Fish die all the time because they won't eat. I really don't think one bad experience with a fish is worth quitting over. We've ALL killed fish. We've ALL had fish that didn't eat or got sick or just were bum stock. It happens. It's an unfortunate fact of life in this hobby.

I think this is nothing more than a chance to get back on the horse. Don't get frustrated.

In all honesty I would have bought cheaper fish for a new tank to test the waters. It took me about 6 months to be at a point with no fish death.

Clowns. Cardinals. Firefish. Basic simple fish. get your tank going then start adding expensive fish.
