R.I.P Stripes The Zebra Moray

Hey everyone,

To everyone who was following my posted link about my sick zebra moray and/or trying to help. Thanks, unfortunately I came home from picking up a leather coral yesterday to find that she had passed away. Still unsure of how she died, but myself and a local fish expert will be conducting an autopsy of some sort in a few weeks to see if it was an internal factor that contributed to her downfall. If anyone would like the results of this please PM me and ill get back to you as soon as results are available.

I hope that i do find out what was wrong so that I can pass on the knowledge to fellow moray keepers!!

Thanks for your support everyone!

Poor little bugger or big bugger. I am impressed you are going to go to such great lengths to determine the cause of death. I would like to know how it turns out "just out of curiosity"

Water parameters are: nitrates - 0, nitrites - 0, ammonia - 0, calc - 400.
Protein skimmer going like crazy as usual!

Well i'd like to know how it died, and to find out if i could've done anything to harm it or if there was nothing I could do. As I said before we dont know as much about Eels as we would or normal fish friends so if knowing how it died gives us a little more info on diseases in can inherit, symptoms and methods of dealing with it, we can all promote the well being of this species.
