Lucky--RIP

Well I finally put my gourami down. She had made an amazing improvement but about 3 days ago, the dropsy came back with a vengence. I didn't want her to suffer anymore, so with a heavy heart, I euthanized her. She is in a better place. I will miss her a lot, I fought so hard to save her. But it wasn't about me anymore.

So sorry to hear that Anne. You have been battling two fronts simultaneously and I applaud your courage.

Thanks everyone, I'll leave the tank as is. There are a few gourami in it and they were added in such a fashion that I have no aggression as of yet. I'm afraid to add any more that might disturb that delicate balance. I think I've had enough fish stress lately.
