Well that is unfortunate. If I look down into the tubes I can see white stuff though. Not in all of them, but I'd say 25%. Is there a chance he can come back or do you think it's just a skeleton with no chance?
And if I keep it for a while (just for the vibrant maroon color of the tubes!) will it hurt my water quality?
Sorry about your condy, hank. Any reason you think?
