Sorry for your loss. I can relate as I have lost 2 of them in qt
recently. I think they had cyanide poisioning.
I must be a glutton, I just put a deposit on 2 more from a different lfs
. Just disinfected my qt
and gonna give it another go. These guys look fat, clean and are eating well. See what happens.
I am determined, would like a pair for my final 2 fish. Beautiful fish with a nice disposition and from all I've read, do very well after they acclimate.
Good luck, whatever you decide.
