and today i wake up to find her on the bottom of the tank...arg.

Last night when i got home from work, I noticed there was something wrong with her bottom jaw..it almost looked like it was rotting away..and the flesh looked kind of ripped up..i didnt know what the hell had happened.

I went to the LFS today to talk to them about it, and her conclusion was it probably mistaked my Scorpion fish for a rock when she was grazing..and tried to take a bite.

After examing my Scorpion a few mintues ago, i notice that his first spinal fin looks like it was bitten off. So what happened is most likely the Angel took the Scorp for a rock with some growth on it, and the Scoprion in returned decided to tear his day up.

Oh well, **** happens.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Scorpion Fish are so pretty, I might wanna give it a hug... resulting in my death... if I were a fish.
