Lost a fish... depressed

I just lost Ethel, a sunset platy, mother to Sushi and Frieda.

Poor thing had been through all of my newbie mistakes and through her life had to recover from ick, tail rot and dropsy. Her mate Fred was my first to go two months ago. She was a fighter, but it was finally her time to go.

Hi Playlady,
Sorry about Ethel She had a good life with you! Like Tigerlily said, you have her babies too.

I remember when my favorite cardinal died, or stopped coming to the feeder. I was sad, and then his "son" from the summer before came, and is still coming to my feeders. How do I know it's my favorite cardinal's "son"? I remember when the father cardinal brought his "son" to my feeder for the first time! They both had a large gray fuzzy patch of feathers under their left wing!

So, you have Ethel and Fred's babies, and soon (maybe?) you'll have the grand "fry"!

PlatyLady, I'm feeling your pain. I just found one of my new otos head-down in a plant The other three are so far, still okay.

Losing fish is such a bummer. It's true what TigerLily said--at least you have her babies.

Take care.

If I got depressed from lossing a fish, I'd have killed my self along time ago.


I have not had much luck with moving fish or keeping Angels...

Aw, I'm sorry PlatyLady.

You did an awesome job with her tho; pulled her thru some pretty nasty situations. Impressive.
